Bang Bang Cauliflower Bites
A veggie version of a restaurant copycat recipe, these sweet and spicy Asian-inspired bites are an addictive appetizer or vegetable side dish.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
For the cauliflower:
- One large head cauliflower
- ½ cup brown rice flour (can use all-purpose flour)
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- ½ cup almond milk or your milk of choice
Stir together the ingredients for the Bang Bang Sauce in a bowl and set aside.
Preheat your oven to 450°F, and spray a baking sheet with oil or cooking spray.
Cut the cauliflower into florets. The smaller they are, the faster they will cook and softer they will get.
Whisk together the remaining ingredients in a bowl.
Toss the cauliflower in the batter until thoroughly coated.
Arrange the cauliflower on the baking sheet in a single layer.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until slightly less done than you want them.
Remove from the oven and gently flip the cauliflower. Return to the oven for another 5-10 minutes, or until golden brown and tender.
Transfer the cauliflower to a bowl, pour over the Bang Bang Sauce (you can reserve some for dipping, if desired), and gently toss to coat.
