Cauliflower Buffalo "Wings"


  • 1 head Cauliflower
  • 1 cup Milk
  • ¾ cups Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 2/3 cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce (I did not use nearly all of it and the wings were still REALLY spicy. Go easy!)
  • blue cheese or ranch dressing for serving

Trim the heat of cauliflower into appetizer-sized pieces. Set it aside.

In a shallow bowl stir together milk, flour and garlic powder.

Dip each piece of cauliflower into the batter and allow the extra batter to dip off. Place on a greased baking sheet. Spray the tops of the florets with cooking spray. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until tender and crisp on the outside.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Mix together melted butter and Frank’s hot sauce.

Toss cooked cauliflower pieces with sauce (start with just a bit so that you don't over sauce). Serve with a side of dressing. I had a ton of leftover batter so I threw it in the fridge and used it again the next day to make more with minimal effort. If for no other reason, try these as a new way to make and serve a very healthy vegetable that is often so boring. A great way to eat cauliflower!
