Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Two weeks ago, we posted about some of our favorite recipes. I highlighted a few that have become staples around our house. We make the cauliflower bites a lot, ever since Rick deemed them "a 10" the first time we tried them. More often than not, we use BBQ sauce instead of hot sauce, but the recipe is interchangeable. This is another one that comes with instructions, but I typically just go for it and guesstimate.

You'll need: 
1-2 heads of cauliflower, depending on how hungry you are
equal parts water and flour
Hot sauce, BBQ sauce, soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, meat marinade, etc.

Preheat your oven to 425*. 





Cut the heads of cauliflower into bit-sized pieces. Usually, one floret works well as one bite. 

Combine equal parts flour and water to make a simple batter. I usually start with 2/3 cup of each, but may end up making more. You may want to a bit more flour for a less runny batter. 


Dip the cauliflower pieces into the batter until it is well coated. Let the excess drip off and place onto a foil-lined baking sheet. 






Place into your oven and bake for 25-28 minutes, or until golden brown. 



While the cauliflower is baking, combine your desired sauces until you have a cup to a cup and a half of liquid. Add more hot sauce if you like things spicy! When we use BBQ sauce, I typically mix in a fajita marinade we like, to make things less thick.

Pull the cauliflower out of the oven, and spoon your sauce over the bites. Return to the oven and bake for 5 to 8 more minutes. 


Serve over rice and enjoy!

Hope you are having a great Monday!
