BBQ Beer Battered Cauliflower Nuggets

Switching up the average weeknight with these crispy BBQ beer battered cauliflower nuggets using our Brixton Brewery x Oddbox Pale Ale made from rescued citrus.


  • No self raising flour? Use plain flour and 1 tsp baking powder instead.
  • Didn't get your hands on the Brixton X Oddbox beer? Try using any other beer (we'd recommend a fruity pale ale like our collab)

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Total time: 30 minutes

Servings: 2


1 Cauliflower

1 Brixton x Oddbox Beer (330 ml)

200 g Self raising flour

1 tsp Smoked paprika

1 tsp Onion powder

1 tsp Garlic powder

1 tsp Salt

Vegetable oil (for cooking)

bbq sauce (for serving )


  1. Cut the cauliflower into small florets. Set aside.
  2. Do not discard the cauliflower leaves, place them in a baking dish, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake at 180 C/160c gaz/4 gas mark, for 15 minutes, or until lightly charred.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the flour, smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder and salt. Add the beer, mixing until just combined. Add the cauliflower and toss well to evenly coat all the florets.
  4. Heat about 5 cm of neutral oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Fry the cauliflower in batches for 4-5 minutes or until golden and crisp on all sides. Remove and drain on a wire rack. This will keep the cauliflower crisp.
  5. Serve the nuggets and cauliflower leaves drizzled or dipped with your favourite BBQ sauce. Enjoy!

How to store

The nuggets are best eaten straight away, but you can reheat leftovers in the oven until crisp again.
