Ingredients:

  1. • 1 1/2 cups broccoli florets, washed and cut into bite size pieces
  2. • 1 1/2 cups cauliflower florets, washed and cut into bite sized pieces
  3. • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  4. • 2 tbsp hot sauce
  5. • 1 tsp kosher salt
  6. • 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  7. • 2 teaspoons oregano
  8. • 1 tablespoon arrow root starch (substitute with potato starch)
  9. • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  10. • 1/4 cup rice flour (substitute for ap flour) Note: For spice sensitivities, substitute hot sauce with olive oil.

Instructions

  1. • Preheat the oven to 425 F.
  2. • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. • In a large mixing bowl, combine the broccoli and cauliflower.
  4. • Mix in the olive oil, hot sauce and salt until the florets are well coated.
  5. • Add the garlic powder, oregano, and arrow root starch. Mix until everything is well coated.
  6. • Add in the nutritional yeast and rice flour. Give everything one more big mix until the seasonings have tacked on well to the florets.
  7. • Evenly spread the seasoned florets on the parchment lined baking sheet. Do your best to avoid overcrowding the sheet. Space is important to get those florets nice and crispy.
  8. • Place the baking sheet in the middle rack of the oven and bake for 30 minutes, checking midway and rotating the sheet for consistent baking.
  9. • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and plate the broccoli and cauliflower to serve.
