Bang Bang Cauliflower


This is a simple vegan side dish that offers a delicious sweet and spicy flavor. It's perfect for a meal at home or you can multiply the recipe and take it to a BBQ!


3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

2 tbsp. sweet chili sauce

1 tbsp. sriracha

Juice of 1 lime

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 medium cauliflower, cut into florets

kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1 tsp. Chopped cilantro, for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 425º. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, sweet chili sauce, Sriracha, lime juice, and garlic.
  • On a large baking sheet, toss cauliflower in sauce until fully coated. Season generously with salt and pepper. Spread into an even layer and roast until slightly charred and tender, 30 to 35 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and serve.

I found that letting the pieces slightly char is the key to this recipe!
