Ingredients
  • 4 cups cauliflower florets
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoon sriracha
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 Tablespoon tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400ยบ. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl (or a Ziplock bag) combine cauliflower and other ingredients – maple syrup, sriracha, olive oil, tamari, and pepper. Mix until the cauliflower is well coated.
  3. Pour the cauliflower onto the baking sheet and place in the oven. Be sure to give the cauliflower “room to breathe.” If the baking sheet is over-crowded, the cauliflower will “steam” and it won’t cook right. If you need to, divide it between 2 baking sheets.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes or until cauliflower is tender.
