Even your most carnivorous meat-eating guests won’t be able to resist these crispy, spiced cauliflower bites. Offering the perfect balance of hearty crunch and bright, tangy sauciness, our cauli-bites are a grade-A vegetarian appetizer for entertaining, tailgating, and beyond. You can find berbere at supermarkets like Whole Foods or online; and if this Ethiopian spice blend is new to you, be prepared, you’re gonna wanna add it to everything. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare the Crispy Cauliflower: Preheat oven to 450°F. Whisk together flour, cornstarch, berbere, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk in buttermilk and egg until smooth. Add cauliflower; gently toss until completely coated with batter.

Step 2

Place panko in a shallow bowl; dredge florets until completely coated with breadcrumbs. Place coated florets on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil. Bake in preheated oven until crisp-tender, about 25 minutes, turning after 15 minutes.

Step 3

Prepare the Yogurt Sauce: Stir together yogurt, cucumber, dill, mint, garlic, lemon juice, and salt in a bowl until combined. Top with pistachios just before serving.
