½ head of a medium Cauliflower, cut into florets
1 cup organic whole meal or gluten-free all purpose flour
1 cup organic whole meal or all purpose flour, separated
1 cup vegan bread crumbs
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp smoked paprika
1 cup water
Cooking spray (optional)

For the sauce:
1 cup cane sugar
½ cup water
1/3 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp garlic powder


1)  Preheat the oven to 200°C (375°F).

2)  Prepare ingredients for the batter by taking 3 different bowls; one bowl for 1 cup of flour,  water, garlic powder and paprika - combine all until and mix well. Another bowl for 1 cup of flour and the last bowl for the breadcrumbs.

3)  Put all the cauliflower into the wet mixture and mix evenly.

4)  Remove from bowl piece by piece carefully and put into the flour mixture. Gently flour the surface by pressing lightly.

5)  Once done, transfer the cauliflower floret to the breadcrumb mixture. Make sure the surface is covered.

6)  Repeat the same thing until all cauliflower florets are covered with the breadcrumb mixture. (Add more breadcrumbs or flour if needed.)

7)  Place the florets on a baking sheet or pan. Spray florets with a light layer with cooking spray to make the end result more crunchy  if desired.

8)  Bake for 15 minutes until the cauliflower florets are golden brown. When the baking is near done, prepare the sauce by placing a saucepan (or non-stick pan) over medium-high heat.

9)  Add water, cane sugar and garlic powder, and stir mixture with a wooden spoon, until the water starts to boil.

10)  Let it simmer for about 6-8 minutes. Add the lemon juice and avoid stirring to prevent the sugar from re-crystallising. Once the cane sugar has completely dissolved, watch the mixture carefully as it can burn quickly. The mixture should should reach a rich, brown colour when done.

11)  Remove cauliflower from the oven when done. Dip the cauliflower into the sauce and mix well.

12)  Serve and enjoy!

NOTE: No real 'honey' was used despite the title. It is just to indicate that the dish can be just as sweet even without it.
