BBQ Cauliflower Bites

BBQ Cauliflower Bites

Cauliflower is part of the wonderful cruciferous vegetable family. That means it is great for you! It is packed with Vitamin C, and Vitamin K.  It is also a great detox food, and is loaded with antioxidants.  So eat your cauliflower!
There are lots of recipes out there for Buffalo Cauliflower.  I wanted to change it up a bit and go with a BBQ flavor.  These Cauliflower Bites are a great low calorie option.  They are a great snack when you are hanging out watching sports.  They are also a potluck favorite.  You can use any type of BBQ sauce you like.  Of course, we make sure it's vegan!

What You Need
·         1/2 a Head of Cauliflower
·         1 Cup of Flour
·         1 Cup of Non Dairy Milk
·         1 Teaspoon of Garlic Powder
·         1 Teaspoon of Onion Powder
·         1/2 Teaspoon of Paprika
·         1/2 Teaspoon of Brown Sugar
·         1/2 Teaspoon of Liquid Smoke (optional)
·         1 Cup of BBQ Sauce

What You Do
Preheat oven to 450F.  Cut cauliflower into thin strips about 1/2 inch wide, and 2 -3 inches long.  Mix flour, non dairy milk, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, brown sugar, and liquid smoke together in a bowl.  Dip cauliflower pieces in flour mixture, making sure to coat the entire piece.
Place cauliflower pieces onto a non stick baking sheet, or sheet coated with cooking spray.  Place in oven for 15 minutes.

While cauliflower is cooking, heat BBQ sauce in a sauce pan.  Remove cauliflower pieces from oven and dip in BBQ sauce. Place pieces back on baking sheet and cook for 5 more minutes.  Remove from oven, serve and enjoy!
