Hi there! I’m Jessica and I blog at Jessiker Bakes, where I share healthy, delicious recipes with a twist and my favorite desserts.

Cauliflower has long been one of my favorite vegetables because of how versatile it is. The first time I made Cauliflower Wings we were shocked as to just how much it tasted like nuggets –  except so much softer and it seemed to have absorbed the flavors so well! Ever since then I’ve loved it as a way to introduce a meatless recipe that still tasted hearty and incredibly delicious.

These cauliflower bites are definitely my favorite cauliflower recipe so far. The almond milk coating provides a lighter battering process than egg and milk, but works just as well. The panko breadcrumbs (or just regular toasted breadcrumbs) create a crunchy exterior and the honey Sriracha sauce creates such a delicious and spicy flavor! The sauce was definitely favorite part and if you lessened the Sriracha a bit, these could easily be served to younger children but are currently at a perfect light spice level for older children and adults. Baking the cauliflower softens it so you would never know you weren’t eating your favorite chicken nuggets!
