  • Baking tray


  • 1 medium (600g) head cauliflower cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ¾ cup (50g) almond flour
  • cup (30g) coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt


  • ½ cup (115g) unsweetened ketchup
  • ¼ cup (60g) water
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • 2 tablespoon tamari soy sauce or other gluten-free soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoon (60g) unsalted butter


  • 2 small shallots cubed
  • 3 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • Cilantro chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 200C (390F).
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the cubed shallots and white wine vinegar and set aside.
  • Cut the cauliflower head into bite-size pieces.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and salt to taste. In another bowl, beat 2 eggs.
  • Dip the cauliflower in the egg mixture and shake off the excess. Then, transfer into the bowl with the dry mixture and toss around until fully coated. Place onto a baking tray lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Repeat with the rest of the cauliflower.
  • Bake for 15-17 minutes or until the cauliflower picks up a golden color.
  • Meanwhile, combine all sauce ingredients in a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat until the butter has melted and the sauce starts simmering. Remove from the heat.
  • When the cauliflower has finished baking, remove from the oven and brush the sauce on the cauliflower; bake for an additional 10-12 minutes or until slightly browned and fork-tender.
  • Fish out shallots from the vinegar before using them as a topping.
  • Serve the cauliflower bites warm, topped with freshly-chopped cilantro and marinated shallots with a dipping sauce of your choice.
