Hi guys, These crispy little bites are remarkably..well…crispy
for baked cauliflower. Even if you’re not a cauliflower fan, I urge you to give them
a try. Even if you don’t care that they are packed with Vitamin C, K and folate. Lightly
seasoned with a bit of crunch, they make awesome snacks…perhaps for your next AT-home movie
night? First, preheat your oven to 450 degrees Farenheit
or 232 Celsius. Then, cut up your cauliflower into little
bite sized pieces. I have a huge head here so we’re only using half today, about one
pound. I like to make the pieces fairly small but
not too small, maybe just a couple inches in length as this will help keep the bake
time low. Snack sized, like the size of a puffy cheeto. Now, combine some rice flour and water in
a large mixing bowl. Use white or brown rice flour, it’s up to you. Then add your seasonings.
I’m using white pepper, salt, onion powder, garlic powder and a couple tablespoons of
nutritional yeast. Whisk that all together until it’s smooth
with no lumps. Add your cauliflower pieces and mix really
well until each piece is well coated. Line a couple baking sheets with parchment
paper for easily cleanup afterwards. Dump half of the cauliflower out on each of
them and spread out the pieces so they don’t touch each other too much. IF they get too
chummy they’ll come out gummy…well not really, they just won’t crisp up as nicely. Bake these in your preheated oven for 10 minutes.
After ten minutes, take the trays out, mix them around and put them back in, putting
the tray that was on the top rack on the bottom rack and vice versa for even cooking. Bake them for another 10 minutes or until
the largest pieces are cooked through and crispy. How can you tell? Taste test. You can have them like these; fresh out of
the oven is best. But you can take these to the next level by tossing them in your favourite
sweet or spicy sauce and roasting them again. I used my vegan honey garlic sesame sauce,
just a few tablespoons, gave them a toss, then put them back in the oven to roast for
15 more minutes. And now we have honey garlic cauliflower bites.
They do soften a little bit but still maintain their crispy edges. How would you dress up these crispy baked
cauliflower bites? Let me know in the comments below. Now if you’re in a more indulgent mood, you
can use the other half of your giant cauliflower to make these deep-fried beer-battered Cauliflower
bites like I did. Thank you so much for watching this video.
