  • Baking Sheet


  • 1 large Cauliflower broken into 1-2 bite florets
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Panko Japanese style bread crumbs
  • 1 tbsp Paprika
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tbsp Black Pepper freshly cracked
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Peri Peri Sauce plus more for dipping


  • Prepare the batter by whisking together the milk, flour, paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, and salt. Add the panko and adjust with more milk if it is too thick.
  • Dip the cauliflower florets into the batter so they are completely coated, and place them on a parchment or silicone lined baking sheet.
  • Place the tray in the oven preheated to 225 Celsius for 10 minutes. Flip the cauliflower and brush on some peri peri sauce. Bake for another 10 minutes, flip again, and add more peri peri sauce.
  • Reduce the temperature to 200 Celsius and place the tray back in the oven for another 20 minutes. Remove and serve with blue cheese dressing and extra peri peri sauce.


The whipped blue cheese dressing is the same one I used for my Iceberg Wedge recipe, which is just a whipped instead of simmered version of my classic Gorgonzola sauce.
