  • 1/2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup organic maple syrup
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • One large head cauliflower
  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 2 tbsp flax seed
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds


  • Preheat your oven to 450°F, and spray a baking sheet with coconut oil cooking spray.
  • Combine chili powder, smoked paprika, salt, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, maple syrup and garlic in a bowl. Whisk until well combined.
  • Wash and cut cauliflower into florets and spread out in single layer on prepped cooking sheet.
  • In separate bowl, combine almond meal, flax seed and almond milk.
  • Drizzle the almond meal batter over cauliflower and toss to thoroughly coat.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, then remove from oven and pour sauce over cauliflower.
  • Return to oven and bake additional 5 minutes. Remove pan one final time, gently flip cauliflower and bake another 3-5 minutes. Check cauliflower throughout this process to determine cook-time. The size of the florets will play a role in how quickly they cook. Enjoy!


Only the Cauliflower recipe is gluten-free, I've shown this paired with Barley which is not.
