Cajun Cauliflower Bites

The ingredients included in this cauliflower bites recipe are:

  • Cauliflower: a small head of cauliflower yields about 3-4 cups.
  • Parmesan cheese: freshly grated cheeseis better
  • Cajun Seasoning: Noubess Cajun Seasoning for flavor and spicy taste
  • Butter: melted unsalted butter preferably – best for people following a low sodium diet.

How to make cauliflower bites

It is always a good idea to prepare all the ingredients before turning on the stove or the oven with each recipe. Always start with the main ingredient.

  1. Prepare a baking sheet pan
  2. Cutting the cauliflower: place cauliflower on a cutting board – the side where the stem was cut should touch the board. Cut the cauliflower in half and then in quaters. Cut the core out and break the florets apart with your hands. Use a paring knife to cut out the thick florets. Cut all florets about the same size so they all cook evenly. Place in a large bowl.
  3. Parmesan Cheese: use a grater preferably to grate the cheese.
  4. Measure the Cajun Seasoning and place into a small bowl.
  5. Measure the butter and place into a microwave proof bowl to melt

Lastly, drizzle the butter on the florets, then sprinkle the seasoning, followed by the grated cheese. Make sure every floret is coated. You may want to use your hands, a ziplock bag, or a bowl with a lid to toss the florets gently.

Notes and Tips

  • Cut the florets roughtly the same size to ensure that all pieces are cooked at the same time.
  • The florets should be golden brown and a bit crispy. Do not overcook the cauliflower florets.
  • Use any of the Noubess Seasoning to play around with flavor.
  • Use a good butter brand – nothing cheap if you can.
  • Use this simple Yogurt Garlic Sauce as a dipping sauce. It will tone down the heat from the Cajun Seasoning for those who do not like spicy food.
  • An excellent side dish to serve with salmon, roasted chicken or roasted pork.
