Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Serves 4 


1 medium cauliflower

½ cup potato starch for gluten free

½ cup water

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper


⅔ cup vegan margarine

2 teaspoons hot sauce, more if you want spicier 

2 teaspoons honey or 2 teaspoons vinegar

  (depending if you want more sweet or more tangy!)

½ teaspoon garlic powder

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice



  1. Preheat oven to 425°F; line baking tray with parchment paper.

  2. Cut cauliflower into small florets.

  3. Stir together potato starch and water in mixing bowl to make what is called a slurry. Stir in salt and pepper. Dip cauliflower in slurry to coat and place on baking tray. Place in oven for 20 minutes, turning cauliflower after 10 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, cook margarine in small saucepan over medium heat until melted; stir in hot sauce, honey or vinegar, garlic powder and lime juice. Reduce to low simmer. Cook for 3-4 minutes and remove from burner. 

  5. Once cauliflower is cooked for 20 minutes, remove from oven. Brush sauce onto cauliflower bits; return to oven for another 25 minutes or until cauliflower is browned. 

  6. Serve immediately.

  7. To reheat: Cauliflower Bites taste the best when right from the oven. If you want to make ahead of time and reheat, reheat in an oven or toaster oven to keep that crispness. 

  8. Serve with cut up celery sticks and your favorite dip.


TIP: Double the sauce for dipping.

Buttery: Use butter in place of vegan margarine.  This make the recipe vegetarian and not vegan.
