By Earth of Maria

🔪Prep Time: 10 mins

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 20 mins


1/2 cup chickpea flour

1/2 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour

1 tsp cumin

1 cup plant based milk

1 head cauliflower, chopped into florets

1.5 cups orange juice, (around 2 large oranges)

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup tamari

2 tbsp orange zest

2 tbsp tomato paste

5 tbsp water

2 cloves garlic

2 tbsp cornstarch

3 tbsp black sesame seeds, to serve (optional)


1First, preheat the oven to 200 degrees C/400 F.

2Prepare the batter by whisking together the chickpea flour, gluten-free flour, cumin, and plant based milk.

3Dip each cauliflower floret in the batter, making sure it's evenly and thoroughly coated. Lay out the florets on a sheet of baking paper over a baking tray. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.

4Meanwhile, whisk together the orange juice, apple cider vinegar, tamari, orange zest, tomato paste, water, garlic cloves and cornstarch.

5When the cauliflower is ready, transfer it into a bowl. Pour the sauce into a frying pan and stir for 2-3 minutes over a medium heat, until it starts to bubble and thicken up.

6At this stage add the cauliflower and stir until the sauce is fully thickened and the cauliflower is evenly coated. Serve with sesame seeds over a bed of rice or noodles of your choice.
