Directions

Preheat oven to 425˚F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper with ½ c water until combined.

Add cauliflower florets to the bowl and toss with the flour mixture until cauliflower is well coated. Transfer cauliflower onto the sheet pan in a single layer and bake for 20 minutes.

While cauliflower bites are baking, place a small saucepot over medium low heat and add butter and hot sauce. Cook for 3-4 minutes, whisking the ingredients together as the butter melts. Once melted, reduce heat to low to keep warm.

Remove the bites from the oven and add to a large bowl. Pour buffalo sauce over the bites and toss to thoroughly coat in sauce. Place back onto the sheet pan in a single layer. Bake for another 20 minutes, flipping once halfway through cooking.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together yogurt, mayonnaise, blue cheese and lemon juice until combined. Transfer mixture to a small serving bowl to serve with the finished cauliflower. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Let cauliflower rest on the sheet pan for 1 minute before transferring to a serving platter. Garnish with green onions and serve with the blue cheese dipping sauce.
