It wasn’t until college when I realize that buffalo wings are actually deep fried before they’re drenched in buffalo sauce. Not that this newfound knowledge will ever stop me from eating wings, but it’s nice to know there are *slightly* healthier alternatives.
I broke apart an entire head of cauliflower into bite sized pieces, rinsed, and dried them. Then I tossed the cauliflower with milk, flour, garlic powder, salt, pepper, olive oil, and a splash of Frank’s buffalo sauce (this stuff has zero fat and calories, but it’s loaded with sodium). I sprinkled the pieces with panko breadcrumbs and baked them on a tray at 450°F for 20 minutes. Then I lightly-coated the bites with more buffalo sauce, and let them bake in the oven for another 10 minutes.
I served the bites taco style on a bed of shredded carrot and red cabbage, and topped it with a *slightly* healthier version of blue cheese dressing. To make the dressing, I mixed together blue cheese crumbles, nonfat plain Greek yogurt, milk, a splash of vinegar, salt, and pepper. Also, cilantro is always a good idea.
