I have been really wanting to try out this healthy buffalo cauliflower bites recipe for quite some time and finally got around to it. I wish I had started making this sooner because it was absolutely delicious. I have seen various versions of this recipe and many of them were quite time consuming. If you are a fellow busy parent that wants to cook up a quick and delicious meal, then you are in the right place!
For this recipe, all you need is to coat your cauliflower in a hot sauce mixture, cook in the oven for 20 minutes and then they are ready to enjoy. YES! They are that simple to make. Super healthy and simple alternative to traditional buffalo chicken bites. Because this recipe is all about saving time and we have narrowed it down to only a few steps, they are not going to be super crispy. You may want to broil them if you are able to keep a close eye on them while they are in the oven.
If you have children that love spicy foods and enjoy buffalo wings, this is a genius way to sneak in a veggie. You can also get creative with sauces and try out new dips. Again… if you are looking for a crispier version of this recipe, I suggest broiling them in the oven, just make sure to keep a close eye on them so you don’t burn them.
If you are looking for something to add with these delicious buffalo cauliflower bites, these Minute® Ready to Serve Rice bowls pair perfectly with them. What’s so great about them is that they are an easy go-to lunch for our family as we are in that busy back-to-school season.
