Cauliflower Bites with Creamy Dipping Sauce


These are addictive. You’ll keep taking just one more… A healthful alternative to heavy-carb dishes at a Chanukah party. Yields 25 bites


Prepare the Cauliflower Bites

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius).
2. Line a nine- by 13-inch (20- by 30-centimeter) baking pan with Gefen Parchment Paper. Spray with oil spray and set aside.
3. Place cauliflower florets in a large bowl and sprinkle with a little lemon juice.
4. Pour boiling water over the cauliflower and let it sit for three to four minutes. Drain well.
5. Place in a food processor with the knife attachment. Add onion, egg, bread crumbs, olive oil, and seasonings. Blend together well, but don’t overprocess. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.
6. Prepare a plate with bread crumbs. Form the mixture into small balls (ping-pong size) and roll gently in bread crumbs.
7. Place in baking pan. Spray with additional olive oil spray.
8. Bake for 30 minutes or until crispy. If desired, turn the balls and bake an additional 10 minutes. Serve hot with dipping sauce.

Prepare the Dipping Sauce

1. Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl.
2. Taste and adjust if desired. An immersion blender is helpful to achieve a creamy texture. Can be made a few days in advance.


To make these a bit more flavorful, add a pinch of oregano or a handful of fresh/dry parsley to the cauliflower mix or to the crumbs. Also, you can sub almond flour for part of the bread crumbs.
