Cauliflower Bites - Who Needs a Deep Fryer for a Tasty Appetizer?
Cauliflower bites - baked, not fried, easy to make regular or gluten free, and no deep frying.
1 head Cauliflower, chopped into bite sized florets
1/2 cup gluten free flour (Almond works nicely)
3/4 - 1 cup Water or Almond Milk
2 tsp Garlic Powder (optional)
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Orange Sauce (I like Iron Chef brand) or your favorite gluten-free BBQ Sauce
Preheat the oven to 450 F. (230 C.)
Place cauliflower in a bowl and set aside.
In a small bowl mix the flour, water/milk, garlic powder (if using) and salt. For a thinner consistency, add more water.
Dip the cauliflower into the batter and place on a lined (I used foil which made for some crispy crunchy spots on the final outcome) baking tray. Be careful not to make the batter too thick on the cauliflower.
Allow the cauliflower to bake for 25 minutes.
Remove the cauliflower from the heat and coat with the Orange Sauce or BBQ. Bake for another 15 minutes.
Remove from the heat and serve immediately. Recipe can easily be cut in half for a snack for two. It's also good over rice as a main course with extra sauce on the side.
