Buffalo Cauliflower ‘Wings’

Buffalo Cauliflower Wings

Cauliflower is officially one of the most versatile veggies! From cauliflower mashed potatoes to pizza crust to… you guessed it — WINGS! My sister made these for NYE awhile back and I’m pretty sure I ate the majority. 🙂 Compared to your traditional buffalo wings, this version slashes the calories and fat.

[A medium-sized order of B-Dubs traditional wings will run you 1,000 calories and 57 grams of fatthat’s without any sauces, seasonings or blue cheese dip. One serving of cauliflower wings contains just 120 calories and less than 5 grams of fat.]

Any time you can include more plants in your diet, you’re doing yourself a favor. For instance, cruciferous veggies (like cauliflower) have a component called sulforaphane, which has numerous health benefits – including being an anticancer agent.

Nutrition facts aside, these ‘wings’ taste delicious!

Recipe Notes

This is a vegan recipe if you opt for a vegan butter, like I did. I used this one: Earth Balance Soy-Free Buttery Spread.

I’ve been meaning to share this recipe for awhile. Let me know if you give it a try!
