This oven-baked Buffalo Cauliflower is an easy, low-carb dish that are perfectly spiced. They have the loved flavors of buffalo wings without the guilt and are perfectly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Serve them along side your favorite lean protein or as healthy appetizer with your favorite ranch or blue cheese dressing.
Buffalo Cauliflower Recipe
As I have gotten older, I realize more and more that I didn’t eat a big variety of veggies growing up. Or maybe I did but they were the more Southern varieties.
Thinking about it, I can come up with field peas, black eyed peas, green beans, green peas, turnip greens, yellow squash and collards. Oh and okra! That was served but I didn’t touch it!
There was definitely no cauliflower or broccoli or asparagus or spinach or zucchini. It’s interesting. I think I need to have a conversation with my mother.
I love all vegetables!! Now that cauliflower has become all the rave, I have it so much more than ever.
I usually opt for my favorite Balsamic Roasted Cauliflower but this week I got bold and decided to spice it up with some buffalo sauce.
