I absolutely love buffalo chicken wings, but lately I was introduced to a great healthy alternative. These spicy cauliflower bites are baked, not fried and taste great.
BAKED BUFFALO CAULIFLOWER BITES
1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets (about 8 cups)
1 cup of white whole wheat flour
1 cup water
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup hot sauce (I used Franks)
1 tbsp. butter, melted
Preheat oven to 450°F.
In a large bowl, combine flour, water, salt, and garlic powder and stir until smooth. Add in cauliflower and stir gently until florets are evenly coated with batter.
Arrange cauliflower in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet that has been coated with some cooking spray. Be sure the pan is not over crowded (use two pans if needed). Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
In a separate bowl combine hot sauce and melted butter. Pour evenly over the cauliflower and gently toss until evenly coated.
Pop bake in the oven for another 10 minutes or until the cauliflower begins to crisp up. Serve with carrots, celery and blue cheese dressing.
