Do you love buffalo chicken wings? Unfortunately, they’re generally not particularly nutritious if they’re fried and tossed in that buttery sauce… Heres an easy way to get your buffalo fix with a VEGETABLE… cauliflower!!! These Buffalo Cauliflower Bites are SERIOUSLY delicious.
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1 dash Salt
1 head, medium (5-6″ dia) Cauliflower
1/2 cup (8 fl oz) Water
1/2 tbsp Earth Balance Natural Buttery Spread
1.5 cup Bob’s Red Mill Whole Grain Oat Flour
4 oz Chobani Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt
0.0625 serving cup Silk Pure Almond Milk – Unsweetened Original
8 tbsp Sweet Baby Ray’s Buffalo Wing Marinade and Sauce
Preheat oven to 450F.
Whisk together greek yogurt, milk, water, garlic powder and oat flour until well combined. It may be thick.
Toss cauliflower florets in yogurt mixture until well coated.
Place cauliflower on baking sheet lined with foil and sprayed.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, until coating bakes over florets.

Devour with blue cheese dressing! (I made my dressing with 1/2 cup greek yogurt, 1/4 cup blue cheese, 1 tsp lemon juice, and 1/2 tsp garlic)
-½ sweet white onion
-2 garlic cloves
-Fresh buffalo mozzarella or Parmesan cheese
-Salt & Pepper
Preheat oven to 350°. Using a sharp knife cut the spaghetti squash in half and remove all the seeds. Place squash on a foil-lined cookie sheet and put in oven. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until the “meat” of the squash is soft.
Meanwhile, chop up garlic, onion, and mushrooms and broccoli. Once the squash is done, take it out of the oven to cool slightly. (Keep oven on) While the squash is cooling, sauté the garlic, onion and mushrooms in olive oil. Microwave the broccoli florets in a bowl filled with ¼ inch of water for about 2 minutes.
Using a fork, scrap out the squash and put into a large bowl. Squash should come out like “spaghetti.” Once all the squash is out of the “shells” place the “shells” aside. These will be used as bowls for the dish.
Add the sautéed garlic, onions, and mushrooms to the squash and mix. Season with salt and pepper. Next, add in the broccoli and pasta sauce and mix.
Place the spaghetti squash back into the “shells”, top with fresh mozzarella and put back into the oven. (Parmesan cheese can also be used.) Bake for about 10 minutes. Before taking the squash out, turn the oven to broil. Broil for about 1-2 minutes or until cheese is slightly brown.

Once cool, add olive oil, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, apple cider, garlic powder, salt and pepper and mix. Next add in apple, spinach and cranberries and mix well.
