Servings 4
Total Time 40 mins



  • 1 cauliflower cut into small florets
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp black sesame seeds
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 55 g chickpea flour
  • cup water
  • 100 g buffalo sauce or hot sauce


  • 800 g potatoes cut into chips
  • 90 g cheese grated


  • 125 g lite sour cream
  • 3 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • ¼ tsp dill
  • ¼ tsp mustard powder
  • ½ tsp dried parsley
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 3 Tbsp milk


  • ½ lettuce cut into wedges
  • 2 tomatoes cut into wedges
  • ½ red onion finely diced


  • Before you start, preheat oven to 220°C (or 200°C fan bake).
  • Prep cauliflower. In a large bowl, whisk together garlic powder, sesame seeds, salt and chickpea flour with water measure, until smooth. Add a splash more water, if needed, to reach the consistency of pouring cream. Add cauliflower to bowl and toss well to coat.
  • Transfer cauliflower to a lined oven tray, discarding any batter left in the bowl. Season with salt and bake on upper oven rack for about 30 minutes, until golden.
  • Prep potatoes and toss on a lined oven tray with oil. Season with salt and roast on lower oven rack, for 25-30 minutes, until golden and tender. Prep cheese. When fries have 5 minutes cook time remaining, top with cheese and return to oven to melt.
  • In a small bowl, mix all ranch ingredients together. Prep lettuce, tomato and onion.
  • Once cauliflower has finished cooking, drizzle over buffalo sauce and toss to coat.
  • Serve lettuce topped with tomato and onion. Dollop with ranch and serve fries and cauliflower on the side.

Ary ‘Adzuki’

Ary develops all of the recipes that go into our Bargain Boxes. One of his biggest passions is sharing food and teaching people how to cook, so now that he creates recipes weekly, he literally gets to teach thousands of people new and exciting things! His favourite produce in New Zealand broccoli – it’s crispy and vibrant and he even grows it at home! It’s one of the veggies he never tires of. His biggest food weakness (because we all have one!) is crispy fried chicken that speaks right to his soul when it’s done right – though he’s such a lover of sharing a good meal that he’d prefer to stay in and cook a family meal over going out to eat.
