Buffalo baked cauliflower recipe that is a great side dish or healthy snack with a kick of heat. Delicious buffalo cauliflower we can’t get enough of.
We like to have a vegetable side dish for dinner each night but traditional steamed veggies get a bit boring. Here is a great baked cauliflower recipe and our favorite zucchini recipe below too! Using a few spices and jazzing up an otherwise boring vegetable on the table is much more appealing I think, and has helped create a love of veggies in our kids too. Yes…they actually really like them! (originally published 8/16)
It looks delicious right??!!
This twist on buffalo wings turned into buffalo cauliflower bites is actually amazing and you can make it as spicy or toned down as you desire.
- With a little tweaking and adjusting of our own to suit our tastes this recipe was adapted from this one with a few additions and omissions.
- It is really easy to toss it all together and throw it into the oven so everything is ready at the same time and dinner can be served!
It’s something you can throw together quite quickly (my kind of side dish) and is FULL of flavor which helps kids really enjoy vegetables.
I find the more flavor the more they want to make it again and again.
- Adjust the heat to your liking, maybe try milder at first and work your way up from there. I am not a huge spice kinda’ gal but over time I’ve increased the heat a bit and really enjoy it.
