Buffalo Cauliflower Bites w/Avocado Cashew Lime Cream
Spicy cauliflower bites, perfect as a meat substitute for rice bowls or tacos.
For the Cauliflower:
¾ cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
¾ cup almond milk
1 head cauliflower
¾ cup buffalo sauce or hot sauce
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
1 tablespoon honey
For the Avocado Cashew Lime Cream
2 avocados, peeled and the pit removed
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1/4 cup cashews
¼ cup white wine vinegar
¼ cup water
2 teaspoons salt
Juice of 2 limes
¼ cup cilantro, chopped
Preheat the oven to 450˚. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, paprika, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and almond milk, whisking well,
Break the head of cauliflower into florets, about 1½-inches wide, cutting any pieces that don’t break.
Add the florets to the batter, and gently fold, making sure they are all well coated. Pour them onto the
baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes, turn them over and roast another 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in another large bowl, combine the buffalo sauce, olive oil, Worchestershire sauce, and
honey and stir until evenly combined. When the cauliflower is done, place them into the bowl with the
sauce and toss gently to combine, making sure each piece gets coated. Put them back into the oven for
2-5 minutes. Watch so they don’t burn. Serve immediately with the Avocado Cashew Lime Cream,
