Buffalo Cauliflower

Recipe loosely adapted from: AllRecipes.com

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! 

Prep Time

15 minutes

Cook Time

30 minutes


8 Servings


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.
