Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (60 g) chickpea flour
  • 1/3 cup (80 mL) water
  • 2 tablespoons (7.5 g)nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cups chopped cauliflower florets (8 oz/ 227g)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F (200C). Grease or spray 18 cups of a miniature muffin pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the chickpea flour, water, yeast, oil, salt and pepper until blended and smooth. Add the cauliflower, stirring until combined.
  3. Divide the cauliflower mixture (including all of the batter) evenly between the prepared mini muffin cups.

Storage: Store the cooled mini bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or the freezer for up to 3 months.

Tip: No nutritional yeast? No problem. You can leave it out. You can stick with salt and pepper as your seasonings, or add some herbs or spices instead.
