Craving buffalo hot wings? We’ve made these buffalo cauliflower bites taste as authentic as possible using some clever tricks with millet flour and nutritional yeast. But keep that a secret and make two batches—because they’ll go fast.
vegetarian, gluten-free

Serves 4 as a side or 8 as an appetizer

1/3 cup (75 mL) millet flour

1/3 cup (75 mL) nutritional yeast

1⁄2 cup (125 mL) water

1 head of cauliflower, cut into bite-sized pieces

1⁄4 cup (60 mL) Louisiana hot sauce or buffalo sauce

1⁄2 cup (125 mL) blue cheese or ranch dip

2 stalks celery, cut into sticks

2 large carrots, cut into sticks

Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Line one large or two small baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
Whisk together the flour, nutritional yeast and water until smooth. Toss with the cauliflower in a large bowl until evenly coated. Spread evenly in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and quickly toss with the hot sauce. Return to the oven for another 5 minutes or until the sauce has baked onto cauliflower. Serve the bites immediately with dip and vegetable sticks.
