  • 1head cauliflower
  • 1.5cups flourwhole wheat or white flour
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 2tsp salt
  • 1tsp pepper
  • 2tsp garlic granulesor garlic powder
  • 2tsp onion powder
  • 2tsp dried oreganooptional, but delicious!
  • 2cups bread crumbs
  • 1.5cups BBQ saucepick your favorite brand (see ours in link below)
  1. Pre-heat oven to 425. While oven is heating, slice cauliflower into bite-size pieces and make your batter.
  2. To make the batter, grab a large bowl. In the bowl, mix your flour, water, salt, pepper, garlic, onion powder, and oregano together. Mixture should be a similar consistency to pancake batter. Then put your bread crumbs into a smaller bowl next to your batter bowl.
  3. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet (or use a reusable baking mat) and place in the same proximity of your bowls of batter and bread crumbs.
  4. Now it’s time to dip your cauliflower tenders in batter. Take one cauliflower piece and first, coat it entirely in batter. Allow excess batter to drip off, then dip the cauliflower piece in bread crumbs. Once you’ve rolled it around and it’s fully coated, transfer the piece to the baking sheet. Repeat this process for all remaining cauliflower pieces.
  5. By now, your oven has hopefully heated up and you’re ready to bake. Place full baking sheet in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until outer coating is starting to crisp and brown.
  6. Remove from oven and place your freshly cooked tenders into a large bowl. Pour BBQ sauce over top and mix or shake bowl to evenly distribute the sauce. Serve hot with a Vegan Cashew Dill Dressing (for recipe see notes below).
