Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

½ C (125 ml) cake flour
½ C (125 ml) cornflour
2 Tbsp (30 ml) vegan-friendly BBQ spice mix
1 tsp (5 ml) garlic salt
pinch black pepper
1 C (250 ml) non-dairy milk (almond, rice, oat or soya milk)
2 C (500 ml) breadcrumbs
500 g cauliflower florets
oil, for deep-frying
salt

BBQ Sauce

½ C (125 ml) tomato sauce
2 Tbsp (30 ml) water
1 Tbsp (15 ml) Westfalia Garlic Flavoured Avocado Oil
1 Tbsp (15 ml) vegan-friendly Worcestershire sauce (we use Biona)
1 Tbsp (15 ml) apple cider vinegar
1 tsp (5 ml) vegan-friendly BBQ spice mix
½ tsp (2.5 ml) salt

Salsa

½ C (125 ml) red onion, finely chopped
½ C (125 ml) celery, finely chopped
½ C (125 ml) cucumber, finely chopped
½ C (125 ml) Granny Smith apple, finely chopped
1 tsp (5 ml) apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper

To Serve

2 x 200 g Westfalia Spicy Guacamole
handful basil leaves (optional)

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Combine the cake flour, cornflour, BBQ spice, garlic salt, pepper and non-dairy milk in a large mixing bowl and whisk until smooth.

Place the breadcrumbs in a separate large mixing bowl. Dip each cauliflower floret into the wet batter and then roll in breadcrumbs to evenly coat.

Heat the oil for deep-frying to 180 °C. Fry the crumbed cauliflower bites in batches until golden and crisp (2-3 minutes each). Drain on kitchen paper and season lightly with salt.

BBQ Sauce

Combine the ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Brush the sauce onto the crisp cauliflower bites just before serving.

Salsa

Mix all of the ingredients together and season to taste.

To Serve

Top the cauliflower bites with the salsa for some added crunch and serve with Westfalia Spicy Guacamole, for dipping. Garnish with a few basil leaves, if preferred.

TIP: The cauliflower bites also work well as a topping for salads or as a crunchy element in wraps and pitas.
