Vegan and Gluten-Free Baked Teriyaki Cauliflower

Vegan and Gluten-Free Baked Teriyaki Cauliflower should be on your menu for dinner this weekend! forget the chicken or beef, you won’t miss it at all because this is so flavorful, satisfying and hearty!

Vegan and Gluten-Free Baked Teriyaki Cauliflower is really easy to make, surprisingly!

you just have to cut 1 and 1/2 heads of cauliflower into florets and make a batter to coat the florets in.

the teriyaki sauce cooks within a matter of five minutes, that’s it!

store bought teriyaki sauce and ones that you can order at restaurants are SO GOOD, but they usually are packed with a ton of sugar.

for my teriyaki sauce, i used coconut nectar, which has a lower glycemic index and you only need 1/8 of a cup.

the cauliflower bakes in the oven after it’s coated with batter and has to be flipped at about the 15 minute mark.

then, it will bake for another 17 minutes or so before it’s nice and tender with a hard coating.

next, you can add the baked cauliflower straight to the pan of freshly cooked teriyaki sauce and make sure it’s covered in all of that goodness.

serve with some rice if you would like and you can garnish with sesame seeds, basil, green onions or anything you want really!

this keeps well in the fridge for a day or two and the leftovers tasted amazing the next day! the cauliflower will just be more mushy of course.

here’s everything you need to make Vegan and Gluten-Free Baked Teriyaki Cauliflower


oat flour

arrowroot starch

flax meal

garlic and herb seasoning

sea salt and pepper


liquid aminos

toasted sesame oil

minced garlic

coconut nectar

ground ginger

if you don’t like cauliflower or want to use something else, i highly recommend broccoli or even Brussels sprouts!

you could even do a mixture of all three veggies if you want to.

this is a recipe that will turn veggie skeptics into true believers because it’s just that good.
