½ cup plain coconut yogurt (or soy yogurt; unsweetened)

½ teaspoon garlic powder

¼ teaspoon onion powder

¼ teaspoon dried marjoram

¼ teaspoon dried oregano

Half a 14-ounce block extra firm tofu, drained and crumbled

1Preheat the oven to 450°F . Lightly spray a 9 × 13-inch baking dish with olive oil.

2To make the cauliflower : Mix the milk, chickpea flour, cornmeal, garlic powder, and paprika in a large bowl.

3Dredge one cauliflower floret at a time in the mixture and place in the prepared baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes.

4While the cauliflower is baking, mix together the hot sauce, apple cider vinegar, tomato paste, and maple syrup in a cup or small bowl.

5Remove the cauliflower from the oven and use a spatula to loosen any florets sticking to the baking dish.

6Pour the hot sauce mixture over the cauliflower, toss to coat, and bake for 7 to 8 minutes more, until the hot sauce has thickened and caramelized.

7While the cauliflower is baking the second time, make the dip : Mix the yogurt, mayonnaise, white wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, marjoram, and oregano in a medium bowl.

8Once combined, fold in the tofu. Taste and add pepper as needed.

9Serve the cauliflower immediately with the dip. Leftovers will keep in airtight containers in the fridge for 2 to 3 days.
