Cauliflower is all the rage these days and rightly so, because you can actually use it for a lot of things. From grilling it on the barbecue to using it in a stew: cauliflower is good for everything. So now I'm sharing a recipe for crispy cauliflower florets from the oven. With this recipe you can use up leftover granola or crackers. Especially the grits left at the bottom of a jar or bag are great for this. Curious? You can find the recipe below.
- Preheat your oven to 200 degrees. You will need the above ingredients for every 3 cauliflower florets, so multiply this by the number you want to make.
- In 1 container mix the flour, water and lime juice. Do not use more than 1 tsp of lime juice, otherwise the lime taste will be too dominant.
- In another container, sprinkle the paprika, cayenne powder, sesame seeds and granola grit.
- Take a cauliflower floret and dip it in the mixture of flour, water and lemon juice. Make sure the cauliflower is fresh and firm, so you can grab the florets by the stalk. If the flour doesn't stick to the cauliflower enough, you can add some more water. If it gets too watery, just add more flour.
- Then dip the cauliflower into the second container or sprinkle the granola mixture over the cauliflower to evenly distribute.
- Place the cauliflower florets on an oven rack lined with baking paper and pop into the oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Longer than 15 minutes is not recommended, because the granola will bake through too much. If you use large pieces of cauliflower, you can pre-cook them for about 10 minutes.
- Voila! Enjoy it!
