Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Hot and spicy cauliflower bites, battered and baked and smothered with hot sauce. Serve this with skinny blue cheese dressing[1] and celery sticks on the side for a hot and spicy meatless appetizer.

I stumbled on a vegan version of this recipe on Peta[2] and thought they looked good so I made some slight changes and gave it a try. I tested it out on some of the cauliflower-averse people in my home, and they gave it a thumbs up.

One thing to note, if you are watching your sodium, you’ll have to look
for a lower sodium hot sauce, or use half of the sauce. Frank’s is my
favorite for buffalo sauce, but it’s not low in sodium. If anyone knows
of a lower sodium buffalo sauce, kindly share!
