Keeping it Spicy

I’ve never really cared for cauliflower. To me it was just albino broccoli. Recently I saw a recipe that made me want to reevaluate my feelings toward cauliflower. This recipe was so good I had to pass it along.

But before I give you the recipe here are some of the benefits of Cauliflower.   white-cauliflower-head-lo

It’s full of Vitamin C and Potassium just like Spinach and Kale.

Has a high dosage of fiber which keeps you regular.

Has a high dosage of Folic Acid which is necessary for cell development.

Okay, so the recipe is called Buffalo Cauliflower. But I also noticed that if you don’t add the buffalo sauce you still end up with a tasty treat. So here is a two for one recipe.

Buffalo Cauliflower Or Breaded Cauliflower

1 cup of water 1 cup of flour

2 tsp. of garlic powder

2 tsp. of onion power 1 head of cauliflower, chopped into pieces 1 cup buffalo or hot sauce 1 Tbsp. olive oil or melted vegan margarine

1 ½ cups of Italian bread crumbs

*Optional 2 tbsp. of Sugar

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Combine the water or soy milk, flour, and garlic powder in a bowl and stir until well combined.
  3. Coat the cauliflower pieces with the flour mixture and them coat with bread crumbs
  4. Place in a shallow baking dish. Bake for 18 minutes. (The cauliflower can also be fried instead of baked for a crispier texture.)IMG_5797

    If you don’t like buffalo sauce no need to go any further….If you like to walk on the wild side proceed to step 5.

     

  5. While the cauliflower is baking, combine your buffalo sauce and olive oil or margarine in a small bowl. *You can add some sugar to this mixture
  6. Pour the hot sauce mixture over the baked cauliflower and continue baking for an additional 5 to 8 minutes.
