Ingredients

  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into bite-sized florets
  • 1/2 cup flour (all-purpose or almond flour for a gluten-free option)
  • 1/2 cup milk (dairy or plant-based)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 cup buffalo sauce
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter or olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish
  • Ranch or blue cheese dressing for dipping

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, milk, garlic powder, onion powder, and smoked paprika to create a smooth batter.
  3. Dip each cauliflower floret into the batter, allowing any excess to drip off, and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender and the coating is crispy, flipping the florets halfway through.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix the buffalo sauce and melted butter or olive oil.
  6. Toss the baked cauliflower bites in the buffalo sauce mixture until evenly coated.
  7. Return the coated cauliflower to the baking sheet and bake for an additional 10 minutes for that perfect, saucy finish.
  8. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and chopped parsley before serving. Pair with your favorite ranch or blue cheese dressing for a cool contrast.
