Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Ingredients

One head cauliflower
1/2 C flour
1/2 C water
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 C Frank’s Buffalo sauce
2 Tbsp butter, melted

Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Heavily grease a baking dish with butter or non-stick cooking spray.

Separate the cauliflower into bite sized chunks. In a large bowl, mix flour, water, olive oil, garlic powder and salt until well combined. Combine cauliflower and gently toss to coat each piece evenly. Transfer coated cauliflower to the previously prepared baking dish and bake in preheated oven for fifteen minutes, turning once halfway through cooking time. Remove from oven. In a large bowl, combine hot sauce and melted butter.

Add partially baked cauliflower and gently toss to spread evenly. Return cauliflower to the baking sheet and continue cooking for an additional twenty-twenty five minutes, turning once, until pieces start to turn golden brown. Remove from oven and serve hot with blue cheese dressing and fresh celery sticks.
