“Buffalo”-style Cauliflower Bites

Superbowl 2015 has recently passed. There are a few quint-essential recipes that are associated with watching the game, Buffalo chicken wings included. I love the pungent flavour of the Buffalo dressing, spiked with vinegar, but have always wanted to try a vegetarian option. After searching a bit, I found this recipe of the Cauliflower Buffalo Bites on by the SaucySoutherner.

I simplified the preparation: so this recipe of the “Buffalo”-style Cauliflower Bites is easy and fast. You can have this guilt-free and light recipe ready in under 30 minutes, including the prep time!

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp hot chili sauce / Sriracha / Frank’s Hot sauce , etc
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups Panko crumbs
  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F. Prepare a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper.
  2. Separate the cauliflower head into bite-sized florets. Place the florets in a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, add the melted butter, hot sauce, white vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper.
  4. Pour the dressing over the cauliflower and mix well so the florets are covered with sauce evenly. 
  5. Pour the crumbs over the cauliflower and mix well. Most of the crumbs will adhere to the florets.
  6. Place the baking sheet into the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the crumbs are golden brown.
  7. Remove the baking sheet from the oven.
