Cauliflower Buffalo Wings

Wow! I have really fallen behind on my posts. I made these about 2 months ago after trying out a similar dish at a vegan restaurant for my friend's birthday. I am not really into vegan food, I am a Texan and we like meat! But really anything tastes delicious with Buffalo Sauce, right? These were really yummy! I won't be eating them as my main course, but they are a great appetizer or side dish for some real chicken!

Cauliflower Buffalo Wings
1 head of cauliflower, or buy it pre-chopped from TJs to make it so much easier
1 cup of milk (if you are a true vegan use water)
3/4 cup of flour
2 tsp garlic powder
1 cup of Frank's Red Hot
1 Tbsp. butter (again if you are truely vegan, use olive oil)
cooking spray
Blue Cheese or Ranch dressing (I don't know what to do for your vegans...your missing out here)

Preheat oven to 450.
Stir together flour, milk and garlic powder.
Dip each piece of cauliflower into batter. Allow excess to drip off before placing on a baking sheet.
Spray the baking sheet with cooking spray, then place the battered cauliflower on the sheet.
Spray the battered cauliflower with a light coating of cooking spray then place in the oven and bake for 18 minutes.
While they are cooking. Melt butter and mix it with the buffalo sauce.
Remove the cauliflower from the oven. The bottoms of mine burned, but the burned part easily broke off.
Maybe you won't have burned parts, my oven gets really hot!
Toss with the buffalo sauce.
Drizzle your dressing on your serving platter and then place "wings" on top of it. You can also serve the dressing on the side as a dipping sauce if you like.
