Happy New Year, I hope your year has started off well! I am not big on New Year’s resolutions, but I did make a goal to add more veggies into my family’s diet this year.  So, I had a little fun experimenting in the kitchen this week, after my kids asked for some buffalo wings to accompany our weekly pizza night. I was thinking about my recipe for Cauliflower Pizza and Cauliflower Steak…and thought why not? So, I made some Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower with Healthy Ranch Dip. It turned out great and satisfied the need for a bit of spice without all the grease & fat!

This is super easy to put together. In a small bowl combine the Dijon mustard, lemon juice, dried dill and garlic powder together. Add this  combo to the Greek yogurt. Chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes, then serve with roasted buffalo cauliflower.

Can I store the Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower?

This is really best made right before it is going to be served. If there are leftovers, they could be stored in the refrigerator covered with plastic wrap for 1 to 2 days. However, the cauliflower will lose it’s crispiness.
