I'm excited to share this sesame ginger cauliflower with you. If you're looking for easy cauliflower recipes, this ranks right up there with the best of them. I like easy not because I'm lazy (okay, maybe that's part of it) but because my kids love to cook and the simpler, the better.

Sesame Ginger Cauliflower Recipe

The key is to grab big heads of cauliflower for this one! Then, chop them up. See full directions at the bottom of this post.

I am not one to eat cauliflower plain, even though it is zero points – but this recipe is so tasty. I will totally eat two or three servings and not feel bad.

You can add honey to this recipe (about 1/4 cup) but it will add waaaayyy too many points if you're on Weight Watchers, and it tastes fine without it. :) Honey will make it a little stickier, but for me it's not worth the points addition.

Weight Watchers Freestyle Points

Cauliflower is zero points on the Freestyle program, and most of the other ingredients in this delicious cauliflower recipe are zero points as well. Coconut oil and sesame oil do have points. If you have a lower point alternative for oil, definitely try it out. I love coconut oil so I don't mind it. Plus, two points is still super low in Weight Watchers points! :) These are big servings as long as you have 2 big heads of cauliflower. It's impossible to say a serving is a cup etc because the size will depend on the size of the heads of cauliflower your choose. Obviously, the points are coming from the sauce and the sauce amount doesn't change no matter how much cauliflower you have. :) So, get the biggest heads of cauliflower you can and divide evenly into 6 servings for a filling, low point meal.

6 servings, 2 points per serving (11 points for entire recipe)
