Buffalo Cauliflower Bites (www. ourlifetastesgood.com)

Cooking spray,3/4 cup all-purpose flour,1 cup Silk Soymilk,1 teaspoon garlic powder,1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
1 head of cauliflower, cut into bite-sized pieces, 3 tablespoons dairy-free butter,1 (5 ounce) bottle cayenne pepper sauce,1 tablespoon honey

Preheat oven to 450°F and line a baking sheet with foil. Place an oven-safe rack on top of the foil and spray generously with cooking spray.

Prepare the batter for the cauliflower by combining 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, 1 cup Silk Soymilk, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, & 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper. Whisk until smooth and thickened. Gently toss the cauliflower with the batter, being sure to coat the cauliflower thoroughly.

Place the coated cauliflower onto the prepared rack, being sure to leave space between each one. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until the cauliflower starts to brown.

While the cauliflower is baking, melt 3 tablespoons dairy-free butter and mix with 1 (5 ounce) bottle of cayenne pepper sauce and 1 tablespoon honey. Whisk to combine. Give it a taste and adjust the flavors to your liking. When the cauliflower is ready, remove it from the oven and toss with the hot sauce mixture.

Spray the rack with cooking spray again and place the cauliflower back on the rack. Put back in the oven for 10 more minutes until browned to your liking. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly.
