Spicy Peanut Butter & Maple Cauliflower

Since becoming vegan one of my goals in doing so is to eat more vegetables, especially ones that I normally wouldn’t have before. This includes cauliflower! I recently came across this recipe on Instagram and knew I had to give it a try. The pictures looked so appetizing and the ingredient list sealed the deal. I’m always here for a recipe with basic ingredients, especially ones that I already have! Making this spicy peanut butter and maple cauliflower was super easy and paired really well with my quinoa and sautéed spinach and kale mixture. I even used some of the leftover sauce to spread over the rest of the bowl. YUM!

The only thing I would have changed about this Spicy Peanut Butter & Maple Cauliflower recipe is subbing the hot sauce for sriracha sauce. I love spicy food and I needed more of a kick! Give it a try and tell me what you think!
