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.
