Crispy Hot Honey Cauliflower with Peppadew Peppers











Hello & Happy Friday







If there is one veggie I had to pick as being the most versatile, it’s cauliflower!


You can honestly do so much with it, the options are endless. From soups to sauces, pizza crust and more, there isn’t anything that cauliflower can’t do. Bonus, it’s packed with fiber so it’s so filling. I have hundreds of recipes that I’m waiting to explore, one of them, was this roasted cauliflower with pepadew peppers! I had seen this combo in a recipe before, and knew I could put my own spin on it. 


Just like that, the Hot Honey Crispy Cauliflower with Peppadew Peppers was born!


This recipe is so easy and the flavors are so on point, it’s a solid 10 on the scale for me. Over the years of doing nutrition I’ve come to realize it’s honestly the easy concepts like this dish that we crave. If you can take an everyday veggie and turn it into something you crave, that’s a true win!  


In terms of flavors I love all things peppadew!


Not familiar with these peppers? 


Pickled and jarred Juanita (or piquanté) peppers are  from South Africa—commonly called Peppadew peppers—are small and round like a cherry tomato, but sweet and peppery like a pepper. Peppadew is the brand name of the South African company that makes them. Look for them with other pickled vegetables at well-stocked grocery stores.


Simply put, they are sweet, tart, and have a hint of heat! They can pair well with a myriad of dishes too!







What’s fab about this dish? Everything! It’s quick, easy, flavor packed, fiber packed, perfect for any season, it’s sweet and savory, has a hint of heat, can be made vegan, you could throw them on a salad, it can easily be made in bulk, and is the perfect accompaniment to any main dish!
