These Cauliflower Bites are crispy, crunchy and tasty snacks dipped in a sweet and spicy honey sriracha sauce. They’ll turn you into a cauliflower lover!
You’d think by now I would stop freaking out over how quickly each month is going by, but HOW is it about to be October? Kind of crazy but the weather has been wonderful lately so I’m absolutely enjoying the change. I wanted to switch things up with a recipe you could definitely make for fall if you wanted, but wasn’t necessary fall themed: Cauliflower Bites in Honey Sriracha Sauce. Here’s the thing: I’m in love with cauliflower bites and cauliflower itself. Cauliflower is so versatile and you can use cauliflower in anything and it comes out beautifully. This is another one of those meatless recipes that will have the meat lovers come-a-running.
I made these bites over on Julie’s Eats & Treats a few months ago, and they were well received so I thought I would share them here too. Flashback to when I made Cauliflower Wings (and thank you Huffington Post for showing them so much love!) and when my revolution began. Flash forward to not that long ago making this beauty into a pizza casserole and loving it so much. It captures any flavours blended with it and allows them to be highlighted while maintaining it’s own flavour.
These cauliflower bites are definitely my favorite cauliflower recipe so far, beyond all of the others, which says a lot. The almond milk coating provides a lighter battering process than egg and milk, but works just as well. The gluten free breadcrumbs create a crunchy exterior and the honey Sriracha sauce creates such a delicious and spicy flavour! They get incredibly soft on the inside and are pretty reminiscent of nuggets, just twenty times better.
I would have to say the sauce was my favourite part, and feel free to up your sriracha or lower it – I put it at a level that I thought everyone could enjoy it all. If you removed majority of the Sriracha these would be great for kids also. If you’re up to it, pour it slowly over the cauliflower bites *see below* right before eating to increase your pending enjoyment.
You can use arrowroot starch instead of cornstarch. You can make this vegan by using maple syrup instead.
