Seriously....we promise it's not meat!

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 230°C
  2. Mix all batter ingredients together until it is the consistency of pancake batter. If it is dry, add water, 1 Tbsp at a time, if it is too wet, add more flour.
  3. Dip cauliflower bites into batter and place on an oven tray.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes, flipping once after 15 minutes.
  5. Now mix all ingredients for the BBQ sauce in a saucepan on medium heat. Bring to a simmer and then turn the heat down, stir occasionally for 15 minutes, then take off the heat.
  6. Take the battered cauli-bites out of the oven – the bites batter should be sealed and dry by now.
  7. Dip each cauli-bite into the BBQ sauce (use a skewer or fork if it’s hot!). Please each piece back onto the oven tray – pour any excess sauce over the bites.
  8. Put bites back into the oven for 15minutes.
  9. Serve with some sesame seeds sprinkled on top and enjoy!

 

‘Bacon’ bits

These are so simple to make, are much healthier than their namesake when sprinkled over roast potatoes and other vegetables, give a delicious, meaty kick!
