Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups small cauliflower florets *
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 ounces reduced fat cream cheese, softened
  • 7 ounces reduced fat shredded mozzarella
  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup Frank's Hot Sauce **
  • 1/2 cup green onions, sliced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • garnish: extra green onions and crumbled blue cheese

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and line a sheet pan with foil.  Spray with cooking spray.  Also, spray a 9x9 casserole dish.
  • Toss the cauliflower in the olive oil, salt, and pepper.  Spread in one layer on the sheet pan and roast 15-20 minutes or until tender.  Don't overcook.  Turn down the oven to 350 degrees.
  • With a mixer combine the cream cheese, mozzarella, greek yogurt, and hot sauce together.  Once smooth carefully fold in the green onion, crumbled blue cheese and roasted cauliflower by hand.
  • Put the mixture in the casserole dish.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until melted.  You can pop on the broiler at the end to get the golden color.
  • Garnish with extra green onion and blue cheese.  Serve with chips, celery, and carrots.

Notes

* Make your florets small enough to easily pick up on chips.
** Adjust the amount of hot sauce to how spicy you want the dish.  I tested with 3/4 cup hot sauce which had a nice kick but not too much!  You can add as little as 1/4 cup or as much as 1 cup.
