Ah beautiful, wonderful Pinterest. I find so many amazing and delicious recipes from here and I don’t think this is going to be any exception!

Here is a recipe from Self for crispy,  spicy wings made with…cauliflower?!?! Yep, that’s right, the little white veggie. 





auliflower Buffalo “Wings”


  • 1 Head Cauliflower 
  • 1 Cup 1% Milk 
  • 3/4 Cup Whole Wheat Flour 
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder 
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter 
  • 1/2 Cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce 
  • 1/2 Cup Blue Cheese Dressing (recipe below)

Preheat oven to 450 Degrees. Trim the head of cauliflower into appetizer sized bites and set aside. In a bowl stir together milk, flour and garlic powder. Dip each piece of cauliflower into the batter and allow the extra batter to drip off. Place on a greased baking sheet. Spray the tops of the florets with cooking oil. Bake for 18 minutes. 

Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat and add the Frank’s hot sauce and stir. Toss cooked cauliflower pieces with the sauce. Put back on cookie sheet and bake for 5 to 7 more minutes in the oven. Remove and serve with a side of Blue Cheese Dressing.
