Buffalo Cauliflower


Here's another baked savory snack which is vegetarian, gluten-free and sugar-free. This is adapted from a Forks Over Knives recipe, with some quicknhealthy changes :-). This recipe needs to be served immediately and hence not ideal for a pot luck or for making ahead. I still need to figure out how to break down the prep/cooking process so that we can make this ahead of time. As soon as I figure it out, I will update it here. If anyone has suggestions, please comment below. Having said that, I suggest you have this fresh and it is just awesome.

Ingredients:
  • Large head of cauliflower - 1
  • Rice flour - 2/3rd cup (white or brown works fine)
  • Almond powder - 2 Tbsp 
  • Tomato - 1 small
  • Garlic - 2 cloves
  • Paprika - 2 tsp
  • Homemade Sriracha/ hot sauce - 1/3rd cup

Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 450 deg F
  • Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper
  • Blend rice flour, almond powder, tomato, garlic and paprika with 2/3rd cup of water into a thick smooth paste
  • Cut cauliflower into 2-inch florets.Toss them with the paste to coat evenly.
  • Arrange in baking trays.
  • Bake at 450 oven for 25 minutes
  • Take out and keep for 3 more minutes before adding the Sriracha or hot sauce.
  • Add sriracha and toss to coat evenly. (if you are not serving immediately, hold off on tossing with the sauce till you are ready to serve)
  • Serve with your favorite dip. 
  • Makes 6-8 servings. Enjoy!

Homemade Sriracha Sauce:
  • Red chilly powder -1 Tbs.
  • Paprika -1 Tbs.
  • Garlic clove - 2 (finely grated) 
  • Apple cider vinegar - 2 Tbs
  • Freshly squeezed lemon juice - 4 Tbs
  • Cold pressed sesame oil - 2 Tbs
  • Sea salt - 1 tsp
  • Whisk everything together in a small bowl (or if you are making a bigger batch you can use a blender) 
  • This makes about 1/2 cup of sauce.

Spinach Yogurt dip:
  • Yogurt-1/2 cup
  • Almond powder - 1/2 cup
  • Garlic - 1-2 cloves
  • Spinach- 2 handfuls
  • Green chilly - 1-2
  • Sea salt - as per taste
  • Process everything in food processor to make a coarse textured dip.
