Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

It is football Sunday and football Sunday calls for snacks, right?  I used to  like Buffalo wings.  Actually, it was never the actual wings as much as the sauce... I just love that spicy, tangy sauce. Messy eating at its best. I have not had anything in that sort of sauce in years, it's time!

I stumbled across this recipe a while ago and it has been on my list of things to try. Given I had a head of cauliflower in the fridge that really needed to be used and its a football Sunday I figured I would give it a shot.

Wow! Served with some home made vegan ranch and celery sticks this is some good stuff!

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

For the bites:
1 head cauliflower cut into bite size chunks
1 cup non dairy milk (I used So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut)
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp garlic powder
3/4 cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce
1/4 cup Tabasco Sauce
1 tbsp melted vegan butter

Ranch Dressing:
1/2 cup vegan mayo
2 tbsp non dairy milk (I used So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp dried dill
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Put the non dairy milk, flour and garlic powder in a bowl and whisk together until a thick batter forms.  Place the cauliflower pieces in a bowl and toss to coat well.  Place coated cauliflower on a baking sheet and bake for 18 minutes.

While cauliflower is in the oven mix the Franks Red Hot sauce, Tabasco sauce and melted butter. Stir.

Once the cauliflower has cooked for 18 minutes pour sauce on top, toss gently to coat and place back in the oven for about 5 minutes.

To make the ranch dressing simply mix all ingredients together in a bowl and whisk until smooth.
