A big part of watching any sporting event is the food that goes along with it. The only problem is that, though the food is usually amazing, it generally isn’t very good for you. This recipe offers an alternative to traditional not-so-healthy party food by replacing wings with *gasp* vegetables! Trust us though, once you try these cauliflower bites, you won’t want to serve anything else.

BUFFALO CAULIFLOWER BITES

WHAT YOU NEED

  • 1 cup white rice flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut in bite size pieces

Sriracha Sauce:

  • 3 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sriracha, or any hot sauce you like
  • Zest of one lime
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Greek Yogurt Blue Cheese Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoon chives, chopped
  • 3-4 tablespoon crumbled blue cheese
  • 1-2 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon of orange zest and 1 tbsp juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest and 1 tbsp juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper

WHAT YOU DO

  1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees and spray a sheet pan with cooking spray.
  2. Combine the first 8 ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Add water to the bowl and mix batter until it’s well incorporated and thin.
  4. Dump the cauliflower into the batter and coat evenly.
  5. Shake off excess batter and place cauliflower on greased sheet pan.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the crust has become solid.
  7. Make the sriracha sauce by putting all the ingredients in a small pot over medium heat.
  8. Cook until the butter has melted, check for seasoning and take off heat. You will probably need to add a little more lime juice or honey.
  9. Take cauliflower out of the oven after a crust has formed, and gently place in a large bowl.
  10. Pour over half of the sriracha sauce and toss to combine, adding more sauce if necessary.
  11. Place back in the pan, and bake for another 15-25 minutes until crispy.
  12. For the blue cheese sauce, add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix well. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
