I love cauliflower. It tastes good, its satisfying and its low in calories. This dish keeps me happy and keeps me from snacking after dinner. I am always looking for new ways to make cauliflower. Most of my recipes are unintentional. Meaning, they come about because of what I have in my fridge or pantry! This dish was accidental, but it is really good if you like spicy Buffalo sauce. Other vegan buffalo cauliflower dishes have breading, but my version is tasty without the extra calories. I may try a breaded version after I am back to running my usual mileage and injury free!
Spicy Tangy Buffalo Cauliflower
1 head of Cauliflower, washed and cut into 2 inch florets
2 T olive oil
1/4 C Buffalo sauce (such as Frank’s Red Hot, mine is a grocery store brand)
4 T Nutritional yeast
1/2 t garlic powder
2-3 T water
Salt to taste
Preheat oven to 425 F.
In a large bowl, coat cauliflower florets in the olive oil until all pieces are coated.
Roast cauliflower for about 20 minutes until they turn soft and have a little color on the tops. Turning them over once halfway, after 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them as oven temperatures vary.
In a small bowl, mix together buffalo sauce, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, water and salt. If your sauce is too thick, add another tablespoon of water.
Pour the mixture on the hot cauliflower and serve with your favorite bread, grains or legumes.
