Buffalo Cauliflower

One of the unhealthy things I inherited from my grandmother was her deep fryer—and I used to use it a lot, mostly to make buffalo wings. Now I want a healthier snack but I still love that hot spicy sauce—I just want it without the added oil, and I really don’t want the wings. Buffalo Cauliflower Bites do the trick! They are full of flavor and spice without all the bad stuff.


1/2 cup water
1/4 cup almond butter
1/2 cup red hot sauce, plus extra for tossing with the cooked bites
3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 1/2 tablespoons granulated garlic
1 large head cauliflower, cut into 1-inch florets (about 6 cups)


Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Combine everything but the cauliflower in a large bowl. Mix well. Add the cauliflower florets and toss to coat well.

Place the coated florets on a nonstick baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Toss with extra red hot sauce if desired.
