Roasted Jerk Cauliflower

  • 1 head cauliflower, florets

Cauliflower Batter

  • 1/2 c. unsweetened, non-dairy milk (we used oat)
  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 Tbs nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp salt

Jerk Sauce

  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 1 tsp dried ginger
  • 5-6 whole allspice
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1-2 peppercorn seeds
  • 1/4 c. soy sauce
  • 1/4 c. tomato sauce
  • 1-2 Tbs agave nectar
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • Chopped green onions (for garnish)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF and lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Whisk together all the cauliflower batter ingredients.
  3. Dip the florets in the batter and spread them out evenly onto the baking sheet, leaving some space between the florets.
  4. Place the cauliflower in the oven and bake for about 30-35 minutes, flipping the florets halfway through.
  5. Meanwhile, create the jerk sauce by adding all the ingredients to a blender and blending until smooth.
  6. Once the cauliflower is cooked, toss it with the jerk sauce and garnish with chopped scallions.
  7. Save any left over jerk sauce in a sealed container in the refrigerator and use for other recipes or serve with greens.
