Are you a vegetarian but still feel that big gulp of saliva fill your throat when someone beside you pulls out a buffalo wing? Well you’re in luck!

Just in case you previously had a phobia for cauliflower, after tasting this creative recipe, you would be noticing patriotic instincts when it comes to this.

Crispy on the outside yet soft on the inside, these cauliflower bites are the closest a vegetarian can get to a ‘real’ buffalo wing.

Use your favorite hot sauce for a nice kick; it offers a boost of vitamin C and capsaicin, and both have been shown to assist in revving up your metabolism!

INGREDIENTS

1 medium head cauliflower, chopped into bite-size pieces
1/2 cup garbanzo bean flour
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon melted butter or ghee
2/3 cup hot sauce

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 450ºF. In a medium-sized bowl, combine flour, water, garlic powder, and salt. Whisk together until smooth.

  2. Toss cauliflower into garbanzo batter, making sure to coat each piece completely, then place battered cauliflower on a lightly greased, nonstick baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, tossing halfway through.

  3. In the meantime, combine melted butter and hot sauce in a large bowl, regularly stirring. When cauliflower is done, remove it from the oven and gently toss it in the hot sauce mixture. Place cauliflower back on the baking sheet and cook for an additional 25 minutes until it becomes crispy. Allow cauliflower to cool for 15 minutes before serving.
