I love this vegetarian recipe blog, The Curvy Carrot. Seems my favorite pins for creative veggie recipes are always coming from this site. And this post is about one in particular … Buffalo Cauliflower.
As you know, I’m pregnant, and about every other month so far, I crave the pungent, mouth-watering flavor of buffalo sauce. I fed my craving wings the first week I was preggo on vacay in Destin … so good! Then, a few weeks later, I got a hankering for Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and a delectable buffalo chicken sandwich at a local place here in Little Rock. Twenty-one weeks in (this is a belated post, as I’m at 25 weeks now) … buffalo was calling my name again. However, for the sake of not feeding this baby any more unhealthy snacks … well … fewer unhealthy snacks … I hopped onto Pinterest and searched “healthy buffalo recipes” … and I found this one for Buffalo Cauliflower.
I modified it, of course … because I didn’t have everything in the house, and it turned out to be a PASS.
Here’s how I made my version:
I didn’t have enough flour, so I used corn bread mix instead. Worked out OK, but I do wonder what the flour version would’ve been like.
Toss the cauliflower into the mixture. Spread out onto a baking sheet and bake.
Mix up the sauce while the cauliflower bakes.
Toss the cauliflower in the sauce mixture and bake some more.
THE END RESULT
Although they were good, you really can’t eat all that many of them. I should count that as a good thing, something to make these an even healthier snack. I would make them again, but I’d use more buffalo sauce, I’d make homemade ranch to go with, and I’d use flour instead of the corn bread mix. Still…
OMG YUM! I love buffalo sauce and cauliflower – and it seems so easy too! Thanks for sharing sweetheart!
Thanks! It was yummy. I’m making zucchini chips next!
I make a simple version of these that I am so, so addicted to! The “batter” is equal parts whole wheat flour and water (I usually do 1 cup each). Then sprinkle in some garlic powder to your liking. Cook for 20 minutes at 450 degrees, then take out of the oven. Cover with hot sauce and olive oil mixed, then pop them back into the oven for 5 minutes! And done 🙂
I highly suggest trying it with flour – you may find you can have a larger serving without the filling cornmeal topping!
Good tip! Sounds a lot easier and healthier.
Can’t wait to try!
