Cauliflower Nuggets

Cauliflower is made for many things — nuggets are no exception!

At the moment, cauliflower is scarce in Sydney.

When you eat only a specific array of food, you don’t know what you got until it’s gone! So, therefore, when I saw this recipe, I decided to post it out of love.

I do LOVE cauliflower. You can make pizza bases rice and even have it in steak form. All you need is a variety of spices, and off you go. It’s well within anyone creative reach as to how far cauliflower can go.

So, if you are in the middle of deciding what plant-based meal to try this week/weekend, look no further than cauliflower nuggets.

If anyone, make them for me because I miss them.

Happy cooking in the healthy kitchen.
