Buffalo Cauliflower Bites are one of those spicy to die for yet surprisingly healthier recipes, a wonderful combination of cauliflower coated in a deliciously crispy batter, then baked and tossed in a homemade Buffalo Sauce to create a simple and delicious appetizer.
In a glass large bowl, whisk together self-rising flour, garlic powder, onion powder, kosher salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Stir in the buttermilk and water until smooth. Toss the bite-sized cauliflower in the batter until evenly coated.
Spray the metal baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Spread the battered cauliflower bites onto a pan. Try not overcrowd the pan or the cauliflower will steam become as crispy as it should. You use two metal baking sheets.
Bake cauliflower for 20 minutes.
In the meantime, combine the hot sauce and butter in a small metal saucepan on low heat until the butter melts.
Remove the cauliflower bites from the oven and toss with the hot sauce mixture.
Return the cauliflower bites to the oven for another 15-20 minutes.
Serve with Ranch dressing, celery sticks, and carrots on the side.
