Easy Buffalo Wing Cauliflower Recipe

Sharing is caring!

 

This Buffalo Cauliflower Wings recipe is a healthy alternative to making fried chicken wings. While it is a crowd favorite during football season, it is something that I make everytime that I have guests over because it is such a crowd favorite. They can be gluten-free, vegan, or vegetarian. My favorite way to eat them is like a chicken wing dipped in ranch or blue cheese.

This buffalo wings cauliflower dish works perfectly in a buffet setting as a yummy side dish or you can make it as the main dish for vegans or vegetarians. You can also make these amazing mini overstuffed baked potatoes for your buffet.

Buffalo Cauliflower Wings {Health Benefits}

Cauliflower is an amazingly nutritious veggie.  This buffalo cauliflower wings recipe helps me forget I am eating cauliflower. I recently made this delicious Cauliflower Dessert Rice Pudding and parmesan cauliflower casserole recipe to mask the flavor.

Cauliflower has amazing cancer-fighting properties that should make it a staple in all diets. It contains something called sulforaphane, a sulfur compound that has been shown to kill cancer stem cells, thereby slowing tumor growth. Also, cauliflower is an essential source of dietary fiber for digestive health. Did you know that high fiber diets are supposed to help lower cholesterol?

Most of us need more nutrients in our body to function better. Eating cauliflower regularly is a simple way to get these much-needed nutrients into your body. For instance, one serving of cauliflower contains 77 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin C. It’s also a good source of vitamin K, protein, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, magnesium, phosphorus, fiber, vitamin B6, folate, pantothenic acid, potassium, and manganese. ***

*** I am not a doctor and cannot say that any of these health benefits are real. I have done some research and it seems that these are the health benefits, but I cannot be certain.

 

Easy Buffalo Wing Cauliflower Recipe

Start by cutting the cauliflower into pieces.

Next, arrange on a baking sheet, brush with olive oil, and bake for 15 minutes at 350 until edges start to slightly brown.

While cauliflower is cooking, mix together Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and Sriracha with the butter in a skillet. Add in cooked cauliflower, and saute over medium/high heat for 10 minutes, stirring/flipping frequently.

Then, if you feel so inclined, serve the buffalo wing cauliflower sprinkled with crumbled blue cheese or with a side of ranch or blue cheese.
