Sticky sesame cauli wings

SERVES: 10  TIME: 1 hr 30 mins

No more food they said at our Good Grills Gone Bad BBQ, until we brought out these show stoppers – arguably one of the highlights of the evening and so simple to make. We even noticed some of our guests sneaking some into their pockets on the way out!

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 and then heat oil in the baking tray

  2. Cut the cauliflower into florets

  3. In a bowl combine the flour, salt, baking powder and almond milk.

  4. Dip the cauliflower into the flour and almond batter and shake off the excess; arranging the cauliflower on a baking tray as you go. Make sure they are arranged in a single layer so they cook properly otherwise you’re gonna get a sticky lump – and nobody wants that.

  5. Bake the cauliflower for 10 minutes

  6. Whilst the cauliflower is baking, combine all of the ingredients (except the cornflour and cold water) for the sticky sauce in a pan and gently heat until it simmers.

  7. Combine the cornflour and water and add to the sauce, blend and heat for a further 2 minutes, this will thicken it up.

  8. Once the cauliflower has begun to brown pull the tray out, brush with the remaining oil and return to the oven for a further 5 minutes.

  9. When your cauli is crispy pour over the sticky sesame goodness while gently turning the cauliflower to coat completely.

  10. Pop the tray back into the oven for a further 5 minutes (or until you are happy with the consistency of the sauce, think sticky and then go stickier).

  11. Pull out the cauliflower and garnish with chopped spring onions and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

We served ours in a large sharing dish with kebab skewers instead of cutlery and let our guests battle it out – courteously of course…
