I love this Joy Food version of Buffalo “wings”—it’s made with cauliflower, so you get the delicious kick of traditional wings without all the extra junk. The regular version contains more than 1,000 calories, while my slimmed-down spin has just 80 per serving. Try it with my Bleu Cheese Dip.
This recipe comes straight from my book, From Junk Food to Joy Food. Check it out here.
- Prep time
- Total Time
- ½ cup flour
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ cup water
- 1 head of cauliflower, chopped into bite-sized pieces
- ½ cup hot sauce
- 1 teaspoon butter
Preheat oven to 450˚. Coat a baking sheet with nonstick oil spray and set aside.
In mixing bowl, combine the flour, garlic powder and water. Whisk until smooth. Toss in the cauliflower pieces and coat thoroughly.
Place the battered cauliflower pieces in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes, turning the pieces halfway through.
A few minutes before the cauliflower is done, pour the hot sauce and butter into a large skillet and melt over medium-low heat.
When the cauliflower is done, toss it into the skillet with hot sauce mixture, stirring to thoroughly coat it.
Place the cauliflower back on the baking sheet in single layer and roast for an additional 25 minutes until it becomes crispy. Serve.
