A plant-based alternative to the classic buffalo chicken wing, these buffalo cauliflower bites definitely aren’t lacking in flavor or satisfaction. Try them with City Market’s own delicious Bayley Hazen Blue Cheese Dip! 


8 cups
cauliflower (broken into florets)
2 tablespoons
olive oil
salt (to taste)
1 cup
hot sauce (Frank's works well)
3 tablespoons
butter (melted)
1 tablespoon
lemon juice


Preheat oven to 450F. Rinse cauliflower and break into bite sized florets.  Lay the pieces out evenly on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and toss until well and evenly coated. Sprinkle with salt. Roast for 20-25 minutes, until just tender.

Meanwhile, mix together melted butter, hot sauce, lemon juice, and salt. Remove cauliflower from oven. Pour sauce over the florets and toss until all pieces are evenly coated. Return to oven and cook for 5-7 minutes more, until the sauce bubbles and the cauliflower edges start to brown.

Serve with your favorite ranch or blue cheese dip. 

*Test out a locally made hot sauce like Benito’s for the Locavore spin.
