Spicy Baked Cauliflower Bites

Spencer (my lovely boyfriend), cooked dinner for me. And yes, he’s talented. He has as much culinary artistry as me, and anytime he is willing to show it off – I jump at being the taste tester. There is just nothing quite like having someone else cook you dinner, especially when its Cauliflower bites. There are plenty of recipes of these surfacing online, and the one he altered was my favourite.

Also, when it comes to eating healthy, Cauliflower is where it is at. One serving contains over half the calcium an individual needs in a day, and cauliflower is loaded with other amazing nutrients including; Vitamin K (Great for your heart, PMS, Brain Function) Protein; Thiamin Riboflaven Niacin (Vitamin B – 1 through 3, amazing and essential for the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats), Magnesium, Phosphorus, Vitamin B6, Folate (Vitamin B9) Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5; this is an extremely good supplement to take for people with acne problems), Potassium, and Iron (Manganese). In other words Cauliflower is an amazing vegetable and the best part is it can be grown in your backyard!

Preheat your oven to 450F.

Cut a head of cauliflower into florets.

 

Make a batter combining the following ingredients:

3 tbsp hot sauce (I use Franks buffalo sauce)

1 tsp black pepper

1 tsp cayenne

1.5 tsp garlic powder

1.5 tsp onion powder

3 tbsp flour

½ cup coconut milk (You won’t even taste this)

¼ water

salt

Make your bread coating using:

¾ cup breadcrumbs

2 tbsp flour

1 tsp cayenne

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp garlic

1 tsp paprika

salt


Dip those suckers into the batter, then into the bread coating, lay on a greased baking sheet. Repeat until they’re all battered up. Drizzle any leftover “batter” onto them. Bake for 35 Minutes.

Once you’ve taken these out of the oven, grab a beer and mow down. They’re perfect for an appetizer, or as a companion to other finger foods.
