It’s been cold and rainy here, and my iphone says more snow is most likely heading into town this evening. The silver lining? Our fridge is stocked, the wine cart is full (always), and season 3 of House of Cards is calling my name. Crappy weather has its perks!

  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

  2. Cut the cauliflower into bite-sized pieces; transfer to a large bowl; set aside. In a small bowl combine olive oil, sriracha, maple syrup, salt, and pepper. Pour the sriracha mixture over the cauliflower and mix well, making sure the cauliflower is well coated in the sauce.
  3. Spread the cauliflower onto a large baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, stirring once at the half way point. Increase the oven temperature to 475 and bake for another 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve at once.

    AMAZING! I only had 10 oz of fresh cauliflower so I used about 6 oz thinly sliced carrots, too. I also substituted water for most of the oil and just used about a 1 tsp melted coconut oil. Then I sprinkled all of it with 16 whole raw almonds, 1 tsp roasted Saigon cinnamon, 1 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp pink Himalayan salt, and 2 tsp turmeric. I am estimating all of that since I don’t really measure that stuff. The added ALMONDS AND CARROTS were incredible and the cauliflower just soaked up so much flavor! Incredible!!

    I made this and it was great! I was wondering if I made a triple batch and the mashed it like potatoes?
