Ingredients

  • 1 lb cauliflower cut into florets
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • cup almond flour
  • cup flaxseed meal
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup canned tomato sauce
  • 2-3 tbs hot sauce
  • 1 tbs sugar free honey
  • salt, pepper, and cilantro leaves to serve

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F (200C).
  • To "bread" the cauliflower, beat two eggs in one bowl. Then combine almond flour and flaxseed meal in a second bowl. Cut fresh cauliflower into small to medium florets.
  • Dip each floret into the egg, shake any excess off, then coat it in  the almond flour mixture. Place each floret on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat.
  • Roast the breaded cauliflower in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make the sauce in a large bowl by combining mayonnaise, canned tomato sauce, hot sauce, and sugar free honey. I'd recommend starting with 1-2 tablespoons of hot sauce, testing for heat, and only adding a third if you prefer it hotter.
  • Remove the cauliflower from the oven and add them to the sauce. Stir to coat them well.
  • Return to the oven for another 10 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender.
  • Serve, garnished with a quick twist of salt and black pepper and some fresh cilantro leaves.
