Crispy cheesy roasted cauliflower made with nutritional yeast, breadcrumbs, and a few simple spices. This side dish is so easy to whip up, and packed with delicious vegan cheesy flavor!
These vegan cheesy roasted cauliflower bites are the perfect simple side dish or appetizer. They’re coated in a blend of nutritional yeast, breadcrumbs, hot sauce, and a few spices.
They come out so flavorful, and are seriously addicting. You can serve them on their own, or with your favorite dipping sauce.
Roasted cauliflower is probably one of my top 5 favorite veggie side dishes. It’s so easy to prepare, and pairs well with any main course.
These cauliflower bites are mildly spicy from the hot sauce, and have a delicious cheesy flavor from the nutritional yeast.
Nutritional yeast is a pantry staple of mine, and adds a “cheesy” flavor to your cooking without the dairy. I love to use it with roasted vegetables, tofu, and pasta sauces.
Cheesy roasted cauliflower is a delicious way to incorporate more vegetables into your week, and comes together so quickly!
All you need to do is-
- Cut your cauliflower into florets
- Toss them in a bowl with the spices, nutritional yeast, hot sauce and breadcrumbs
- Layer them on a sheet pan and drizzle them with olive oil
- Bake until crispy!
DELICIOUS!! I made this last night for dinner… I used Cholula hot sauce and skipped the bread crumbs (currently trying to cut back on carbs) and it turned out fantastic! I ate the leftovers cold this morning! GREAT RECIPE! Thank you!
So glad you enjoyed them, Chelsea!
This was PERFECTION. Followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect! Definitely a go-to from now on!
Thank you Abby!! So glad you enjoyed it
This was so delicious, we loved it! Used Cholula sauce instead with great results. Cooked it for 45 minutes, but may add 5-10 mins next time to make it even crispier. Can’t wait to make it again 🙂
So glad you enjoyed it!!
It seems like a liquid is missing. Adding only 2 Tbsp hot sauce to the bread crumbs, nutritional yeast, and dry spices results in a dry mixture that does not stick to the cauliflower when it is “tossed.” It definitely does not look like the photo.
Hey Bobbi, I’m so sorry this recipe didn’t turn out for you! I usually add the cauliflower to the bowl, then pour on the hot sauce, nutritional yeast and breadcrumbs over it and toss together rather than mixing those together separately to form a crumb mixture like you mentioned. Once it gets dumped onto the sheet pan you can sprinkle any excess crumbs over the top. You can also double the hot sauce for a larger head of cauliflower!
