Spiced Cauliflower Bites
For a deliciously healthy side dish that you can prepare ahead of time, you can't go past these spiced cauliflower bites. Their spiciness is balanced out with a little bit of sweetness from the maple syrup. This style of marinade means that very little makes its way into the end product, but for a very low carb diet you can absolutely opt out of the sweetener. These are great to make up on a Sunday to use for lunches throughout the week.
Recipe Tester Feedback: "Quick and easy side dish to make that has a decent amount of flavour. Great as a side dish if you're having people over, as you do most of the work beforehand and then just put them in the oven to cook." - Alana P.
