  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400°F. 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 oil or ghee.
  • 3
    Dip cauliflower florets into the oil. Sprinkle with the remaining 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, lemon juice, Greek yogurt and almond milk until smooth and creamy. Serve the avocado dipping sauce with the bacon-wrapped cauliflower after they have slightly cooled.
