The big birthday bash, Canada 150, is coming up this weekend, so you might be looking for some snack ideas. Recipe number 15 is another Matt Basile recipe from “Street Food Diaries”. Spicy Roasted Cauliflower with dip. I love cauliflower and I love finding new recipes for this underused vegetable.
Break a cauliflower into florets and brush with sriracha sauce. We had some buffalo hot sauce made up and used that.
Drizzle with olive oil and add Thai chilies if you feel the need for more heat. Bake at 450F/230C for 25 minutes. Ours took longer. At this point, Matt sprinkles the cauliflower with cayenne pepper and dried chilies. What!? Then broil/grill for 5 minutes. Watch closely as it burns very quickly.
We used sour cream and grated cucumber for the dip. Matt uses yogurt and adds cucumber, garlic and mint. I think tzatziki sauce would be good here too. Now dig in!
Becky and I polished these off in 5 minutes!! Hot. Good. It’s like eating chicken wings without all the bad stuff. I think we are going to try these on the BBQ this weekend.
Happy Canada Day! 🇨🇦
