Spicy Baked Purple Cauliflower

This is a SUPER easy to throw together meal, literally.  Chop up your cauliflower (in the color of your choosing!) and throw in your easy-to-make sauce.  Bake and eat lol.  Almost as easy as kale chips…I should put my recipe up of our delicious kale chips we SO enjoyed back during the good ol’ college days.  Wow.  This May makes it 3 years since I graduated college.  The same amount of time that I attended my last (the best) college, Andrews University.  Feels like I almost lived there my whole life, so sad that the time I spent there is getting farther and farther away.  I miss it:(

Anyways, sorry I have not been posting up my recipe’s more often lately.  As I mentioned in my Instagram, ever since coming back from Trinidad in March, we’ve had my Birthday that came up (and events centered around that), our best friend’s wedding my husband and I were both in (weddings = downright stressful…), Easter/Mothers day coming up, currently doing freelance work at home, and on top of that we have been working on 2 other large projects on our personal time… It’s just been a lot.  I had Tim do a lot of the cooking the past 2 weeks while I work, which is nice, because I got a break and he got to cook his favorite dishes:)  He made a most DELICIOUS White bean soup that I will be posting soon!  YUMM so good, topped with roasted garlic mushrooms OOO!

So yes, I am backed up. But I do have dishes I will be sharing soon, don’t give up on me now;P

For now, I hope you enjoy this recipe as a delicious side or snack, it’s a winner!


BTW I found this recipe originally from The Fitchen and slightly altered it to fit my needs:)

Spicy Baked Purple Cauliflower

Print Recipe
Serves: 3-4 Cooking Time: 1


  • 2 Heads - Cauliflower (your choice in color ;P )
  • SAUCE:
  • 4 Tbsp - Maple Syrup
  • 4 Tbsp - Frank's Red Hot Cayenne Pepper Sauce (or any hot sauce)
  • 2 Tbsp - Melted Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tbsp - Soy Sauce
  • Black Pepper to taste



Line a large baking/cookie tray with oiled down parchment paper and preheat oven 400F.


Chop your cauliflower into bite sized florets and toss into a large mixing bowl.


Combine your sauce ingredients into a small bowl and stir well.


Pour your sauce over your cauliflower and mix well (feel free to use your hands and get dirty!).


Dump everything evenly out onto your baking tray, making sure to give the florets room between each other so they can get crispy.


Bake for 30min, or until browned on the edges and easy to pierce.


Take out, let cool and enjoy as a delicious side meal:)


You can reheat these for leftovers by baking in the toaster oven to warm them up from the refrigerator.
