Buffalo Cauliflower Dip

I literally just finished making this dip and couldn't even wait one more day to share the recipe with you. We love buffalo chicken dip in our house, I make it throughout the year when we attend any potlucks or gatherings with friends and family. However, I know it's not a very figure flattering appetizer.

I spotted a healthier version on this site a few days ago through Pinterest. I also happened to have a head of cauliflower in our fridge needing used up. It just seemed right that I use it in this dip.

We really enjoyed this healthier version. I wasn't sure what the hubby might think but he keeps sneaking bites here and there. You can tell it's not the traditional buffalo dip but not in a bad way. The spicy buffalo flavor comes through very nicely and by grating the cauliflower it blends in well. Next time you're looking for a lightened up appetizer or need a vegetarian dish, keep this one in mind. I know you'll love it!

Buffalo Cauliflower Dip

2.5 c grated cauliflower (1/2 head)
1 c hot wing sauce (I like Cookie's Wings-n-Things)
8 oz. cream cheese (you could use low fat)
1/2 c plain yogurt
1/2 tsp dried parsley flakes
3/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp dill weed
3/4 c grated cheddar cheese
Tortilla chips for serving

Grate 1/2 head of cauliflower and add to a large skillet. Add in hot wing sauce and stir to combine, let cook for a few minutes until heated through. Add in cream cheese and stir until melted. Add yogurt and spices, mix well. Lastly add in cheddar cheese and stir until melted, let dip cook until heated through. Serve warm with tortilla chips or celery sticks.
