You might have to make a few minor adjustments to the recipe.

Depending on your flour you might need to add maybe two tables more milk.

You might also need to double the cauliflower batter (four and milk) recipe.


I ran out of batter and still had much of the cauliflower left to batter.


For the remaining cauliflower I poured the batter on and mixed it covering the cauliflower much lighter.

Now back to the recipe.

Ingredients for 6 servings

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

2 Tablespoons soy sauce

1/4 cup honey

1 garlic clove crushed

1 teaspoon finely minced fresh rosemary

1/4 teaspoon salt

a few grinds black pepper

1 large cauliflower – broken down into florets

1/2 cup flour (Brianne used brown rice flour, I used white rice flour)

1/2 cup milk (Brianne used almond milk, I used buttermilk in my first batch and nonfat in my second batch…for me the buttermilk came out with a nicer crust)


In a smaller bowl combine balsamic, soy sauce, honey, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper and set aside.

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F and get out and spray or oil your baking sheet(s)

Whisk the milk and flour together and toss the cauliflower in the batter till coated.

Arrange cauliflower on baking sheet(s) in a single layer.

Bake 15 minutes or slightly less.

Remove from oven and pour on sauce (too much sauce I didn’t use it all)

Put bake in oven for 5 minutes.

Take out and gently flip the cauliflower.

Put back in another 5 minutes.


They are tasty but on the sweet side.

I added a sprinkles of oregano, basil and shredded parmesan cheese to balance the sweetness out for me.

It’s a great recipe and after you make it then you can personalize it for your taste.

For next time I am leaving out the soy sauce and will cut back on the honey.
