KITCHEN EQUIPMENT I USED:
- Wooden or reusable skewers
- Baking sheet
- Large Bowl
- Measuring Utensils
- Small saucepan
- Chef’s Knife
Full Recipe Measurements & Instructions are down below!
- 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 cup unsweetened soy milk
- ¼ tsp sea salt + more to taste
- ¼ tsp onion powder
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- 2 small or 1 large head of cauliflower, cut into large florets
- 1 cup BBQ sauce of choice
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- 3 large garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
- If using wood, soak your skewers in a pan of water.
- Line 1-2 baking sheets with parchment paper and preheat oven to 400F.
- In a large bowl, whisk together flour, soy milk, salt, onion powder and pepper until smooth. If you find it is too watery, add a tablespoon of flour at a time to thicken. It should be close to a pancake batter consistency.
- Add your cauliflower, and toss to coat each floret completely.
- Place each floret onto the lined baking sheets, leaving space between each one. This will ensure they crisp up rather than steam.
- Place into the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until crispy.
- Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, add the BBQ, soy sauce, garlic and vinegar, and bring to just below a boil, stirring constantly. Cook until it thickens slightly and remove from the heat and set aside.
- When the cauliflower is crispy remove from the oven, add onion wedges to the pan and allow to cool.
- Drizzle with BBQ sauce, and sprinkle with some sesame seeds.
- Add 3 florets onto a skewer, and end with an onion wedge
- Heat your grill to medium and grease it to prevent sticking.
- Cook the cauliflower on the grill for roughly 3-4 minutes each side.
- Serve on a plate or platter topped with fresh herbs of choice, green onions and sesame seeds, as well as extra BBQ sauce on the side.
