  • 1 kg cauliflower
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ tablespoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup plant-based milk we used unsweetened soy milk
  • 2 cups bread crumbs
  • 100 ml Crazy Bastard Sauce or any other hot sauce
  • cup olive oil


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Cut the cauliflower into medium size florets.
  • In a large mixing bowl add the flour, sweet paprika, pepper, salt, garlic powder and milk. Mix all the ingredients together. The batter should be smooth with all ingredients incorporated.
  • Add the cauliflower florets into the batter and evenly coat. Prepare the bread crumbs in a separate bowl. With your hand, take one cauliflower floret, dip it into the bread crumbs so it covers the whole floret and place on a baking tray. Repeat for the rest of the cauliflower.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • In a medium size bowl, add the hot sauce and the olive oil and mix. Coat the cauliflower florets with the hot sauce, and place on the same baking tray. When the whole batch is evenly coated, bake for another 20 minutes until crisp and golden.
  • Serve with your prefered sauce.
