Spicy Sriracha Cauliflower Bites
Cauliflower is having a moment. [so popular]. It’s in pizza crusts. It’s in smoothies. [eureka!] It’s even morphed into lil bitty cauli-crumbles. It’s everywhere. And I’m not mad about it. I’ve written many posts about my coconut-cinnamon cauli addiction. Ah, it’s a slam dunk. And although I’m a gal who loves routine - especially when it comes to meal prep - I felt like it was time to try something new. Step outta the box, beezy.
So this brings me to… drumroll, please … [Spicy Sriracha Cauliflower Bites].
Uhh huh, it's gettin' hot in here. hot blazin’ beezy-bee.
The recipe is super simps and uber tasty.
- Cauliflower. duh. [the amount depends on how much you want to make, but I’d say I used about 1 medium cauliflower]
- Frank's Red Hot Sauce
- Coconut oil [the spray from TJs]
- Garlic Sriracha seasoning
- OPA tzatziki ranch geek yogurt dressing
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees
- Line a baking pan with parchment paper
- Cut cauliflower into bite-sized floret pieces and place on the pan
- Spray cauliflower pieces with coconut oil
- Add an even shimmy shake of the Frank's Red Hot Sauce and a dusting of the garlic Sriracha seasoning over the cauli*
- Use your hands to mix it all together and ensure each cauli piece is coated
- Bake for 20-25 minutes
*Alternatively you could put the cauli pieces into a large ziploc bag and add about 1/2 cup of the Franks to get even MORE spicy flava flav; however, I didn’t want to make these TOO spicy so I opted to just leave the cauli on the pan and add a lil hot sauce. You do you!
When it's golden brown and looking slightly crispy, you're good to remove it from the oven!
I love to pair the finished cauli bites with this OPA tzatziki ranch greek yogurt dressing. NOM. Have you tried it? I just discovered this brand at my grocery store and I can’t believe I’ve been living under a rock for SO long. It’s delicious and because it’s made with yogurt, it’s a healthier option within the dressing category.
You can literally eat the bites by dipping them into the tzatziki dressing. So good. They also work nicely in salads. Add some baby spinach and arugula to a bowl, pop in some crock pot chicken, add the cauli bites and mix in the tzatziki dressing. Perfecto! enjoy :)
