Sticky Cauliflower Bites

Sticky, rich and sweet, cauliflower has never looked better. I would eat cauliflower in almost any format, but this recipe is the most decadent and indulgent version. Made with peanut butter, maple syrup, ginger and spices, it's perfect for a dinner party, potluck or festive celebration.

  • 200ml vegan milk
  • 100g plain flour (gluten free if required)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder (gluten free if required)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 200g breadcrumbs (gluten free if required)
