Buffalo Cauliflower Wings

Hey y’all!!

Super Bowl week continues with a vegetarian option to chicken wings.

At this point you can probably tell that I LOVE all things spicy and savory and these cauliflower bites are no exception AND they are a healthy alternative to the real thing, so it’s a win win.

My college friend, Ally Rose, introduced this recipe to me because her sister, Angela, made her a super simple recipe book for young professionals. Genius, right?

Without further ado, here they are!

What You’ll Need to Know:

This stuff is addictive, truly. Everyone in my family loved it and ate it up super quickly. If you’re running low on time, Angela suggests throwing everything into a Ziploc bag and shaking it all up. Another hack would be to go ahead and buy pre-chopped cauliflower from Trader Joe’s like I did. It keeps you from having to chop things up and waste that time. I also recommend placing the cauliflower on broil for about a minute just to brown the top. For a dipping sauce we took some non-fat plain yogurt and mix in some ranch seasoning. It made a nice ranch dip that was super low in fat and high in protein and tasted just like the real stuff.

 

Let me know if you guys try these.
