Buffalo wings have been a staple in bars across the U.S. and Canada, but what if there was a more health conscious option? Good news! You can get the same flavors using cauliflower instead of fried chicken wings, and a slew of health benefits, too.


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup hot sauce (choose a low-sodium hot sauce like Tabasco; Frank’s is too high in sodium)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cauliflower head, medium-size


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F and prepare a 9 x 13 baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place butter, hot sauce, apple cider vinegar, coconut aminos and garlic powder into a small saucepan over medium heat.
  3. Once the butter is melted, then whisk up the mixture to fully combine.
  4. Take a medium head of cauliflower and remove the stem. Chop these florets into smaller, bite-size pieces and put into a large mixing bowl.
  5. Pour two-thirds of the sauce over the cauliflower and mix with a wooden spoon or hands. (The rest of the sauce will be used for dipping later.)
  6. Pour the cauliflower out on your parchment paper-lined pan and spread the pieces evenly.
  7. Bake for 40 minutes and remove from oven.


Serve with the remainder of the Buffalo dipping sauce, along with an optional vegan blue cheese dip
