Cauliflower just went to a whole new level of awesome with these crunchy little bites that your kids will adore.

The cauliflower florets make them seriously high in vitamin C.  Would you believe it? Second to that is vitamin K, folate, even vitamins B 1, 2 and 3 for energy-producing properties, magnesium for growing muscles and calcium for strong bones.

The great news is that the florets are cooked the right way in the oven, ensuring they hold on to all those vital nutrients in the baking process.

They’ll never know they’re eating vegetables garnished with immunity-boosting herbs and spices like paprika, garlic, and turmeric; ideal for fighting flu and fever.

Coated in a batter with no nasty ingredients, the recipe includes a nut milk base and almond meal instead of breadcrumbs which provide the fiber they need to make it nice and digestible for their little tummies.

It's a vegan-friendly snack too, as no animal content was used. Another perfect reason to use this as a favorite party food.
