A member of the cruciferous vegetable family cauliflower is loaded with many health benefits.

Some of the reasons cauliflower is so healthy is it’s:

  • good in the fight against cancer as well as good for heart health due to it containing sulforaphane
  • high in antioxidants
  • anti-inflammatory
  • high in fiber
  • high in vitamins C, K, and the B vitamins
  • low in calories

I found this recipe here.

Prep Time: 10 min.                            Cook Time: 20 min.                                      Total Time: 30 min.  

Ingredients:

  • Approx. 1 lb. cauliflower florets
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • pinch of sea salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • Approx. 2/3 cup hot sauce(I used O’Brother That’s Hot Organic Chipotle Habanero Pepper Sauce)

The hot sauce I used was extremely hot so be sure to pick a hot sauce that suits your liking.

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Cut cauliflower into florets and rinse thoroughly.  Pat florets dry.
  3. Pour hot sauce, garlic powder, sea salt, black pepper, melted butter into a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  4. Pour cauliflower florets, and hot sauce mixture into gallon-sized bag and shake thoroughly.  Make sure each floret is fully coated.
  5. Spread florets on a baking sheet.
  6. Put into oven and bake for 20 min.
  7. Serve and enjoy!

I didn’t coat the baking sheet with any oil but the original recipe said to.
