Spicy cauliflower poppers with a cooling cashew dip.
If you haven’t noticed, I love spices. I mean LOVE them. Beyond imparting bold flavors, they are incredibly medicinal (I outline all their healthful properties in my Ultimate Grocery Store Guide). So I tend to be heavy handed with them.
This spicy cauliflower poppers dish brings together a variety of health-promoting spices, including the seldom used thyme and oregano, alongside spicy favorites cayenne and chipotle powder (which speed up your metabolism).
The simple cashew dip complements the dish perfectly, helping to cool down any heat.
Stick a toothpick in these bad boys, and you’ve got an easy party appetizer, or serve these as a spicy side dish or component of a veggie bowl. Anyway you serve them, they’re a delicious and fun, yet simple addition to the table.
