I’ve always loved cauliflower.

I can eat it raw in salads, in soups and also roasted. I usually just season it with salt and pepper, add some olive oil and roast it in the oven. I do believe that roasting cauliflower totally transforms its taste and flavor, making it more nutty and even more delicate.

As much as I like broccoli, I enjoy cauliflower even more.

Today I decided to spice it up a little with some Sriracha.

I can eat a lot of spicy food, but Sriracha is my all time favorite hot sauce. Its rich flavor is great in marinades, over eggs or as an addition in other sauces. In a combination with cauliflower, it gave it a nice spicy kick, since it absorbed flavor very well.

And if you haven’t noticed, I always try to lighten my dishes and these cauliflower bites aren’t breaded. Honestly, I like them better this way.

This roasted cauliflower also make a great snack/ side dish to people, who follow a gluten free diet or are vegan.

Used coconut oil, because I love to over vegetables. Looked at some asian recipes (since I believe Sriracha is Thai) and decided to use some soy sauce, vinegar and black pepper for the sauce. Then for extra freshness, after roasting I added some lime juice and cilantro (totally optional).

Of course, I could have made a dipping sauce of some kind. But this time I’m leaving this up to you. The  Asian inspired flavors are just perfect to me and I did not need anything, but some extra Sriracha.
