These are cauliflower bites baked in the oven instead of fried. So tasty! It’s super easy to make and totally customizable with your favorite seasonings.

  • Cut cauliflower into small florets, relatively uniform size.
  • Toss oil together with the spices in a large bowl. Stir in the cauliflower and mix until very evenly coated.
  • Spread the cauliflower in an even layer on a baking sheet, so they are not touching.
