Maple Sriracha Cauliflower Bites 

story time & new recipe! one of the most frequent questions that I get is how I continue to stay motivated, and it all comes back to reflect on my journey! when I first left my teaching career- I received a lot of negative feedback, which caused me to have a ton of anxiety. Rather than letting it impact me (& this is easier said than done)- I used it to fuel positive action and taught myself how to create content, shoot recipes, and edit- really, everything that I know today! So please Remember- when you do what you love- you will succeed (and never work a day in your life) love you all! xx 

Maple Sriracha Cauliflower Bites Recipe

Serves 4


  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds

Maple Sriracha Glaze

  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 tbsp sriracha
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

Maple Aioli

  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup 


1. Preheat oven to 425F degrees. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut cauliflower into florets and set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, seasonings, salt & pepper. Mix together. Slowly pour in the milk and mix together until combined- the batter should be smooth and not clumpy.

2. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, sriracha and maple syrup together to form a glaze. Set aside.

3. Add cauliflower to the batter and make sure the entire floret is covered. Let the excess batter drip off. Remove from batter and place on baking sheet. Repeat. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove halfway and drizzle glaze over top of the cauliflower. Brush the glaze on the cauliflower to make sure it is coated. Add the cauliflower back into the oven for 15-20 minutes.

4. While cauliflower is in the oven, combine mayo and maple syrup to make aioli. Remove cauliflower from oven and plate. Finish with sesame seeds, salt and pepper. Serve with maple aioli and enjoy!
