Yield:
4 to 6 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • Nonstick cooking spray, for spraying the baking sheet
  • 1 cup white rice flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into 2- to 3-inch florets, stems reserved for another use
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Carrot and celery sticks, for serving
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly spray a nonstick baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the rice flour, garlic powder, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Whisk in 1 cup water until completely incorporated and you have a thin batter. Add the cauliflower florets and toss to coat completely with the batter. Use tongs or a fork to remove the florets from the bowl, allowing excess batter to drip off. Place in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake until the batter begins to set, about 10 minutes. Use tongs or a spatula to flip the florets and bake the other side until the batter looks completely dry, about 10 minutes longer.

  • Meanwhile, combine the barbecue sauce and butter in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the butter is melted.

  • When the cauliflower is done, use a pastry brush to completely coat the florets with the sauce. Bake again until the florets are crispy and the sauce is completely absorbed, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve with carrot and celery sticks on the side.

Cook's Note: Substitute wing sauce for barbecue sauce and you can serve Buffalo cauliflower wings!
