What I Made: Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower

Hot wings are a favorite snack of mine.  I used to buy those big bags of frozen wings, but all that completely changed when I found a recipe to make them at home.  The wings are tossed in salt and olive and and roasted in the oven until the skin is nice and crispy, then tossed in a buffalo sauce, made of melted butter and your favorite brand of hot sauce in a 1:8 ratio.

This recipe for roasted cauliflower in buffalo sauce takes the chicken recipe and adapts it with a healthy twist: roast the cauliflower until browned and then toss in hot sauce.  Now it’s the perfect vegetarian and lower fat snack or side!
