Toss 8 cups of cauliflower florets in olive oil, salt and pepper, spread on a lined cookie sheet, and roast in a preheated 400 degree Fahrenheit oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Toss the roasted cauliflower in a classic Buffalo sauce consisting of 1/4 cup of hot sauce, 2 tablespoons of melted butter and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Serve with a prepared or homemade blue cheese or ranch sauce.
An alternative method of preparation for Buffalo cauliflower bites involves breading cauliflower florets using seasoned batter. The seasoned batter consists of 3/4 cup of gluten-free baking flour, 1 cup of water, 1/2 teaspoon garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix all ingredients, and dip the cauliflower florets in the mixture, covering them completely. Spread the vegetables on a greased cookie sheet, and bake in a preheated 450 degree Fahrenheit oven for 20 to 25 minutes, turning halfway through the cooking time.
Brush homemade Buffalo sauce on the cauliflower bites to ensure the breading doesn't fall off of the vegetables. The healthy snack may be enjoyed at this stage or placed back in the oven to continue to cook for 10 minutes. This ensures the sauce is thoroughly absorbed into the breading.
