This is a really creative and delicious way to eat more cauliflower: a versatile and superfood vegetable that’s rich in antioxidants. Although there’s a bit of prep work before these skewers hit the grill, the sticky, sweet and spicy result is worth every minute. While we offer a simple BBQ sauce recipe, you can always swap for store-bought.
Preheat the oven to 400ºF and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Chop the cauliflower into large florets.
Combine the flour, milk, sea salt and pepper in a bowl, whisk until smooth and thick.
Coat each cauliflower floret into the flour mixture and place on the baking sheets – don’t overcrowd them. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until crisp on the outside.
Meanwhile, make the BBQ sauce by combining all of the ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring it to a simmer and let cook for 15 minutes, stirring every so often, until it thickens.
Let the cauliflower cool, then drizzle the BBQ sauce over and sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Save some sauce to be served on the side of the skewers.
Place 3 to 4 cauliflower florets on a skewer. If you’re using wooden skewers, make sure you soak them first.
Heat your grill to medium and oil it well. Place the cauliflower on the grill for 3 to 4 minutes per side, no need to cover.
Remove from the grill and top with chopped green onions and cilantro. Sprinkle some extra sesame seeds over top. Serve extra BBQ sauce on the side.
