Bang Bang Cauliflower (Vegan & Gluten Free)

Get ready to eat the best-ever cauliflower! This bang bang cauliflower is battered, baked and then gets topped off with a sweet and spicy chilli sauce!

Seriously, who knew cauliflower could be such a chameleon. I mean, once it’s prepped and tossed up in the sweet and spicy chilli sauce it’s hard to believe that it’s even cauliflower hidden under there!

I love cauliflower in vegetarian cooking for its versatility. You can turn it into soup, rice and now even deliciously batter-coated bites! Cauliflower has a great dense and meaty texture, so it’s really satiating as far as veggies go. It also contains tons of vitamins, fibre and antioxidants. So basically you should be making this recipe on the reg. (I know I’ve been…)

You’ll Need:

  • 1 cup gluten-free flour (can sub any flour)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets

Bang bang sauce:

  • 1/3 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp sriracha
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and line a baking pan with parchment paper
  2. Mix the flour, almond milk, salt and pepper together in a bowl until smooth.
  3. Dip each piece of cauliflower into the batter, let any excess batter drip off then place the cauliflower bites on the baking pan.
  4. Bake for 22-25 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  5. Mix all the sauce ingredients together in a bowl. Toss the cauliflower and sauce together.
  6. Serve immediately.


  • Serve this dish up with a side of rice! If you don’t want to bake the cauliflower, you can also fry the cauliflower bites in a pan.
