How to make Buffalo Cauliflower Dip
Fire up your oven and let it fully preheat. Toss the cauliflower in a bowl with the oil and some salt until everything is evenly coated. Arrange it on a pan and roast it in the oven until it is nice and golden brown.
Transfer the cauliflower to a large skillet and add in the buffalo sauce and cream cheese. Warm up the cream cheese, whisking until it melts. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and allow it to simmer until the sauce begins to thicken.
Remove the mixture from the heat and slowly add the cheese until it melts into the sauce. Add in the sour cream and remaining salt and stir to combine.
This step is optional, but you can now transfer the sauce to a baking dish and pop it back into the oven until bubbly.
Garnish the finished dip with green onions, dip away, and enjoy!
Top Tips for making the BEST Buffalo Cauliflower Dip
- Use Sour Cream: Although you can use yogurt as a substitute for sour cream, I recommend using sour cream as it gives the dip more zingy flavor that compliments the buffalo sauce.
- Chop the cauliflower small: I recommend ensuring that the cauliflower florets are nice and small for the best overall texture.
- Make sure the cauliflower is tender: Be careful to cook the cauliflower long enough so that each floret is nice and tender.
- Thicken it up: Be sure to thicken up the sauce before baking, but not TOO much!
Buffalo Cauliflower Dip Serving Suggestions
This cauliflower dip is PERFECT for those game day get togethers, or for anytime at all, really! I recommend serving this dip with your favorite crackers or chips, or potentially some sliced french bread or soft pitas! Another fun combination would be to serve this dip with air fryer potato chips. Whatever way you decide, it will be absolutely delicious!
