Sticky Cauliflower Bites

Oh WOW! These have become our current go-to after school snack, side dish idea, & party food!

Absolutely CRAVE WORTHY!

With a DELICIOUS tangy sticky sauce, even the kids LOVE ’em!

Crispy little bites slathered in the most flavorful sauce! I can’t wait for you to try these!

Vegetables should taste AMAZING and be enjoyed!

💡 Cauliflower has a lot going for it. Not only is it one of the most versatile veggies, but it also contains some of every vitamin you need, as well as a healthy dose of fiber.

💦 Not bad for a veggie that’s 92% water!

💪🏾 Cauliflower is rich in antioxidants, low in carbs and calories .. PLUS, it has protective qualities to guard against cancer and heart disease! It’s also a good source of choline, which helps your metabolism, cell health, and supports many processes in your body.

✅ Because of its mild taste, it can be added to a number of recipes to replace less nutrient-dense, higher-carb ingredients.

👩🏾‍🍳 It can be used a ton of different ways in your meals – steamed or roasted, turned into “rice,” mashed like potato, or even shredded and used in bread and pizza crust!



4 servings


  • 1 large head cauliflower
  • 2 Tbsps arrowroot powder or cornstarch
  • 2-3 Tbsps water
  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos, Braggs liquid aminos, or low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup or raw honey
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsps toasted sesame oil, divided
  • 1 tsp powdered ginger
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

1 Tbsp sesame seeds


Preheat your oven to 450 degrees f. and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Drizzle with one Tablespoon of sesame oil and brush it onto the entire surface of your sheet pan.

Cut the cauliflower into 1-inch pieces and spread onto your prepared sheet pan (I like to cut them a bit bigger since they’ll continue to break while stirring).

Roast in your preheated oven for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl whisk the arrowroot/cornstarch with 2-3 Tablespoons of water until completely smooth.

Add in all of the remaining ingredients, except for the sesame seeds, and whisk until everything is well combined.

Once the florets are 15 minutes into baking, carefully remove from the oven.

Pour your sticky sauce over the cauliflower and stir to coat, then arrange them evenly without overlapping.

Continue to bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden and sticky.

You may want to give them another stir halfway through baking time, to coat with the sauce.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Enjoy them while they’re hot!
