You’ve been waiting for the famous gluten free and vegetarian nuggets recipe! A beautiful culinary discovery that will surprise you! And yes, this time these nuggets are made with cauliflower, who would have believed it? I had already tested this recipe when I was in Asia with one of the chefs of a gluten-free restaurant in Bali. To make it even tastier, I adapted it just for you!

For 4 people, you will need:

  • A cauliflower from 700 to 800g
  • 110 g rice
  • ½ onion
  • 3 tablespoons of chickpea flour
  • 2 tablespoons of corn flour
  • 40g of parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp of curry
  • 1 teaspoon of espelette pepper
  • Salt, pepper, flat parsley

STEP 1: The first step is to bleach your cauliflower. To do this, cut it into florets and cook in boiling water for 8 minutes. They will not be completely cooked and this is normal!

STEP 2: Then, in another pot you will have to cook your rice.

STEP 3: Then mix your cauliflower with half an onion and parsley. It is normal that the result is not perfect.


STEP 4: In another bowl, mix together the rice, egg, spices, flour and parmesan. Then mix it all with your cauliflower preparation.

STEP 5: The most important moment: the preparation of the nuggets. To do this, advice from the chef: put cornflour on your work surface, and put some on your hands. Then take some dough and form nuggets. Cover them with cornflour.

STEP 6: Cook them on a hot pan for 5/6 min on each side. Don’t hesitate to use olive oil to make your gluten free and vegetarian nuggets even crispier.

All that’s left to do is to taste them! Good day to all
