From a acouplecooks.com. I never make the dip, and I just serve the cauliflower as a side. It would make a nice snack with the dip though.
- 1 head cauliflower, chopped into bite-size pieces
- 1 -2 tablespoon olive oil
- kosher salt, to taste
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup hot sauce (Frank's Red Hot is a good choice)
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 1⁄2 cup blue cheese, crumbled
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
- 1⁄8 teaspoon black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 450°F.
- In a bowl, combine the cauliflower with just enough olive oil to lightly coat the cauliflower and toss. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
- Spread the cauliflower on a baking sheet and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until browned, turning once.
- While the cauliflower roasts, make the buffalo sauce: Melt butter in a small saucepan. Add garlic. Stir together butter and garlic with hot sauce; remove from heat and set aside.
- If using, make the blue cheese dip: In a small bowl, combine yogurt, blue cheese crumbles, garlic powder, and salt & pepper.
- When the cauliflower is done, remove from the oven and mix with buffalo sauce to combine. Serve with blue cheese dip.
Made this cauliflower last night and it was quite tasty. We always prefer blue cheese dressing with hot wings and it worked perfectly with the cauliflower as well. I followed the other reviewers' comments and omitted the salt and cut back on the hot sauce. Made for PRMR, December, 2013.
Hubby really enjoyed this with the blue cheese cheese dressing...I don't care for blue cheese so I ate mine my its self...I found it on the salty side...so next time I would omit the salt...I think the red hot sauce has plenty in it...we love cauliflower so it was nice to try something different...thanks for posting it! =)
I really enjoyed this different way of eating cauliflower. I love roasted cauliflower but this took it up a notch with the hot sauce and butter. Thanks!
