It’s no secret that I love buffalo anything, which is exactly why I create buffalo just-about-anything. The sad truth is that most of my buffalo recipes aren’t as healthy as they could (should) be. But hey, we all need a cheat day sometimes.
Anyway, for the non-cheat days, I decided to make up this healthy buffalo cauliflower recipe…and please don’t run upon seeing the word cauliflower! Not everyone loves this seemingly flavorless vegetable, but when you spice it up with a little buffalo sauce, it creates a healthy lunch that you’ll want again and again.
I savor my cheat days…yes, I said days (maybe two days a week instead of one). However, I love knowing that I’m putting something healthy into my body without sacrificing flavor. And with a recipe that takes about 10 minutes, it’s hard to resist this one.
1/2 c frozen cauliflower
1/2 c whole wheat breadcrumbs
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dill weed
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 tbsp. olive oil (or, for an even healthier option, try algae oil)
1/2 c buffalo sauce
Cook cauliflower in a medium sauce pan on medium-low with a small amount of water for 4-6 minutes. In the meantime, combine breadcrumbs, garlic powder, dill weed, salt and pepper in a large bag. Add cooked cauliflower to bag and toss to coat the cauliflower in the mixture. Place back in the sauce pan with olive oil and cook on medium-low until crisped up, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and coat in 1/2 warm buffalo sauce (a little less for less of a kick). Serve immediately.
