Curried Lime Cauliflower Bites with Curry Mayo

I have something to share with you:

I'm in love. Head over heels in love…with these cauliflower bites. Oh, ya baby.

Each little bite-sized nugget is coated in lime juice and delicious curry spices. They're baked in the oven (not fried!) and then served with some creamy, spicy and totally addictive curry mayo.

I like to put a plate of these out at a party and watch them disappear in seconds. They also make a great side dish on your dinner plate.

Little bites of heaven goin' on right here. πŸ™‚

Curried Lime Cauliflower Bites with Curry Mayo

We all know that cauliflower is the new kale. Or is it the new Brussels sprouts? I get confused about all these food trends. One thing is for certain: cauliflower is awesome.

There is a caveat though … in order for cauliflower to be awesome, it must be roasted, or fried, or disguised as something it's not, like this Cauliflower Fried “Rice” or this Skinny Chili Cheese Dip.

Under no circumstance should cauliflower ever be steamed or boiled unless you plan on using it as a vessel to get copious amounts of cheese sauce into your mouth.

Now, let's chat about roasting cauliflower.

Something magical happens to this otherwise boring vegetable when you put it in the oven. It takes on a flavor that is rich and almost nutty. It is delicious covered in spices like it is here, but it is also delicious on its own with just a sprinkle of sea salt.

You want to make sure that you don't take the cauliflower out of the oven until you see plenty of dark brown spots on it. The flavor is in the color so don't be afraid of it.

Enjoy!
