Buffalo Cauliflower

Buffalo Cauliflower

So, I have been seeing various recipes for Buffalo Cauliflower out on the interwebs lately. I tried two different versions, a roasted version and an oven-baked battered version. I preferred the battered version. It’s easy to make too! It might be my new favorite way to eat cauliflower. I included instructions on how to prepare the roasted version at the bottom of the recipe. It’s perfect for those on a gluten-free diet.

Battered Buffalo Cauliflower

1 head cauliflower, wash and dried, separated into florets
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup water
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon oil

1/4 cup Frank’s hot sauce
2 tablespoons butter, melted
pinch of salt

celery
bleu cheese dressing (or ranch dressing)

Preheat the oven to 450° F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.

Combine the flour, water, and salt in a large bowl. Add the cauliflower florets and mix to coat. Using tongs, place the battered cauliflower on the prepared baking sheet. Throw out any left-over batter. Bake at 450° F for 20 minutes or until the batter becomes crispy and golden. I flip the cauliflower halfway so that it browns evenly.

Meanwhile, combine melted butter, Frank’s hot sauce, and salt in a large bowl. When the cauliflower is done baking, add it to the sauce and toss to coat. Serve the Buffalo Cauliflower with bleu cheese dressing and celery sticks.

Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower

1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste

1/4 cup Frank’s hot sauce
2 tablespoons butter, melted
pinch of salt

celery
bleu cheese dressing (or ranch dressing)

Preheat the oven to 450° F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.

In a bowl, toss the cauliflower florets with the olive oil, salt, and pepper and mix to coat. Place the cauliflower on the prepared baking sheet and bake at 450° F for 15 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender and golden. I flip the cauliflower halfway so that it roasts evenly.

Meanwhile, combine melted butter, Frank’s hot sauce, and salt in a large bowl. When the cauliflower is done roasting, add it to the sauce and toss to coat. Serve the Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower with bleu cheese dressing and celery sticks.
