Vegan Crispy Baked Cauliflower Recipe | Movie Snacks!

October 8, 2019


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.

  1. I'm going to have to try these in my airfryer! Not sure where I'm going to find the rice flour though (I'm on an island). Anyhow they look really yummy.

  2. I love baked cauliflower! <3 They are great in "steaks" lol. This is like little popcorns. Something else to sneak into the theaters! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. black pepper and hot oil sauce everywhere, but then it would not be healthy anymore:(

    nice channel, will try some of your tofu recipes.

  4. I've been making the wonderful Buffalo-style cauliflower bites from Will at Potato Strong for a couple of weeks, and am all hot-sauced out and need a break–these look like just the variation I was looking for.ย  Thanks for posting : )

  5. Yum. Baked cauliflower is surprisingly good. I did a cauliflower bites recipe video a while back and people went insane for them! I also add breadcrumbs for crispiness as well as bbq/hot sauce. Just had them last night along with carrot sticks and celery and my ranch dip. So good!

  6. I'm actually not a huge cauliflower fan, but that is only when they're cooked and too soft for my taste
    … but crispy sounds quite nice, probably I will give them a try (I'm not yet sure how to season it but it's gonna be spicey :D)
    thanks for changing my opinion on cauliflower btw

  7. I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!! I missed asian food SO MUCH since going vegan and I've tried countless times to try to turn asian recipes into vegan recipes but I always felt they were a bit off. YOU ARE A LIFE SAVER! Please continue making videos <3 We asian vegans appreciate you xoxo

  9. I LOVE cauliflower. Its so versitle!ย 

    I'll probably just make an array of sauces. With all of your snack ideas I am planning on making a smorgasbord and inviting all of my friends over for a movie night!!

  10. Oh god, I have to make these! They look awesome.

    Also! At the end of the video, your link to the Honey Garlic sauce takes you to the Apple Honey video instead! Just a heads up!ย 

  11. Hey Mary this is a wonderful recipe for snacking! I was actually doing Will's buffalo wings recipe just now but firstly they were not as crispy as I thought it would be perhaps I didn't dry them enough after rinsing them from the package. Any thoughts on how to make them super crispy? Keep them coming!!

  12. I'm making these again right now! Watch me on snapchat if you want to take a peek: marystestkitchn <- my regular username is too long so leave out the second "e" ๐Ÿ™‚

    I just recently came across your channel, You definitely earned yourself a subscriber! And i love that all your recipes are vegan friendly!

  14. I've just made them. OMG! These are delicious and crunchy! Turns out, I HAD to eat them all (=half of a big cauliflower!!). No regrets here! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. I knew that youโ€™d have a recipe for baked cauliflower bites.๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ Iโ€™m going use cornstarch and add a little panko for a little extra crunch. Iโ€™ll report back if it doesnโ€™t work out. Iโ€™m going to add a little curry to the rest of my butternut squash soup and serve these with it. I think it will be a tasty and filling combo.
