To begin, you’ll batter cauliflower florets in a chickpea flour mixture. Rich in sulforaphane, cauliflower can help fight cancer and boost heart health. It’s also packed with antioxidants and phytonutrients that can protect your body against free-radical damage.

Next, arrange the pieces on a baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes. And finally, you’ll pour a Sriracha, honey and sesame oil sauce over the florets just before serving.

Not a fan of Sriracha? Feel free to swap in your favorite wings sauce, such as Buffalo or teriyaki.

One serving contains 142 calories; 2.73 grams total fat; 6.21 grams protein; and 24.83 total carbs.
