Going vegetarian wasn’t a difficult transition for me, but I will admit that there is one thing I miss from my carnivore days: fried chicken. Popeye’s, Honey’s Kettle, Hooters…I miss all of it. Every now and then, I’ll order the buffalo strips from Veggie Grill to satisfy my cravings, but today, I decided to take a different route.
Enter buffalo cauliflower. Delicately battered, baked and tossed in Frank’s Red Hot sauce, these faux buffalo wings are so simple to make and can be whipped up in a snap!
