  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into bite size chunks
  • 1 cup of all purpose flower
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon of red pepper flake

Preheat oven to 450°.

Mix flour and milk together in a large mixing bowl. Add cauliflower and mix thoroughly, coating all of the pieces of cauliflower. Using a tongs, shake off the excess batter and place cauliflower chunks onto parchment-lined cookie sheet.

After 20-25 minutes, remove the cauliflower from the oven. You'll know it's done when edges start turning golden brown.

Toss cauliflower in your favorite Buffalo sauce and serve with blue cheese dressing.
