Cauliflower Buffalo Bites

We love our hot and spicy foods....buffalo wings included.   In fact, buffalo wings were one of the food items that we were concerned about missing when we talked about going to a more meatless diet.  However, a conversation that I had with a coworker kept coming to my mind.  She had talked to me about the  most delicious cauliflower recipe.  I was skeptical, but willing to give it a try.  Why not.  I began to search the internet and somehow I stumbled upon this recipe. 

Oh my word!  When I tasted this recipe for the first time, my eyes widened in surprise. They were actually quite tasty!  I was hooked!
Cauliflower Buffalo Bites

  • 1 large head Cauliflower
  • 2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup Hot sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp Lemon juice
  •  1 tbs butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 cup Water
1.  Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray.
2  In a large bowl whisk flour, water, garlic powder and paprika in a bowl until batter is smooth.  Add the cauliflower and toss to coat.
3. Spread the cauliflower on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping the cauliflower halfway through.
4.  In a small bowl, whisk together the hot sauce, melted butter and lemon juice until well combined.
5.  After the 25 minutes bake time, brush the cauliflower with the hot sauce mixture and return the cauliflower to the oven for an additional 15 minutes
6.  Serve with blue cheese or ranch dressing and celery sticks.

I am telling you, you will be scratching your head and wondering where the meat is in this recipe.  They taste that much like buffalo wings!   This recipe is a winner.  It is so good, that within two or three days of making this for the first time, Jason was asking for it again!

I love these and make them often. If you have an air fryer they are even crispier!

If you made these for me I would try them. I would never make them though. LOL I am the only one in the house that will eat cauliflower.

air fryers are awesome but they have drawbacks. Like would you want a drawer one or a toaster oven style. The size would be fine since just the two of you.
