Spicy Peanut Cauliflower Bites

Spicy peanut cauliflower bites make a delicious low carb and gluten free appetiser or snack.

I see a lot of cauliflower “wings” recipes which slightly disturb me as a vegetarian and a love for cauliflower.  I guess this is because the sauce used is similar to chicken wing dishes? I would rather call them cauliflower bites then wings.

I have used this sauce on chicken too (breast strips, not wings) for the Chief Taster which he enjoyed.  You could take this sauce and cook it on any part of the chicken or a vegetable you wanted.  Call it a wing if you wish! *shudders*.  I loved these and would label them as a snack or starter since there is a tendency to scoff the whole plate in one go (might be just us though..)!

Feel free to play around with the spices..some hotter chilli powder would be a great addition if you like the heat.  Just beware, that these spicy peanut cauliflower bites are highly addictive and it is very hard to only eat a couple.

    Ok you’re my new best friend. My first ever baking experience today: I made the almond/coconut/flax bread. A decent outcome for a first attempt. A bit dense, though. I could only manage one slice for breakfast, and I’m still full five hours later. The sunflower chia bagels weren’t as good. I’ll get there – will take me a little time.

    But this — THIS will be my go-to once-a-week recipe hereon. Looks absolutely divine. Also, don’t have tamari in my pantry so I’ll use some tamarind pulp instead for the umami kick. I need my peanut/peanut butter fix at least once a week, and I know peanuts are not allowed when strictly keto, but I’m not strictly keto and I work out five days a week and I know I’m rambling and this is the answer to all of my no-peanut woes. I just KNOW it’ll taste divine.

    And I know I’m repeating myself, but you’re my new best friend. I do hope our paths will cross someday and I get to break bread with you in person! For the treasure trove that is your blog, I am thankful. Please know you will always have a place at my dinner table xoxox

      These. Were. Phenomenal. Sprinkled some fresh chopped cilantro on top and I was in heaven.

      Psst. Don’t tell anyone, but I ate it all up >:)

        🙂 <3 I'm making a paneer and bell pepper grill with this "marinade" this weekend. And I'll raise a toast to you when I relish them!

      I’d eat a piece of cardboard if it was slathered in this sauce…;)
