  • 1 teaspoon each of ground cumin & smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Couple cracks fresh black pepper
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 head of cauliflower cut in large bite sized florets

Sriracha buffalo sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil or unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup sriracha sauce or any hot sauce you like
  • Zest of half a lime
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

Yogurt Sauce:

  • ½ cup greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp chives chopped
  • 3-4 tbsp crumbled blue cheese
  • 1-2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp of orange zest and 1 tbsp juice
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest and 1 tbsp juice
  • ½ tspn kosher salt
  • ¼ tspn fresh cracked pepper


  1. For the buffalo cauliflower, pre-heat oven to 425 F degrees and spray a sheet pan with cooking spray. Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Add the water to the bowl and whisk well, adding more water until the consistency is loose and slightly runny. Add one third of the cauliflower to the batter and coat evenly. Shake off all excess batter and place cauliflower on the greased sheet pan. Repeat with remaining cauliflower and bake for 20 minutes, or until the crust has become solid.
  2. Meanwhile, make the buffalo sauce by adding all the ingredients to a small pot set over medium heat. Cook for five minutes and whisk a few times so everything comes together. Check for seasoning, you will probably need to add a little more honey to balance out the spice
  3. For the blue cheese sauce, add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix well. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  4. Take cauliflower out of the oven and place in a large bowl. Pour over enough sriracha sauce to coat the cauliflower and toss to combine, adding more sauce if necessary. Place back on the sheet pan and bake for another 20-25 minutes, or until the coating is set. Remove from oven and set aside. Store the cauliflower bites in the fridge for up to 3 days, you can’t freeze them.

  1. These cauliflower bits are awesome! Soooo delicious! I ‘ve made them like 6 times in 2-3 weeks.

    I’ve used only white rice flour, but I would like to know whether I can use brown rice flour instead.

    Thanks for an awesome recipe!
