For the batter

  • 1 cup gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp onion granules
  • 1 cup plant-based milk

For the breading

  • 1 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast


  • 5 cups cauliflower florets, (around 1 large head cauliflower)

For the almond sauce

  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 1/2 tsp paprika


  • Conventional oven
  • Two mixing bowls
  • Whisk
  • Baking tray
  • Parchment paper


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (350 F) and line a baking tray with parchment paper. 
  • Prepare the batter. In a large bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour, salt, onion, and plant-based milk. Make sure the ingredients are well-combined and no lumps remain.
  • Prepare the breading. In another bowl, mix together the gluten-free breadcrumbs, paprika, cumin, turmeric and nutritional yeast. 
  • Dip each cauliflower floret into the batter, making sure that it is well coated on all sides. Then, coat in the breading and lay out on a sheet of parchment paper.
  • Once you have breaded all of the cauliflower, bake in the oven for around 25 minutes, until golden brown and crispy on the outside but still soft on the inside.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. Simply whisk together almond butter, maple syrup, tamari and paprika. 
  • Serve the cauliflower with the almond dip. It is best served immediately or after a period of cooling of 15-30 minutes.



You can test the cauliflower for readiness by carefully lifting one piece of cauliflower off the baking tray, waiting for it to cool down completely and then testing with a toothpick or a fork.
