Ranch Cauliflower Bites are a healthy snack idea. When dipped in ketchup, they taste like french fries.
It feels like it has been a long week and I am excited that we have a holiday weekend! We are going to be spending time with friends. Nothing big is planned. We just want to spend time relaxing before school starts next week. Before the weekend starts, I wanted to share a recipe for a healthy snack. I first saw the recipe for cauliflower poppers from Lindsay at Delighted Momma. I’ve made them a couple of times, adding various spices and they are so good! The last time I made them I decided to add powdered ranch mix to make Ranch Cauliflower Bites in a ranch oyster crackers style recipe.
Cut one head of cauliflower into large pieces. They will shrink as they bake. The first time I made cauliflower bites, I made the pieces too small. Toss with olive oil. Put cauliflower pieces in a pan lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with 1/2 tablespoon of powdered ranch, dill weed, salt, pepper and garlic. Stir to coat. Spray with cooking oil and sprinkle with an additional 1/2 tablespoon of powdered ranch.
Bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees. Remove from oven, spray with cooking oil and sprinkle with final 1/2 tablespoon of powdered ranch. Bake for an additional 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and enjoy the Ranch Cauliflower Bites dipped in ketchup!
