Ingredients

For Cauliflower Bites

  • large head of cauliflower (about 5-6 cups raw)
  • 1/2  Cup  almond milk
  • 1/2 to 1  Cup  water
  • Gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 2  Teaspoons  garlic powder
  • 2  Teaspoons  onion powder
  • 1  Teaspoon  cumin powder
  • 1  Dash of  cayenne pepper
  • Ground black pepper and sea salt

For Buffalo Sauce

  • 3/4 to 1  Cups  red hot sauce
  • 1  Tablespoon  grass-fed butter

Directions

For Cauliflower Bites

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Line a baking sheet with foil and well grease with coconut oil.

Break cauliflower head into small bite-sized pieces.

Mix flour, milk, water, and spices into a small bowl.

Dip each cauliflower floret into this flour mixture. (This is the step where you can either make the batter thick or thin by using less/more water respectively. I enjoy it on the thinner side so I choose to add more water.)

Lay on baking sheet in an even layer to ensure it bakes evenly.

Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

For Buffalo Sauce

In a small saucepan, melt the butter and hot sauce, bring to a simmer and remove from heat.

After the cauliflower bites have baked, pour the Buffalo sauce mixture onto the bites.

Stir until each cauliflower bite has been coated in the sauce.

Bake for another 10-15 minutes.

Cauliflower Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Cauliflower Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
