These cauliflower bites are perfectly crispy, yet baked (!) with a light lemon flavor and a creamy tzatziki dipping sauce. They’re perfect for a party or an after-school snack at home.
Hello everyone! I am Kelly and I blog over at Nosh and Nourish.
I was so thankful I was able to do a guest post for Lauren while she’s recovering from surgery. Resting is hard for her, but I’m so glad she can focus on it! She and I have been on a few blogger trips together and we just “get” each other. Our blogs are similar in the types of recipes we create and our mutual love for Greek yogurt is strong! We’ve both actually written cookbooks featuring it!
- The Greek Yogurt Cookbook
- Superfoods at Every Meal (hint… Greek yogurt is one of the superfoods!)
Anyways, back to these delicious cauli bites… they are lightly battered, then baked. My hubby suggested cooking them on a wire rack over the baking sheet, so that the excess batter could drip off, rather than pool. Sometimes he has really good ideas!
And before we go, let’s talk about this tzatziki dipping sauce. Tzatziki is a weird word, I know… but it’s basically a sauce made from yogurt, cucumbers, and garlic. It’s super light and refreshing and delish!
Baked Cauliflower Bites
- For the cauliflower bites:
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 tablespoon lemon pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 head of cauliflower chopped into 1.5" pieces
- For the tzatziki sauce:
- 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/3 cup shredded cucumber I used my finest section of the grater
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Combine the batter ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.
Then, dip and cover each cauliflower piece completely.
On a parchment lined baking sheet either lay them out in a single layer, or lay them on top of wire rack over the baking sheet so that the excess batter can drip off.
Bake for 15 minutes, then flip them over and bake for another 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
Remove cauliflower from oven and enjoy immediately with the sauce!
Please go over and show my dear friend Kelly some love! Check her out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. And thank you again for this wonderful, I can’t wait to make these for my family (and ME!)
