I have been wanting to remake these since I last shared them about a year ago - I played around with the recipe a bit and prefer them the way that I am sharing with you today.
These buffalo cauliflower bites came out so crispy and spicy, you just need one bowl and about 45 minutes! I think they make the perfect appetizer during those Sunday football games or on top or a salad or inside a taco shell.
They are easy to make and just require a few ingredients. This time around I decided to make a batter for the cauliflower by mixing together flour, water, and a few other spices. I lightly coated the florets with the batter and baked them in the oven until they became crispy. Once they were finished baking, I added the hot sauce mixture over the florets and continued to bake it once again. I love dipping these in my favorite non dairy ranch or extra hot sauce!
They will last a few days in the fridge and you can always reheat them up again in the oven or toss them cold over a salad or in a taco shell!
I hope you enjoy them!
4 cups of chopped cauliflower florets
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup flour (or gluten free flour)
2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. chili powder
pinch of sea salt
1/2 cup of your favorite hot sauce
1/2 freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp. non dairy butter
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl mix together the water, flour, and spices until fully combined.
Add the cauliflower florets to the bowl and mix well in the batter.
Spread the cauliflower florets evenly on the baking sheet.
Bake in the oven for 25 minutes, flipping halfway.
While the “wings” are baking in the oven, mix the sauce together in a small bowl.
Once the cauliflower florets are finished, brush them with the sauce.
Bake in the oven again, for about 15-20 minutes. For the last 2-3 minutes you can place under the broiler on high!
The cauliflower florets should be crispy when done!
Serve with your favorite dip - ranch or hot sauce!
They will last a few days in the fridge; to reheat just place back in the oven at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes!
