  • Toss cauliflower in Buffalo Sauce, making sure they are coated well.
  • Serve with blue cheese dip.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

People party food! Whether it's to watch the game, yummy movie night snacks or a casual get together, yummy appetizers are always welcomed.

Buffalo wings are an American classic, however, for non-meat eaters, they're a no go. But meat eaters and green eaters alike can enjoy these spicy snacks featuring a vogue veggie, cauliflower!
