Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper.

Cut the head of cauliflower into small, bite-sized florets (approximately 1 inch across or smaller).

Whisk together the oat flour, sea salt, and black pepper in a large airtight container.

Add the cauliflower florets to a large, nonreactive mixing bowl. Pour ¼ cup of the apple cider vinegar over the florets and toss to coat. If you have an extra 15 to 30 minutes, let it marinate in the vinegar. If not, no worries, you can move straight to the next step!

Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cauliflower florets into the container with the oat flour.

Secure the lid and vigorously shake the container to coat the florets. Dump the florets onto the lined pan and spread them out into a single layer.

Bake for 15 minutes, flip the florets over as best you can, and bake another 15 to 17 minutes or until crisp and golden.

If you want a bit more vinegar tang, use your fingers to spritz the cauliflower with the remaining tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Season with a bit more sea salt and black pepper, if desired.

Serve warm.
