Easy To Make Creamy Sweet Chili Cauliflower Bites

by | December 8, 2018

Cauliflower is a perfect meat substitute especially for first timers who are trying to get their feet wet in the vegan world. It can be used for rice, “steaks”, and a popular choice tacos. My favorite way to use this chameleon vegetable is popcorn sweet chili cauliflower bites. You can use this same recipe as a great base and switch up the sauce for whatever suits your palate’s mood. Even though I recommend any sauce with these popcorn bites; I use the creamy sweet chili sauce because it has a great decadent flavor to match with plain jasmine rice, lettuce cups, or even just for a quick dip.
