Ever since spring break in New Orleans, if something has chipotle on the menu, I want it. If it's spicy, I want it. And if it's spicy and doubles as healthy, it's like crack to me. I whipped up this random and extremely easy roasted chipotle cauliflower recipe, and I've been hooked ever since.
All you need is...
A head of cauliflower cut into bite sized pieces
Chipotle hot sauce
Garlic olive oil (or olive oil and some garlic salt)
A dash of Cajun seasoning (optional)
Salt and Pepper to taste
1. Preheat your oven to 400
2. Cut up your cauliflower and toss with chipotle hot sauce
3. Drizzle on garlic olive oil and toss until the cauliflower is completely coated in oil/sauce. I added a dash of cajun seasoning for a little extra kick!
4. Roast for 25-30 minutes, or until cauliflower is crispy on the edges, but soft and a little brown.
5. Salt and pepper to taste
The cauliflower is so easy, and works for dinner or a side! Just a note: I added almost a 1/3 of the bottle of Chipotle sauce, and used a head of a whole head of cauliflower. The cauliflower had a lot of spice and flavor, so in this case, less is more! It won't look too chipotle-ish, but I promise you'll still taste it!!
Let me know if you try this recipe and what you think!
