Bang-Bang Broccoli

Inspired by a Chinese favourite we love our sticky yet crunchy Bang-Bang Broccoli recipe. You can make it in minutes and is perfect with rice or noodles for a Saturday night fake-away. 

Ingredients: 

  • 1 medium head of broccoli 
  • 100ml aquafaba (eg OGGS® Egg Alternative Aquafaba) 
  • 70g plain flour 
  • 40g cornflour 
  • 2 tbsp any plant milk 
  • 2 tbsp chilli sauce of your choice 
  • 1tbsp garlic powder/crushed garlic (optional) 
  • A squeeze of juicy lemon 
  • Salt and pepper 
  • 2 tbsp breadcrumbs (optional) 
  • 100ml sunflower or vegetable oil, for frying   

Sticky sauce

  • 50ml aquafaba (eg OGGS® Egg Alternative Aquafaba) 
  • 1tbsp chilli sauce of your choice 
  • 1tbsp agave nectar (our favourite honey replacement) or honey 
  • Handful of chives, finely chopped 
  • Handful of peanuts, roughly chopped 

Method: 

  1. Break your broccoli into small florets. 
  2. Pour your aquafaba into a clean bowl and whisk with an electric hand whisk until it forms stiff peaks and doesn’t shift in the bowl. This will take roughly 3 minutes of whisking on a high speed. 
  3. Add the flour, cornflour, milk, chilli sauce, garlic, lemon, a pinch of salt and pepper into the whisked aquafaba and gently fold everything together. The aquafaba will deflate slightly, but don’t worry.  
  4. Start heating up the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat, until it begins to simmer and sizzle. 
  5. Pop the florets into the batter and stir them with a big spoon, to ensure they’re completely coated. 
  6. Next, gently lower the coated broccoli into the piping hot oil and sprinkle the breadcrumbs on top as they cook. Turn them every two minutes to make sure each side is golden. 
  7. After about 6-7 minutes of frying and you’re happy with how crispy they are, place them onto a piece of kitchen roll to soak up any excess oil. 
  8. Now for the sticky sauce. Combine all the liquid ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Spoon this over the top to glaze, while the bang-bang broccoli is still warm. Sprinkle over the chives and peanuts to finish.
