Meal Monday: Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Not really a meal, but makes a nice appetizer or side dish. One of the restaurants here has a similar dish on their menu & I found a recipe online that worked.

Ingredients:


1 cup water
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp garlic powder
6 1/2 cups cauliflower florets
3/4 cup Franks Hot Sauce
1 Tbsp melted unsalted butter

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 450*. Cover a baking dish with foil & lightly spray with oil or cooking spray.

Combine water, flour & garlic powder in a large bowl. Toss in cauliflower pieces to coat. Spread out on prepared pan. (It will look gross - don't worry.)

Bake for 20 minutes. While cauliflower is baking, combine butter and hot sauce.

Remove from oven and poor hot sauce over veggies. I used a spoon to keep from making a mess. Toss a bit and return to the oven. Bake another 5 minutes.



Serve with celery and blue cheese dressing if desired.


This was surprisingly good! I wasn't sure with how garlicky it smelled before adding the hot sauce, but it ended up not garlicky at all.

Recipe serves about 6 people and is about 120 calories per serving (not including the blue cheese dressing).
