Vegan BBQ Maple Cauliflower Bites
These cauliflower bites are reminiscent of honey chicken wings or bbq pork ribs I indulged in as a child. The sauce is sweet, a little tangy and has the wonderful flavour profile of bbq sauce!
All you have to do is:
- Cut the cauliflower into florets. Prepare the batter and dip the florets in. Bake for 20 minutes.
- Prepare the maple bbq glaze. Dip the battered cauliflower in the glaze. Bake for another 10 minutes
Then you're one step closer to bliss!
Assembling the wraps
First, make your butter bean puree and spread thickly on your wraps!
I always love packing my wraps with lots of fresh vegetables to complement the main filling.
Since the cauliflower is pretty strong in flavour, I preferred subtle and fresh vegetables such as salad leaves, cucumber and capsicum. Vegetables such as zucchini, spinach, lettuce and tomatoes would work too!
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
