Sweet And Spicy Bang Bang Cauliflower Bites

by | February 11, 2019

Sweet and spicy is a classic combination of flavors. I love any dish that has the sweetness at first bite and then a little heat that makes you want to go back for a second taste. Cauliflower bites or “wings” are a great substitute for meat-based meals. They offer great meaty texture and a full stomach. This recipe provides a creamy sauce and hearty bites. And why it is perfectly delicious on its own you can also try wrapping them up in a soft tortilla for a street taco feel.

Without much ado, let me get you to sweet and spicy cauliflower bites recipe.
