Mediterranean Cauliflower “Wings”

Total Preparation/Cooking time: Prep time: 10 minutes, Cook time: 20-25 minutes
Serves:  4 (with sauce leftover). Serving size = 1 cup cauliflower; 2 T sauce
Tzatziki serving size: serves 4 with a serving size of 1/4 cup


  • 1 small – medium head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 T olive oil


  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 4 T water
  • 1 T honey
  • 4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano


  • 1 7-oz cup 2% plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 English cucumber, shredded or finely diced (and drained of excess water)
  • 3 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 small garlic clove, finely minced (or grated/pressed)
  • 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper, or to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Toss cauliflower and olive oil on a baking sheet and roast in oven for 20-25 minutes, tossing occasionally, until tender and lightly browned.
  2. Meanwhile, combine all “sauce” ingredients in a small saucepan and simmer on medium-low heat for about 5 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened.  Taste, and add more cayenne if you want it hotter (I like it with an additional ¼ tsp).
  3. Combine all “tzatziki” ingredients in a small bowl, and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. When the cauliflower is done roasting, toss it with the sauce in a large bowl until each piece is well coated.  Can be served immediately or at room temperature.  Serve with the tzatziki as a dip on the side. Enjoy!
