These cauliflower bites are little umami flavor bombs! Fresh cauliflower florets are tossed in a wonderful mixture of miso, sesame oil, garlic, and other spices, then roasted until crisp around the edges. These make an awesome snack or meal when served with other veggies or your favorite grains.

Umami Bomb Cauliflower Bites [Vegan, Gluten-Free]


  • 1 medium cauliflower
  • 2 tablespoons miso paste
  • 3 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon tomato pureé
  • 1 tablespoon chili flakes
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon rice flour


  1. Start by preheating the oven to 350°F. Take a large bowl and make the batter by adding all the ingredients except for the cauliflower and mix well until combined. Now cut the cauliflower into bite-sized pieces and add them to the bowl. Toss them around until they’re coated with the batter.
  2. Place the cauliflower bites on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake them in the oven for about 45 minutes or until the edges are slightly burnt/crisp. Once done remove them from the oven and enjoy as a snack or with rice, in a salad or however else your heart desires.

Meyer Lemon Coconut Cream Tarts With Mint and Lavender [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]

To make the crust: put the oats and almonds into a high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick, slightly crumbly paste. If needed or desired, add a little maple syrup, then press into two tartlet molds or whatever shapes/molds you like. Put in the fridge. To make the lemon coconut cream: put the coconut and cashews into your high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick paste/butter. Stir in a 1/4 cup lemon juice and the maple syrup until evenly combined (or blend it in). If you'd like more lemon flavour, add more lemon juice! I like mine quite tart - no pun intended, seriously - so I used a full 1/2 cup. Spread this mixture evenly into your crusts, then let them sit in the fridge overnight or for at least a couple hours so the flavours can get to know each other. Garnish with mint, basil, lemon zest, maple syrup or whatever else you like! Life is good!
