happy happy weekend everyone! i am so thrilled to bring you my newest savory creation! Vegan Baked Spicy Curry Broccoli is packed with so many wonderful flavors and nutrients. it’s going to become a new favorite of yours, i just know it.
you’re going to need broccoli florets, about 10 ounces to be specific and some other ingredients for both the coating and sauce.
so, i make this absolutely delicious gluten-free curry batter that is jam packed with flavor. then, i bake the broccoli florets in the oven until the coating is slightly crispy.
ooooh and then there’s this delicious sauce with harissa paste, coconut cream, and a few more ingredients that will simply give you the ultimate culinary experience.
when it comes to the batter, you’re going to need the following ingredients!
- gluten free flour
- flax meal
- curry powder
- onion salt
- garlic powder
- avocado oil
- sparkling water
- unsweetened plain almond milk
for the sauce, i made a really simple and yummy harissa based one! you’re going to need just a few ingredients for this flavorful deliciousness.
Alex and i bought harissa paste from Trader Joe’s and it’s sooo good. harissa is a hot chili paste that originated in Tunisia, North Africa and it’s is commonly used as a dip or marinade.
there are other great brands out there and i’ve also tried mina, which is amazing.
in terms of spiciness, i think it’s up there, so i only used one tbsp but you can add an amount according to whatever spiciness level you’re looking for.
i recommend starting with 1/2 tbsp and then adding more depending on how spicy you would like it!
i added some fresh basil to the finished product because it’s just so refreshing and fragrant, so i highly recommend!
this should make about 3 servings, at least that’s what it yielded for us! if you are making a large amount, you can always double the batter amount.
for the broccoli florets, i wanted to make sure there was a thick coating but not too overpowering where you can no longer taste the broccoli.
since i used 10 ounces, almost an entire bag that i bought at Trader Joe’s, I just divided the batter in half and coated 5 ounces of broccoli florets in each.
