Weak in the knees for chicken wings?
Here's a healthier alternative if you're looking for a delicious side dish for dinner or just as a healthy snack. Made these Saturday and they were a HUGE hit.
Buffalo Cauliflower Bites with Blue Cheese
Ingredients: - ½ cup low-fat (1%) plain yogurt - 2 Tbsp. crumbled blue cheese - Nonstick cooking spray - 6 cups cauliflower florets - ½ tsp sea salt (or Himalayan salt), divided use - ½ cup hot pepper sauce - ⅓ cup rice vinegar - 1 Tbsp. potato starch or tapioca powder - 2 tsp. ground chili powder - ¼ tsp. ground smoked paprika - ½ tsp. garlic powder - ½ tsp. onion powder - 1 tsp. pure maple syrup - 1 tsp. olive oil
Instructions: 1. Preheat oven to 350° F. 2. Combine yogurt and cheese in a small bowl; mix well. Refrigerate until needed. 3. Lightly coat large baking sheet with spray. 4. Place cauliflower florets on baking sheet. Coat cauliflower lightly with spray. Season evenly with ¼ tsp. salt. 5. Bake for 20 minutes, or until tender-crisp. 6. While cauliflower is baking, combine hot sauce, rice vinegar, and potato starch in medium saucepan; whisk until starch is dissolved. 7. Add chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, maple syrup, oil, and remaining ¼ tsp. salt; whisk to blend. 8. Heat hot sauce mixture over medium-high heat; cook, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes, or until thickened. Set aside. 9. Remove cauliflower from the oven and toss with sauce. (I usually remove some to give my kids as they aren't sauce lovers) 10. Return cauliflower to oven. Bake for 5-10 minutes. 11. Serve hot with dip on the side.
