Spicy Cauliflower

It’s football season, which means the beer fridge is full and all the food has a little extra kick to it.

Recently I purchased the new 21 Day Fix cookbook, Fixate.  It’s an amazing cookbook built around the program 21 Day Fix.  It includes Paleo, Vegan, Gluten Free and Vegetarian recipes.  As well as cocktails!  The 21 Day Fix is all about creating a healthy lifestyle and we understand splurges are sometimes included with our lifestyle.  We just have to make them as healthy as we can.

I saw this recipe and knew I needed to give it a go.  These Spicy Cauliflower Bites were a big hit all around.

Spicy Cauliflower

Ingredients:
1 head of cauliflower (broken or chopped into florets)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 c hot pepper sauce (we use Hooter’s 3 mile.  It’s paleo baby!)
1/3 rice vinegar
2 tsp ground chili powder
1/4 tsp ground smoked paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp honey
2 Tbsp grass-fed butter
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350.
Place cauliflower on baking sheet and and season with 1/4 tsp sea salt.
Bake for 20 minutes or until tender-crisp.
While cauliflower is baking, combine the hot sauce and rice vinegar.  Whisk until combined.
Add chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, honey, Worcestershire sauce, butter and remaining sea salt.  Whisk to blend.
Heat hot sauce mixture over medium heat; stirring frequently for 10 minutes or until thickened.  Set aside.
Remove cauliflower from the over and mix the hot sauce mixture and the cauliflower in a bowl.
Return the cauliflower to the cooking sheet and bake and additional 5 minutes.
Serve hot.

And there ya go!  Spiciness.
