Sideline meat this football season with my delightful Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower!

Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower- Sideline Meat Monday Night with this tasty game day treat!

Hi beautiful readers!

With football season in full swing, I’ve been in search of some fun meat free alternatives for game day.  I love a bag of chips as much as the next person, but it’s a long season and some plant-based, less-processed treats will come in handy.

My Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower is exactly what the doctor ordered!

The Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower is coated in a light layer of batter using one of my favorite cooking ingredients, Silk Almond Milk.  All of Silk’s plant-based beverages are so versatile in the kitchen, but for this recipe I chose the original unsweetened almond milk!  At only 30 calories a serving, it’s great way to cut calories out of a dish.

The florets are roasted in the oven, not fried and then coated with a delicious hot wing mixture.  There is some butter in the wing sauce, but you could easily sub a vegan or light butter alternative.

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce plus lots of carrots and celery to round out the snack or meal.

And did I mention the hot wing sauce… it’s basically a football loving dream.

    I love Buffalo Cauliflower but I have only put a batter on it once for a bunch of guys, I usually do it without but I think I will have to make it again. Not a football fan but I’ll pretend for some good game day food!

    So I’ve seen a lot of buffalo cauliflower recipes but I just can’t believe they taste good, mostly because I don’t like cauliflower, haha. However, you may have convinced me on this recipe. I love taking food for football games, but hate how fattening all of it can be so this can be a great alternative!

    • JulieWunder September 15, 2015 at 1:12 pm - Reply

      Haha! I need to try it with a veggie you like! 🙂

  27. Kelly September 15, 2015 at 12:13 pm - Reply

    You had me at Buffalo. 🙂 This looks delicious and we are trying to eat less meat = Perfect!

      I know! Anything with buffalo is my fav! Great to see you today!

    Oh YUM! I have never though of doing anything like this before with cauliflower. I think this is a must for our next family party:) Thanks for sharing!!!!

    • JulieWunder September 15, 2015 at 1:12 pm - Reply

      It’s a great trick to get the flavor without the fat!

    MMMMM..this looks delicious! Cauliflower is always my favourite snack to have. I never thought of coating it with almond milk before, such a clever idea!

  30. Nicole @ Fitful Focus September 15, 2015 at 10:14 am - Reply

    ooo yes! Such a good idea! My best friend is a huge football fan and she’s vegan so I’ll definitely be sharing this recipe with her 🙂

    I’m totally trying this out for next Sunday. Deborah posted some zucchini nachos that I will also have to try. Vegetarian friendly treats are hard to come by on football Sunday!

    • JulieWunder September 15, 2015 at 1:11 pm - Reply

      Those zucchini nachos sounded good too. We should just have a big football party with “our” food 🙂

    I love this recipe! I actually tried a new frozen buffalo cauliflower last week and loved it, so I’m sure this fresh recipe would taste a million times better.

    • JulieWunder September 15, 2015 at 1:11 pm - Reply

      What? They make a frozen one? Whoa! This one is pretty tasty 🙂

  33. ooh yum! I haven’t cooked with almond milk yet. These look great! I love hot and spicy food

  34. Danielle September 15, 2015 at 7:07 am - Reply

    YUM! I love cauliflower and anything buffalo style, but never thought to put them together. I’m totally giving this one a try!

    • JulieWunder September 15, 2015 at 1:10 pm - Reply

      I LOVE wing sauce, so this gives me a great chance to eat it, since I don’t eat chicken!

  35. Susie @ SuzLyfe September 15, 2015 at 6:41 am - Reply

    YUMMERS. I love roasted cauliflower, and I love buffalo sauce, but it can be so heavy and oily. This is a fabulous marriage of healthy and tasty!

    • JulieWunder September 15, 2015 at 1:09 pm - Reply

      You could easily reduce the butter in this or use vegan butter alternative too!

  36. Blane Sherer September 15, 2015 at 6:39 am - Reply

    I am a fan of Almond Milk ( s ).
    They are good and they are very versatile.
