Prep the Cauliflower

a) Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

b) Halve any large cauliflower florets. Pop the florets into a mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the grated hard Italian style cheese and half the mayonnaise. Make sure the florets are well coated. 

c) In a small bowl, mix the breadcrumbs with half the Central American style spice mix (add less if you'd prefer things milder). Stir in the oil and salt for the breadcrumbs (see pantry for both amounts). TIP: Keep the remaining Central American spice mix for another recipe.

d) Add the crumbs to the florets and toss to coat evenly.

Bake your Nuggets

a) Pop the coated florets onto a lined baking tray and spread them out in a single layer. Discard any crumbs left in the bowl.

b) When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden and crispy, 20-25 mins.

c) Meanwhile, combine the remaining mayo in a small bowl with the chipotle paste (add less if you'd prefer things milder).

Dip, Dip, Hooray

a) Once roasted, pop the cauliflower nuggets onto a sharing dish and season with salt.

b) Serve the chipotle mayo alongside for dipping.
