Cauliflower Buffalo Bites

Are you hosting a Super Bowl Party at your home?  Or maybe you are heading to a friend’s house?  Offset some of those other high-calorie snacks with these Cauliflower Buffalo Bites.  They certainly aren’t the real deal, but they are a really great alternative for those of you who are trying to live a healthier lifestyle.  I think you’ll be surprised- these are actually REALLY good!

If you are vegan, feel free to replace the butter with a butter substitute!  The original author of this recipe (see link below) stresses the importance of letting these sit and cool for at least 20 minutes before diving in.

Ingredients:

  • 1 head cauliflower; chopped into bite size pieces
  • ½ cup brown rice flour (or any other flour if you aren’t gluten-free)
  • ½ cup water
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • Pinch of granulated garlic powder
  • Non-stick spray

Sauce:

  • 1 tsp. butter, melted
  • ½ cup Frank’s Red Hot sauce

Cauliflower Buffalo Bites - a great healthy addition to your Super Bowl party!

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine brown rice flour, water, garlic powder and salt. Mix thoroughly with a whisk.
  3. Dip cauliflower pieces in the batter until coated evenly, then place on a lightly greased, non-stick baking sheet.
  4. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the batter hardens, then flip with a spatula and bake for another 5 minutes.
  5. Whisk together Frank’s Red Hot sauce and butter in a small bowl.
  6. When the cauliflower is finished, take a plastic pastry brush and evenly brush each piece with the hot sauce mixture.
  7. Bake coated cauliflower for an additional 8-10 minutes, or until cauliflower is crispy, and sauce looks absorbed.
  8. Remove from oven.
  9. Let cauliflower bites set out for at least 20 minutes before serving.

Enjoy!
