Ingredients
  

  • 1 large cauliflower pulled into florets

BATTER

  • 75 g or 70g plain all purpose flour
  • 120 ml 120 ml water
  • 1 teaspoon paprika - smoked is best
  • 1 tsp each of garlic and onion powders if you have them. A little minced garlic will work too.
  • 1 tsp dried oregano or other herbs if you prefer
  • 1 tsp good strong mustard
  • Sea salt and black pepper.. a couple of grinds of each
  • I like a little ground cumin but that’s upto you

CRUNCHY CRUMB

  • 75 g cornflakes
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp opinion powder optional
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • Sea salt and black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 160 degrees for fan assisted or 180 degrees
  • Line a baking tray with baking parchment or a baking liner. Spray or brush lightly and evenly with oil.

THE BATTER STEP

  • Mix your batter ingredients - the flour, water and spices. Add cauliflower to the mix and work it in with your hands. Lift out the florets and shake off excess batter.

THE CRUNCH STEP

  • Smash the cornflakes to a crumb in a food bag with a rolling pin or process quickly in a food processor
  • Mix the cornflakes with the other crunch coating ingredients
  • Take the cauliflower florets that have been battered and the excess shaken off, toss in the crumb
  • Place on the tray and spray with oil. Bake for around 20 mins.
  • If you want to go the extra mile, drizzle on some sticky BBQ sauce and pop back in for 5 mins.
  • Serve with more BBQ, a creamy blue cheese sauce or make a cooling dip with yoghurt lemon, paprika and chives.

Notes

*** Make completely gluten free by using chickpea flour or a gluten free blend for the batter phase 
*** If you want a fried effect, use your air fryer, shallow fry or deep fry in light vegetable oil. Remember to drain well! 
*** Shop bought good quality BBQ sauce is absolutely fine if you want to brush over the cauliflower bites before popping back in the oven.
