I secretly hated your guts for many years. And this recipe has helped open my eyes. Please accept my apology for neglecting you and thinking of you as the most disgusting veggie on a veggie platter.
I L.O.V.E this recipe. The secret is to make sure you break the cauliflower into really small pieces (large pieces of cooked cauliflower are gross). The maple syrup balances out the spiciness from the sriracha, and the sesame oil lends a nice Asian flair.
Sriracha Roasted Cauliflower
Recipe courtesy of my co-worker
• 1 bag of cauliflower or 1 small head of cauliflower
• 2 tsp. sriracha
• 1/2 tsp. maple syrup
• 1/2 tsp. sesame oil
• 2 tsp. garlic powder
• 4 tbsp. avocado oil
• Salt and pepper to taste
1 Preheat oven to 425°
2 Break or cut the cauliflower into small pieces
3 In a bowl add the cauliflower along with all the other ingredients and mix with a spoon. Since the cauliflower absorbs a lot of liquid make sure that there is enough oil so that it does not dry up while roasting.
4 On a parchment lined baking sheet evenly spread out the cauliflower.
5 Bake the cauliflower for 20 minutes. Halfway through roasting be sure to move it around with a spoon to keep it from burning.
Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
