Buffalo Cauliflower Bites – Get the napkins ready because game day just went Vegan! Frosty adult beverages optional.
Cauliflower is simply amazing, isn’t it?
Like these Buffalo Wings.
Slightly sweet, super sticky, and with just enough kick to make you stand up and take notice.
When my daughter tasted this sauce I swear the first words out of her mouth were ‘OMG’. Is that even a word? Whatever, I do know that’s usually a VERY good sign
These little guys are absolutely perfect for movie night, the big game, or just for snackin’.
I hope you like them as much as we do.
Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites
Take a head of cauliflower and break it up into bite sized pieces.
We’re going to use the same batter as my Orange Chicken Recipe – so mix a cup of flour with a cup of Almond Milk and 2 tsp of Garlic Powder. I also like to add a teaspoon or two of Apple Cider Vinegar to get more of a buttermilk flavor.
Add salt and pepper to taste – it should be like a pancake batter.
Once your batter comes together, drop in your cauliflower pieces and stir to coat evenly. Lay them on a baking sheet (I highly recommend parchment paper) and bake for 15-20 minutes at 450 degrees F.
For the sauce – in a small saucepan mix 1/2 cup of your favorite Ketchup, 1/4 cup of Sriracha Hot Sauce, 1 Tablespoon of Red Wine Vinegar, 1 Tablespoon of Maple Syrup, 1 tsp of Soy Sauce, and a pinch or two of ground cumin.
When that starts to simmer, turn off the heat and let it cool until the cauliflower bites finish baking. Then dump in the cauliflower and stir to coat evenly.
Redistribute the cauliflower on your baking sheet and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes.
