This sweet and spicy roasted cauliflower recipe is the perfect oven roasted side dish. Toss it on a sheet pan and it's ready in no time! It's vegan and gluten free, and it's great for adding to meal prep!
I just spent two hours scouring reviews for baby bouncers on Amazon. My eyes ache.
Do you guys even know what kind of features these things come with nowadays? I don't know how I ever made it to adulthood without such luxuries.
Built-in sound systems, relaxing vibration patterns, an assortment of dangling toys to entertain the baby, hands-free bouncing – and none of them come in the color I want.
I have to get this right – it's a gift for my best friend's first baby. My best friend is pregnant. My best friend is having a baby. I still can't believe it.
I don't know the first thing about babies. I've never changed a diaper (Hello, Google? it's me, Jordan.)
like love wine. I say shit and damn and hell sometimes too much. I know she's way more ready for baby H than I am. But it's still so hard for me to picture her as a mother.
I know that's just because I haven't ever seen her in this role before. I know she's going to be amazing.
It's hard to imagine. Because to me – playing house with our American Girl dolls seems like yesterday.
Getting in trouble for swimming in a flooded ditch seems like yesterday. Terrorizing the neighborhood in her go-cart seems like yesterday.
Her moving to Oklahoma seems like yesterday. Church camp. Boyfriends. High school. College. Graduations. Yesterday. Giving my first wedding speech as her Matron of Honor – I know that was just yesterday. I swear it was.
But here we are. Coincidentally, today is her birthday. And the next day is my birthday.
It's been so long since we celebrated together, even though we were born one day apart. Now, she's a couple of weeks away from bringing a piece of her into the world. And soon, I'll get to meet meet the magical little person she's been busy creating.
How lucky am I? I get to watch my best friend change and grow and learn. And she'll teach me things I didn't realize I needed to know.
She's going first. She's paving this road. And she's so got this. She's going to be so good at this. When Baby H comes into the world, she will be surrounded with love and gratitude. She will be supported. She will be encouraged. She will be raised by two of the best people I've ever known.
I was having a hard time deciding what recipe to share before we leave to go camping over the weekend. But then I started thinking of the soon-to-be new parents and how pressed-for-time they will be.
This recipe is a game-changer and a life-saver. (Too many hyphens in one sentence? Nah.)
This sweet and spicy cauliflower is one of those recipes you can keep on hand, in the back of your mind.
When you see cauliflower on sale. When you have cauliflower that's on the verge of going bad. Or when you have a mixture of random vegetables in the fridge and you need a solution right now – this is the kind of recipe that saves your ass at hangry dinnertime.
We cooked this recipe on a heavy duty baking sheet lined with parchment – we order ours from Amazon! We've tried using aluminum foil before and it just doesn't seem to cook as well.

Sweet and Spicy Baked Cauliflower
- Total Time: 35 minutes
- Yield: 4 1x
Keep it simple with this oven-roasted side dish. Cauliflower florets are tossed in an irresistible sweet and spicy marinade and baked until tender.
- 4 cups cauliflower florets
- 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
- 2 Tablespoon sriracha
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- ½ Tablespoon tamari or soy sauce
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- Preheat oven to 400º. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl (or a Ziplock bag) combine cauliflower and other ingredients – maple syrup, sriracha, olive oil, tamari, and pepper. Mix until the cauliflower is well coated.
- Pour the cauliflower onto the baking sheet and place in the oven. Be sure to give the cauliflower "room to breathe." If the baking sheet is over-crowded, the cauliflower will "steam" and it won't cook right. If you need to, divide it between 2 baking sheets.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until cauliflower is tender.
I recommend serving this over a bed of steaming quinoa or rice.
You can easily incorporate other vegetables with or instead of cauliflower.

Sooo random but I didn't have sriracha or soy sauce or maple syrup so instead i used franks red hot, worcheshire and honey. tastes like a sweet chili sauce it was great.
That's actually a genius solution! I'm so glad it worked out for you.
I made this dish for a New Year's Eve party, and everyone LOVED it! I didn't have Sriracha, so I used Chohula hot sauce, and it was plenty spicy. I also added a tsp of garlic powder and sprinkled on some panko for crunch. I'm making another batch today. Absolutely delicious.
Fantastic! I'm so glad this was a hit at your NYE party! Panko is a brilliant addition. :)

Did not have soy sauce, dropped oil to 1 tbsp and the recipe still rocks. I‘m loving my introduction to this f-bomb dropping chef and can’t wait to try more!
Right on! I'm so glad you liked the recipe!
I just wanted a recipe, not a rambling story of childhood and babies!
You didn't have to read the post. The recipe is always at the bottom of the page on any food blog. I do appreciate you clicking through and giving me a page view, as well as taking the time to comment. However, you can go fuck yourself.
The sad thing is that there are people like you out there who think this is how you should talk to people. Get a life!
Holy goodness! I love sweet and spicy and this is so good!! I put mine in the air fryer and wow....
Thanks for the delicious and easy recipe.
Omg! Genius! Would you mind sharing how you cooked them in the air fryer? I'd love to test it out and include that as a cooking option.
Does this recipe work when served cold? I have a big event coming up and would need to make this several hours early for a buffet style meal. Thanks!
I wouldn't recommend serving it cold. I've been known to eat it out of the fridge but it's definitely better hot!
Waaaaaay too spicy. Far too much Sriracha. I'd do half as much. And I normally like spicy things but this is ridiculous sad to have wasted all this cauliflower. My 15 month old definitely cannot eat this ridiculously spicy thing.
I'm sorry to hear that you didn't like this! I'm a huge fan of spice, but to each their own. :)
I wanted to give this a go before serving it to friends. so I cut the recipe in half and used half of a cauliflower. I don't like really spicy food, but this is a delicious sauce and the cauliflower tempers the spiciness of the sriracha. I found 30 minutes was too long for the size of my florets and they were cooked after 20 minutes. Also, I didn't turn over the cauliflower mid-point like I usually do when roasting veggies so the bottom parts were pretty caramelized but still tasted great! Thanks for a quick, easy and tasty recipe for a sauce I'll use on a lot of different veggies!
Thank you so much for taking the time to give your feedback! I love this sauce on so many different veggies. :)
Made this with Brussels sprouts...yummm!!!
Oooooh yum! I love roasted brussels sprouts!
I am not at all exaggerating when I say I could eat this entire thing and certainly suggest doubling the recipe if you plan to have more than two people eating the heaping portions we devour! My husband and I absolutely love this! A little spicy for our 3-year-old kiddo, but you could certainly tone down the amount of sriracha if you're in the same boat of not loving heat. Hubby and I do, so no adjustments for us. Thank you for a new "go-to" for cauliflower! Delicious!!
Haha! I love this comment so much! So glad you guys enjoy this recipe. You can definitely tone down the heat accordingly for littles. Thanks for the feedback!
Oh MY!! This is soooo good!! Just the right amount of sweet to balance the heat! We LOVED it
Booyah! I know this recipe is a bit spicy for some, but we love the balance! Thanks for your feedback!
So good. I'm going to double it next time!
Good thinking! I usually make a double batch as well. :)
I’ve made this so many times now over the past year ... love it, and so does my family!
Awesome! I'm so glad that you all enjoy this recipe!
We roast vegetables and cauliflower regularly, but with this recipe you get great flavor. It was super easy too. Thank you for a great and simple dish.
Awesome! I'm so glad you're a fan of this cauliflower! :)
My family is making this every week. So easy. So yummy. We do two large heads of cauliflower and are always hopeful for left overs to enjoy the next day. Never happens. Three of us devour it in one sitting. |-)
Love this! I'm so glad you and your family enjoy this recipe!
I doubled the sauce except for the sriracha.
Next time, I will double the sauce and half the original amount of the sriracha.
Nonetheless a delicious dish.
We will be eating the entire head of cauliflower for dinner tonight!
Yummmmmm! I'm so glad you enjoyed!
Just made this for dinner with my Dad and it was delicious! Just the two of us accidentally polished off a whole head of cauliflower without even realizing it, it was so good. Thanks for the recipe!
That's freaking awesome! I'm so glad you guys enjoyed it so much – thanks for the feedback!
Delicious! Thanks for the recipe. I make this weekly as it’s a great side dish for so many meals.
Fantastic! I'm so glad you like this cauliflower recipe. :)
Made this today substitution the sriracha with another hot sauce. Omitted the black pepper. Flavor profile was spot on, but I would definitely change the process. Perhaps baking in a Pyrex dish for the first 20-25 minutes and then transferring to a sheet pan for 5-10 minutes.
My results were on the dry side and would’ve preferred a little something saucier.
Thanks for the feedback! I wonder what kind of effect the hot sauce substitution on the end result... With this recipe, the cauliflower is supposed to get a bit of crunch/caramelization in the process. The cauliflower absorbs most of the marinade so it's definitely not a "saucy" end result. Hope this helps!
This is my new favorite way to eat cauliflower. Great recipe!
Yay! Thank you for the feedback! :)
Love this recipe, family devoured it. Just perfect as written
Awesome! I'm so glad you all liked it. Thanks for the feedback!
What could you use instead of maple syrup
You can use honey or agave instead!
This is my fifth time making this recipe! I forgot to preheat my oven, and I’m eating it raw while the oven heats haha it’s so good!!!! I add a sprinkle of garlic salt :)
Ha! If it's good before it's even cooked, you know it's a win!
This never made it to a plate, we ate the whole cauliflower off the baking sheet. I’ve never loved cauliflower but holy cow I could eat this at every meal. The spicy balances the sweet very well! I’m curious to try it with different sriracha sauces (I used Blue Agave Sriracha by YellowBird Sauce). This will be a staple in my recipe book. Thank you!
Ha! That's how you know it's good! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. :) I've only tried this with regular Huy Fong sriracha, but I'm sure other brands would work.
Oh wow! This recipe is stellar! I served it over rice with baked salmon. Absolutely delicious....my husband loved it too. I will definitely continue to make this. Thank you
Fantastic! I'm so glad that you guys enjoyed the cauliflower! :)
What a delicious way to eat cauliflower! I prepared this last night and it was so good. My husband absolutely loved it, as did I. I'll be making this again.
Awesome! Sounds like it was a hit – I'm glad you guys enjoyed!
This was very Good if your looking to do something different with cauliflower.
I'm glad you liked it! Thank you for commenting :)
Just made this but with smoked chipotle hot sauce, I think I needed a bit more maple syrup. Having it with salmon, buttered Italian herbed mash potatoes. Will try again with siracchi.
That chipotle hot sauce sounds amazing! I hope you enjoyed. :)
My non-vegetable-praising spouse really liked these. I did essentially exactly the recipe as printed. I will definitely make these again. Thank you.
Fantastic! So glad you both enjoyed! :)
This was so delicious!!!! I used it on some broccoli also.
Awesome! I love using it for all kinds of veggies. :)
Made the his tonight and added broccoli everyone’s loved it, will be making it again.
Awesome! I love adding broccoli to this recipe – other veggies are awesome too!
So good. I marinated overnight and then drained before cooking. Sprinkled Parmesan on them before baking. Delish and a new favourite.
Oh good idea on the marinating!
Mama to SIX
Yes! Glad you loved it!
I hated cauliflower before this recipe.
That's freaking awesome! So glad you like it now. :)
Absolutely loved this recipe! I'm making it for the second time tonight.
Awesome! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. The sauce works great for so many veggies!
Michael j reynolds
Just finished eating this very simple recipe,and I have to say this is one the best recipes I have ever made.the time was off by 5 minutes because of me.cant Wite to make this again.thank you Gd job
Awesome! I'm so glad you enjoyed this recipe! :)
Fab!! Although next time I'll not add the marinade to the roasting pan, it was roasted but a bit 'soft'. And I used golden syrup as I didn't have maple syrup. I also used extra hot sauce as well as sriracha.
Your extra liquids may have caused the cauliflower to be soft! Next time, try decreasing the overall amount of "wet" ingredients to keep it from getting soggy. :)
Absolutely amazing! Just enough heat and just enough sweet! My husband and kids loved it and have requested that I make it again and again! Thank you!
That's so awesome! I'm thrilled to hear that you all loved it. :) <3
Wow, Looks delish!! Another one to add to my recipe to do list! Thanks for the step by step!
Enjoy! You're welcome!
I have a new favorite side dish! My fairly picky boyfriend even raved about it. Thank you! It was easy and delicious.
Yay!! I'm so glad you guys both enjoyed it!
If you add soy sauce it is not gluten free. My sister loved it but got sick after eating. Last time I made it minus the soy sauce & it was still yummy.
Correct – soy sauce is not gluten free. But, tamari is!
So yummy! I have made this weekly for about one month; perfect as written!,
Ahhh yay! I'm so glad you here this!
Delicious and so easy. We added more sitacha for our taste. Love it!
Right on! I'm glad you enjoyed!
0mg .... love it ! Easy to add your own spices to change it if you like. I used foil to line the pan.
It's definitely a versatile recipe! Glad you enjoyed!
Great flavor! Spicy sweet just like it says. Everyone loved them!
Will make again for sure!
Fantastic! I'm glad you all enjoyed!
I cooked this last night and it was received well. I didn’t have sriracha so I substituted it with chipotle sauce. The result was yummy. Thanks
Yummy! I love chipotle too. Glad you enjoyed!
I've made this 2x, 1st with olive oil and the 2nd with avocado oil, both turned out very good put both over black quinoa-yummy!
Awesome! I'm so glad you liked it. :)
It was just okay. I was hoping for more flavor. All I could taste was siracha. I was also hoping that the maple syrup would carmelize more, but that could have been my oven. We ate it, but it's not a recipe worth saving.
I'm sorry to hear that you didn't like this recipe! You could certainly decrease the sriracha if it was too overpowering. I find that the maple syrup caramelizes wonderfully!
My sauce burnt terribly and ruin d th cauliflower - any thoughts. I want to try it again because the flavors sound awesome
Hmmm... I've never had that problem before. But, all ovens are different! I would suggest decreasing the oven temperature by 25º and see if that helps.
I really want to try this. I'll put it on rotation. It might not be a bad idea to get a reliable oven thermometer for people having trouble with it not cooking right. Even new ovens sometimes aren't calibrated right, and old ovens are often wrong. It will help with all of your cooking and baking.
Fact! I definitely recommend using a thermometer!
Can you sub something for the maple syrup and if so what do you suggest? Dont want to have to buy it just for this.
You could sub honey instead!
Love this dish, made it several times. I backed down a bit on the heat because we like it medium.
It can be a little on the spicy side! Glad you found your perfect heat. ;)
It's a hit and so easy, going to try on the grill instead of heating up the kitchen using the oven:)
Great idea! We've grilled this before in a foil pan and it works great!
Was very delicious, I will be making this alot
Awesome! So glad you liked it! :D
This is the third time in two weeks I'm preparing this cauliflower recipe...for different people each time. My kids enjoyed it so much that I had to prepare something else for dinner with my husband.
Yay! I love hearing that. So glad you guys enjoyed!
Well this is my new favorite way to eat cauliflower! Sooo good! Thank you!
Awesome! I love hearing that! :)
This is my new favourite for roasted veggies! I used this sauce on everything - chicken, all my other roasted veggies, over rice... seriously, everything! I did find a little too much heat with the full amount of siracha, so I used 1/2 sweet chili sauce and 1/2 siracha. I also cut back on the olive oil just so it was a thicker sauce over the cauliflower. Seriously delicious and addictive!
Hi Brittany! Thanks so much for the feedback – I'm so glad you liked this recipe. I agree... it's good on everything!
OMG! So yummy! On Weight Watchers and needed something different to do with cauliflower and this was definitely a hit. Can't wait to try with other veggies. Daughter is vegan and know she will love this as a steak. Used chili garlic sauce instead of the siracha and sugar free maple syrup. Might try as a marinade for chicken, salmon, etc. Can't go wrong. THANKS!
Hi Debbie! I'm glad you liked this recipe – it's so GOOD! I bet your daughter will love it too! Thank you for the feedback. :)
Used only 1 tbsp. Of saracha and it was delicious.
Good to know! I'm so glad you liked it!
Loved it! Used only 1 Tbsp. Of Siracha. Plenty spicy. Would definitely make it again.
Awesome! So glad you enjoyed!
Just made this - substituted the sriracha with harissa and WOWSA!
Oooooh.... good idea!
I’ve made this recipe twice and both times it was great! Thank you!
Yay! Sounds like it's a hit! :) Thanks for letting me know.
This is such a wonderful dish. I made it last night and the family loved it!
georgie @ georgieeats
This honestly look incredible! Right up my street - have pinned it so I can make it soon!! Thanks so much for the recipe :) x
Yay! Let me know what you think when you try it!
Great recipe. Always looking for a way to spice up a vegetable. Excellent side dish. I heated the leftovers a couple days later for a snack. No sriracha. I used Red hot sauce.
My family has always balked at cauliflower - too bland. i fixed this and they loved it. i'm not a big fan of sriracha (too much heat) so my go-to sub for that is an Asian sweet chili sauce - and once again, it worked beautifully in this dish. a little bite of heat, but mostly mild and flavorful. Thank you for a great veggie dish to add to my rotation.
Yay! I'm so glad everyone liked the cauliflower! Good idea to use the sweet chili sauce... I bet that was delicious!
Very good! I will probably use a little less siracha next time so my whole family will enjoy it, but I loved it!
Ah! The sriracha definitely isn't for everyone. I'm glad it was enjoyed though!
This recipe is the best, my family loves it. I add fresh green beans with this mix too!
Oh good thinking! So glad you guys like it. :)
I tried this with a cabbage steak and it was soooo good... I just cut a thick slice of cabbage and drizzled this on top and baked until tender...
Ohhhhh I like your innovation! That sounds so good!
I used to make something similar to this on the BBQ in foil packets for summer grilling...I have no idea why I never thought of just doing it in the oven lol. I did tweak it a bit - personally I can't stand sriracha (even the smell makes me gag for some reason) so after reading the comments I subbed balsamic instead. And because we have a gluten free family member now I used tamari sauce instead of soy. This was so simple to just toss together. And of course I had to taste test to make sure it would be up to Easter dinner quality lol. It's delicious! Thanks :)
Even the fussiest eater will like this!
I made it last night and it was absolutely delicious. Thanks for sharing.
Awesome! So glad you enjoyed!
THis is a wonderful dish I had it with codfish cakes n buffalo wings can I do broccoli the same way
Yes, broccoli can be made the same way. It tends to cook slightly quicker than cauliflower, so just keep an eye on it!
Love, love love this recipe, I have made it twice so far. So delicious! I reduced the sauce by half since it’s just two of us for dinner. Did not think about using it on other vegetables or meat, but will give it a try. I did reduce the oven temp to 400 and time to 20 minutes
Ah! I love hearing that. So glad you're a fan of this recipe! :D
Made Sweet and Spicy Baked Cauliflower Jan 4, 2018. I like spicy food but did not have Sriracha in my pantry. I Googled a substitute and was given Balsamic Vinegar. I did have this. I used low-sodium soy sauce. I set a timer for 30 mins but smelled the start of burning at 25 so went ahead and pulled it out. The tips of the soft stalks were starting to burn. The veg was very good. I will make it again. Next time I will cut the stalks off mixing them with the florets instead. I will say the raw cauliflower with the marinade was also very tasty too. Thank you Jordan and Clark for this recipe!
Hi Susan! Thanks for the feedback – I'm glad you enjoyed the recipe. Thanks for letting us know about the substitutions you made! I always like to hear what people try. :)
I was out of sriracha so I used cranberry chili sauce instead. Great recipe! Now Im gonna leave it in the oven for a while on 200, to see if i can get it to dehydrate, and get crunchy....
Vivian, just wondering if that worked for you? I *love* roasted vegetables with some crispiness to them.
Interesting... cranberry chili sauce sounds SO good.
Delicious, yet spicy like HELL (((: Even for a little fire eater (:
Actually, because I live in Israel, I used date syrup instead of maple and Yemenite harisa instead of sriracha.
Now I see I should've used at least 4 times less of that spicy end of my mouth (:
Thank you, anyway (:
Ha! So sorry this was too spicy for your tastes! I have never tried anything like Yemenite harisa but now I want to! That sounds amazing. <3
Can you use frozen cauliflower. Would I defrost it in microwave?
I don't recommend using frozen cauliflower. Once it defrosts, it's super wet and it's difficult to get all that moisture out. Fresh cauliflower works best for this because it bakes up much better.
Deeelish! I tried it on broccoli too-threw in some bacon bits just because.........
That's awesome! I'm so glad you enjoyed. :)
These were amazing!!! i had no sriracha so i put the tiniest amount of red chilli powder in as im not too great with reeeeally hot things anyway! ill definitely make this again, my mum loved them and have recommended this recipe to friend:-)
My trainer,a vegan,and an inspiration to me, just sent this recipe. I am most anxious to try this using tofu as she suggested.
Hated veggies my whole life, decided to try a few new roasting recipes and let me say I think I have fallen in love with this flavor combo on cauliflower! Yumm
How do you recommend storing/reheating?
What about adding some cubed firm tofu to the mix?
You could certainly give that a try! As long as it's thoroughly dried, I bet it would crisp up wonderfully.
Delicious just the way it is. Red-blooded, all American, meat-eating, Colorado girl. Why would you ruin ANYTHING by adding tofu? I have 1 vegan friend. Palest, weakest person I know. I tried it with a rare grilled ribeye. Substituted the cauliflower for the potatoes, but please, for God's sake, NEVER leave out the meat!
There... is no meat in this recipe that is being left out. Tofu is fine. It's 2018. Your vegan friend isn't pale because they eat vegetables.
This was great! I used agave instead of maple syrup. This was great on cauliflower, but was a big hit on chicken wings! I'll be using this sauce recipe often.
Awesome – I'm glad it works on wings too! So happy you liked it. :)
ok, chicken wings TOOOOOOOO???? hmmmm, sounds gooood!!!!
This sauce is good on juuuuust about any veggie or meat!
Did you just mix the wings in there? or cook them separately?
I've never tried making wings alongside the cauliflower, but I would assume they would need to be baked for different lengths of time. Try it and report back!
Thanks for sharing. This was delicious!
But if consuming less dairy means I m eating more simple vegan recipes like this Maple-Sriracha Roasted Cauliflower, well cheese, don t let the door hit you on the way out.
***BAMMMM, the DOOR SLAMMED ON YOU!!***
SO SADDD you didn't enjoy but as they say...- "TO EACH HIS OWN, SAID THE OLD LADY WHO KISSED THE COW!!"***** We LOVED IT!! if everybody was the same,we'd all be Clones - that's even scarier say 'Dolly' the sheep!
What? The previous commenter was clearly giving a compliment. P.S. your terrible punctuation makes your comment very difficult to read.
I made this recipe tonight for my family. It was very good and a big hit with everyone. It was a bit spicy but we didn't mind. We will definitely make this again.
Hi Alisa! I'm glad you guys liked this recipe. :) Thanks for your feedback!
1 word to describe this recipe....delicious!! My new favorite way to eat cauliflower!
Linda! So glad you like this cauliflower recipe! It's definitely one of my favorites. :)
We loved the cauliflower recipe! I had to Google what sriracha was, I've never heard of it, I guess you are not from the UK? I had some chilli dipping sauce which I used, it was fine. And I used golden syrup instead of maple syrup which is difficult to find and expensive here. I'll definitely be making new this dish again.
Ah! That's funny. I didn't realize sriracha wasn't a universal thing – it's so popular here in the US! I'm glad you were able to modify and that you liked it!
Sriracha is totally popular in the UK!
hi! what can i use instead of sriracha? im not a big fan of spicy :/ i thought to just cut it out but i dont want the cauliflower to b flavorless :/ and about how much is 4 cups cauliflower? i read online that its around 400 grams? thanks :)
Hi Sylvia –
Instead of sriracha, you could try using barbecue sauce. I've never tried it, but it would certainly be milder in spice. 4 cups of cauliflower was about a whole, medium-sized head of cauliflower. From what I see online, that can range from 400-600 grams. The goal is to make sure all of the cauliflower has a nice, light coating of sauce.
I made this as a side dish for honey mustard baked chicken last night. Absolutely amazing! It was a little spicy for my kid, so I will use a little less sriracha next time.... All in all, definitely going to become a staple in my house!
Hi Kelly! So glad you liked this cauliflower! Pairing it with honey mustard chicken sounds like a flavor explosion. :D Thanks for commenting!
I recently became vegan and this recipe or variations of this recipe have been an absolute life saver! My friends probably want me to shut up about it already but, can't stop, won't stop! Thank you so much for this simple and satisfying dinner!
Hi Christina –
I'm so glad to hear that you love this recipe! It's one of my absolute favorites because you can swap in almost any vegetable! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. :)
Tried these tonight for dinner! Turned out great! Although I accidentally substituted Honey for the Maple Syrup. The taste was still great! Maybe a little more of an asian taste, but still delicious.
Hi Ivy! I'm so glad to hear that you liked the cauliflower! Honey certainly works just fine in place of maple syrup. :) Thanks for sharing!
I'm a huge brussel sprouts' fan! I made this with brussel sprouts (halved )and it was sensational. I used thick sugar beet syrup instead of maple syrup.
Hi Aparna! That's a great idea... I LOVE brussels sprouts. I bet they were delicious in the sweet and spicy mixture. :)
Mine came out burnt! I don't know what I did wrong! :(
Hi Ansley! I'm sorry to hear that the recipe didn't work for you! We've made this several times and never had it turn out burnt. Granted, every oven is a little different. Perhaps try cooking 25º lower or for 5 minutes less?
Your not the only one!
Crazy, next time I will change the recipe, so I don't burn mine.
Hi Tiffany! I'm sorry to hear that yours turned out burnt, too. Hopefully if you decrease the heat or cook time slightly, it will turn out fine next time. Like I said, we've never had a problem with ours burning, but every oven is different!
Lower quality EVOO's smoke point (when it burns) is around 320 degrees so that may be the issue! Try it with avocado oil or a higher quality EVOO?
Omg, yum!!! This came out sooooo good. I'll definitely be making it again. Thanks for the tasty recipe!
Yay! So glad you liked the cauliflower, Helena! Thanks for letting us know. :)
This sounds really good and so simple to do. I love cauliflower and I'm always looking for new ways to prepare it :)
If you're a cauliflower fan, you will definitely love this recipe! One of my absolute favorite ways to eat it. :)
Great all around, go to recipe. I had a head of cauliflower in the fridge that I was wondering how to use it. It got put to good use.
BTW, reading your blog, it looks like your b-day is 09/03. If so, just know that all of the worlds greatest, most beautiful, highly intelligent world changers are born on this day. Can you tell it's my b-day too? :-)
Hi Shane –
Nice! I'm glad you liked the recipe. It's definitely one to keep in mind for quick, easy dinners. And yes... You are exactly right! There's something special about those September 3rd babies. :)
