Cauliflower Buffalo Bites

Since I have drastically cut down my meat consumption in the last few months I have been searching out alternatives to bar bites that I often tend to crave (with a beer…guilty pleasure). I have been seeing a ton of recipes where cauliflower is used as a substitute for meat because the vegetable can hold up to high temperatures and cooking times, and can be treated so many different ways. I’ve never been a big cauliflower person, but after seeing these “wings” and since I love me some Frank’s RedHot, I figured they would be worth a shot. The first time I made the bites was about a month ago and I immediately knew they were going to become a new staple in our house. I made them again for Oscar night and then once more this past weekend. These little guys are surprisingly the perfect alternative to chicken wings, take under an hour and they fully satisfy my bar bite cravings. Also, I am now a total cauliflower convert so how is that for a win-win!?
