Buffalo Dip

I know what you’re thinking, another buffalo chicken dip, right? Well, kinda. More like a chicken less and cheese less buffalo dip. Yes, I said no cheese. This is a dairy free recipe.

From time to time, I like to give my body a rest from dairy to allow my digestive system a little break. I still get plenty of calcium, and I actually get it from its original source……..vegetables and fruit. Here’s a few of my favorite calcium rich foods:

  • Spinach, Kale, Sweet Potatoes, Butternut Squash, Brussel Sprouts, Celery
  • Oranges/Tangerines, Dried Figs, Dates, Kiwi, Lemons/Limes, Raspberries/Blackberries

Okay, on to the recipe. This is really a guilt-free recipe, so eat as much as you want. I DO!

  • 2 heads of cauliflower
  • 3 Tablespoons of ghee (go here for the recipe). You can also use a healthy oil (NOT Canola or Vegetable), but I personally like the taste of the ghee.
  • 1/2 cup of Franks Hot Sauce (my favorite) *You can adjust the heat by adding more or less.*
  • Olive oil for pan (Be careful if using spray oils. Look for sprayers without propellants or buy a spray bottle that you fill with a healthy oil like olive or avocado oil.)
  • season with Sea Salt (optional)

Cut your cauliflower into large chunks. Wash, drain, and air dry cauliflower. Once dry, place your cauliflower into a large mixing bowl.  Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.  While oven is preheating, heat up your ghee in a small saucepan. Add the hot sauce and stir until combined. Remove from heat, pour mixture over cauliflower, and stir to coat the cauliflower well.   Coat a 9×13 pan with olive oil, arrange cauliflower on pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.

At this point you could choose to plate the cauliflower bites on a plate with Dairy Free Homemade Ranch Dressing, celery sticks and carrots. Or, you can follow the next few steps to make Buffalo Cauli Dip (SOOOOOOO GOOD!).

Place roasted cauliflower in a large mixing bowl. Add 1/2 cup of Dairy Free Homemade Ranch Dressing to bowl. Get out your handy immersion blender and start pulsing the mixture until mixed well. This is where I add the Sea Salt to taste. I give it a final stir and place in a serving bowl. Add your crunchy veggies (celery and carrots) and your ready for half time!
