Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

I have been on a Buffalo chicken kick lately. I love anything with Buffalo sauce on it. Well, man cannot live on Buffalo chicken alone, or so I am told. So, Buffalo cauliflower bites to the rescue! Yep, that same great Buffalo flavor and cool dressing for dipping, all in a healthy bite.

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

I like to finish these Buffalo cauliflower bites off on the grill to get a little char on it, but that’s really not necessary. You can make the entire dish in the oven in no time at all.

Also try my cauliflower nachos. Yeah, nachos made from cauliflower! Genius!
