Can You Eat Cauliflower on Keto?
Cauliflower is very similar to Broccoli and is low in carbs. Even though this particular baked cauliflower recipe is not keto-friendly because of the sweet and spicy sauce that’s added to it, generally simply baked cauliflower with no added sugary sauces are keto-friendly. They are a great cruciferous veggie with 1.5 grams of net carbs per half a cup.
Sweet and Spicy Baked Cauliflower
- 1 Large Head Cauliflower cut into bite-sized florets
- Cooking Oil Spray
- 1 Tsp Garlic Salt
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 Tbsp Green Onions sliced
- 1 Tbsp Sesame Seeds
For the Sweet and Spicy Sticky Sauce:
- ¼ Cup Honey
- 2 Garlic Cloves minced
- ¼ Cup Low sodium soy sauce or coconut amino
- 1 Tbsp Sriracha
- 1 Tbsp Hoisin Sauce
- 1 Tsp Gluten-free flour or cornstarch
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking tray with parchment pepper.
Arrange the cauliflower florets in a single layer onto the prepared baking tray and spray with cooking oil. Sprinkle with garlic salt, and pepper, and using your hands toss well to coat.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, until it starts to brown on the edges. While cauliflower is cooking, combine all the sauce ingredients into a small saucepan and whisk until well incorporated.
Place the saucepan over medium heat and stir frequently, until sauce thickens about 4-5 minutes.
Once the cauliflower has finished baking, remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes.
Pour the sauce over and toss until fully coated. Top with green onions and sesame seeds and enjoy!
