Roasted Sweet Chili Cauliflower is a perfect accompaniment to any Asian-style dish, such as chicken and rice or noodles. Cauliflower is tossed in sweet chili sauce and roasted until soft and tender.
One of my favorite ways to make cauliflower is to roast it in the oven! Roasting brings out the sweetness of cauliflower and gets rid of the slightly bitter taste that it has when it’s raw. I don’t mind raw cauliflower, but I know it’s one of the more tough veggies to get to taste good!
My secret trick for cauliflower is sweet chili sauce! Nick loves sweet chili sauce on basically anything. It’s got a wonderful sweet, sticky, garlicky taste. This recipe will last a few days in the fridge as well and doesn’t get dried out. If you wanted to make it spicier, you could add some sriracha or chili paste.
This would go perfectly with an Asian style dish like sesame chicken or maybe a pad thai noodle dish. Yum!
