GET CREATIVE WITH CAULIFLOWER
I know I’ve been raving about cauliflower. But that’s because in our house, we roast it, bake it, stir-fry it and even make rice out of it.
I know, sounds crazy but it’s that versatile – just check out these 10 ways to use cauliflower for yourself. Plus, the choline that’s in cauliflower, actually helps with learning and memory function – naturally.
* 2 tbsp. of olive oil
* ½ tsp. of garlic powder
* ½ tsp. of paprika
* ½ tsp. of salt
* 1 head of cauliflower florets
* 1 cup of hot sauce
* 1 tbsp. of maple syrup
HOW TO MAKE THEM:
- Preheat the oven to 425F degrees. In a large bowl, toss the florets in olive oil, garlic powder, paprika and salt mixture.
- Place them on lined baking sheet; spreading them out and making sure they’re flat.
- Roast for 25 minutes, flipping after 15 minutes.
- While the cauliflower bakes, whisk together the hot sauce and maple syrup. When the cauliflower is out of the oven, drizzle it with the sauce – enjoy!
If cauliflower isn’t your thing, use broccoli. Just reduce your temperature to 350F and cut your oven time by 5 minutes.
Remember, cauliflower’s an easy option for any occasion.
Especially when you’re looking for a healthy alternative to traditional wings.
