Expert Tips for Making the Best Roasted Cauliflower
  • Rice the Cauliflower: This Spicy Cauliflower would make a great fried rice to accompany your favorite Asian dish.
  • This Recipe Can be Doubled: This is a great recipe for a crowd. Simply increase the ingredients proportionately and split it into two baking dishes before baking.
  • Kick up the Heat: Feel free to add more hot sauce, red pepper flake or chili sauce to make it even spicier.
  • How long will it last? Refrigerate the cauliflower in shallow airtight containers or wrap tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Properly stored, cooked cauliflower will last for 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator.
