- Half a head of cauliflower, cut into bite sized florets
- 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 2 eggs, whisked
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp bouillon or vegetable stock
- 2 tsp flour plus ¼ cup water
- 2 Tbsp soy sauce
Preheat oven to 180 C. Set whisked eggs aside in a small bowl. Set panko breadcrumbs aside in a separate bowl. Dip cauliflower pieces in the egg and then roll in the panko crumbs until fully coated and place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Repeat until all the cauliflower pieces are coated. Bake for 15 – 20 mins or until the coating is a golden brown and crunchy. While the cauliflower is cooking make the sauce on the stove. Add all sauce ingredients except the flour and water. Bring to a simmer and stir until completely mixed. In a jar with a lid, mix together the flour and water, put the lid on and shake until flour is completely dissolved. Add the flour mixture to the sauce. Keep stirring until the sauce reaches a low boil and cook until it thickens (about 2 minutes). Pour sauce over cauliflower and toss until completely coated. Garnish with chives or green onions if desired. Serve warm.

This roasted cauliflower is a little different than your average roasted cauliflower, and the kids absolutely love it! The recipe comes from a course I’m in the middle of doing – it’s an online cook school called Rouxbe. If you’re at all interested in cooking I highly recommend it, it’s an amazingly informative course chock full of info on all aspects of cooking and nutrition. I’ve been completely blown away by the information I’ve absorbed so far.
- 1 clove garlic
- zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
- 2 to 3 tbsp olive oil (or other oil of your choice)
To make the dressing, crush the garlic over a large bowl. Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Whisk in the olive oil. Set aside while you prepare the cauliflower.
Preparing and Roasting the Cauliflower:
- 1 whole head cauliflower
- parmesan cheese* (optional)
To start the cauliflower, preheat your oven to 230 degrees (450° degrees Fahrenheit). Remove the large florets from the cauliflower and cut them into even-sized pieces. Any of the very large florets can be sliced in half. Place the cauliflower into the dressing and toss to coat.
To roast the cauliflower, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Lay any flat pieces of cauliflower cut-side down, so they caramelize nicely. Roast for about 10 minutes before tossing. Return to the oven for about 3 or 4 minutes or until it is almost cooked through.
Once it is almost cooked through, grate some fresh parmesan cheese over top, if desired. Place back into the oven for another minute or so, just to melt the cheese.
Transfer to a serving dish and enjoy.
