Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond milk, lime juice, garlic, chili powder, cumin, paprika, sea salt, pepper, and cayenne until smooth. Add in the cauliflower florets and mix until all are well coated in the mixture.
  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden and soft.
  4. In a food processor, blend all of the ingredients for the spicy avocado cream until smooth and creamy. Texture will be thick, and similar to mayonnaise.
