Never Tried Cauliflower Wings? Here’s How You Can Make Them!

Cauliflower has transformed itself from another boring veggie to staple superfood in the last few years, and we’ve discovered countless new ways to consume it. The latest we’re going crazy for? Delicious Buffalo cauliflower wings!

Lindsay Grimes Freedman, the author behind cookbook Cauliflower Power, shared the recipe for this tasty dish on her food blog The Toasted Pine Nut and combined two of our favorite things into one.

If Buffalo wings happen to be your No. 1 comfort food, but you’re looking for a way to replace chicken with something a little bit healthier but equally tasty, you couldn’t possibly ask for a better ingredient than cauliflower.
