This was delicious and not what I expected. Can you guess what it is?
OK, time is up. The answer: spicy buffalo cauliflower bites.
Who thought chicken wings? So did I. When I came from work one day last week, April Fools Day no less, I was greeted by the whiffy tang of hot sauce. I instantly thought wings. But, my wife, who prepared this dish, is a vegetarian. I knew something was up.
“Don’t say anything, just try ’em,” she said. Down the hatch they went. And they were good. Hot sauce makes everything better, doesn’t it.
These were really simple to make and one cup of cauliflower makes six servings. The recipe came from www.skinnytaste.com. I’ve included it below and on my recipe page.
Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites
Servings: 6 • Size: about 1 cup cauliflower
1 cup water
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp garlic powder
22 oz (6 1/2 cups) cauliflower florets
3/4 cup Franks Hot Sauce
1 tbsp melted unsalted butter
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Lightly spray a large non-stick baking sheet with oil.
Combine the water, flour, and garlic powder in a bowl and stir until well combined.
Coat the cauliflower pieces with the flour mixture and place on the baking sheet; bake for 20 minutes.
While the cauliflower is baking, combine the hot sauce and butter in a small bowl.
Pour the hot sauce mixture over the baked cauliflower and continue baking for an additional 5 minutes. Serve with skinny blue cheese dressing and celery sticks.
