Paleo Bacon-Wrapped Cauliflower

Calling all paleo people: This is your new favorite appetizer! Peppery bacon-wrapped spicy cauliflower bites with a honey-glaze.

Ingredients

4
cups cauliflower florets
1
cup butter, ghee or coconut oil, melted
1
tablespoon paprika
2
teaspoons onion powder
1
teaspoon garlic powder
1
teaspoon red pepper flakes
12
slices peppered bacon
1/2
cup raw and unfiltered honey
2
ripe avocados, pitted and peeled
1
lemon, freshly squeezed
3/4
cup Yoplait® Greek 100 plain yogurt (optional)
1/3
cup plain almond milk

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 2 In a small bowl, mix together paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes. Stir 1 tablespoon of this mixture into the melted butter.
  • 3 Dip cauliflower florets into the butter. Sprinkle with paprika mixture.
  • 4 Cut bacon in half and lengthwise to create strips that are approximately 4x1-inch.
  • 5 Wrap one bacon strip around dipped cauliflower. Secure with a toothpick. Place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all cauliflower is wrapped in bacon. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender and the bacon begins to brown around the edges.
  • 6 Meanwhile, blend together the avocados, lemons juice, Yoplait™ yogurt and almond milk until smooth and creamy. Allow cauliflower to cool slightly. Serve with avocado dipping sauce. Enjoy!

Peppery bacon-wrapped spicy cauliflower bites with a honey-glaze.

Calling all paleo people: This is your new favorite appetizer!

Hey, cavekids. You’ve made cauliflower all the rage. Congrats! This previously “meh” veggie has reached new levels of awesomeness this year thanks to paleo eaters, and we’re digging it. We’ve seen big, white flowerheads of cauli making their way into paleo pizza crust, paleo garlic breadsticks, and paleo fried rice. Turns out, cauliflower is way more fun to eat when you’re cooking like a caveman.

And this recipe keeps proving this deliciously hot trend right. These bright red bites are the ultra app for everything from game night parties to Grok nights in. A little spicy. A little sweet. A bit of bacon. A whole lotta tasty cauliflower.

Whether you’re a food fanatic or just looking for a fun way to twist up your party cocktail plates, holy cavepants. These.

Here’s how to make a whole plate of paleo love.

Start by dipping your cauliflower in a happy little mélange of flavor. Melted butter or ghee (or coconut oil, if you prefer) gets spiked with a bright red spice mixture and then slathered all over a batch of cauli florets.

Now it’s time to get your fingers a little messy. Bacon wrap that dipped cauliflower, pierce in place with a toothpick, and pop on a piece of parchment. This is the sort of thing that would make Grok proud.

But first—a drizzle of shimmering raw honey to glaze your bacon-wrapped bombs. This finishing touch is sublime. Trust me. I’ve already eaten an entire batch of these things.

While your cauliflower is roasting itself to tender perfection, it’s time to put the perfect paleo finishing touches on this recipe. The only thing that could possibly make these spicy primal morsels tastier is a cool and creamy avocado dipping sauce. So, boom. Blend it up.

As soon as they come out of the oven, let them cool ever so slightly, then serve them straightaway.

Hunt, gather, bite, be merry. This is what eating like a caveman is all about!
