If you want to make our spicy cauliflower bites, look no further than our easy to make recipe. Perfect as a side, snack or starter everyone will love these oven-roasted cauliflower bites.

What you'll need:

  • 1 tbsp sweet smoked paprika
  • 1⁄2 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 100g plain flour
  • 200ml buttermilk (See recipe for how to make your own, with 200ml milk & 1tbsp lemon or vinegar)
  • 1 head of cauliflower (500g), broken into florets
  • 80g hot sauce of choice 
  • 1½ tbsp SPAR honey
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • celery sticks, to serve


For the ranch dip

  • 100g Greek yogurt
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp chopped chives
  • 1-2 tbsp milk


  1. Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7 and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  2. If you are making the buttermilk- mix 200ml milk and 1tbsp lemon juice in a jug. Leave at room temperature for 5-10mins until milk has thickened slightly. Don’t worry if the mixture looks curdled or has small white lumps in it, it will be fine once cooked.
  3. Once your butter milk is complete, mix together the paprika, cumin, garlic powder, flour and ½ tsp salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and whisk in the buttermilk. Tip in the cauliflower and toss to coat. Spread out the cauliflower on the baking tray and cook for 20-25 mins, turning halfway through, until crisp at the edges.
  4. Warm the hot sauce, honey and butter in a small pan set over low heat, for 2-3 mins. Liberally brush over the cauliflower and put back in the oven for 8-10 mins.
  5. For the ranch dip, whisk together the yogurt, mayo, chives, milk and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Serve the with the cauliflower alongside some celery sticks for dipping.
