This easy to make Crackling Cauliflower recipe is an excellent side dish that is healthy and paleo friendly. Be sure to make enough because it does go fast!
I tried this for the first time a month ago at Whole Foods and loved it. We were invited to BBQ this weekend with some good friends, and Crackling Cauliflower was top of mind to bring as an adult side dish. It turned out to be a good call.
One thing I love about this dish is how well the spices work together. I also am excited for any opportunity to work with garam masala, which is still a fairly new ingredient for us. More to come!
