Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

I have been consistently  craving spicy food during this pregnancy.  Since a lot of spicy food translates into deep-fried or high-fat, I decided I wanted something healthy yet spicy to snack on. My first thought of  was that cauliflower was not going to satisfy my craving, however I was pleasantly surprised. Hope you enjoy (guilt-free) as well!


6 cups of fresh cauliflower florets
2 teaspoons garlic powder
a pinch of salt
a pinch of pepper
1 tablespoon butter, melted
¾ cup Frank’s RedHot hot sauce

1.Preheat oven to 450 degrees and place cauliflower on a baking sheet greased with cooking oil or olive oil.
2.Sprinkle garlic powder, salt, and pepper over the cauliflower florets.
3.Bake for 20 minutes.
4.Combine the melted butter and hot sauce into a small bowl and pour over the cauliflower.
5. Bake for an additional 5 minutes.
6 .Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing along with carrots and celery sticks.

    This looks so good! My mom makes a recipie along the lines of this as a substitute for mashed potatoes – she mashes up a head of cauliflower and whips it up with some sour cream and cheese, and it’s basically cheesy potatoes without the carb overload. Definitly my favorite healthy swap=)
