Cauliflower Buffalo Wings

IMG_2577

As many of you know, cauliflower  is my favorite vegetable. I have eaten it many ways: baked, broiled, boiled and fried. However, I have never tried it battered and tossed with a hot sauce. These are a very nice alternative to chicken wings on a football game party. So while the carnivores, like my fiancé, are chowing down on some wings, I can eat my vegan/vegetarian version and still enjoy the flavor of a game day. The original recipe comes from http://tastykitchen.com/blog/2012/12/cauliflower-buffalo-wings/ and I think she did a great job making a classic dish into a healthy snack.
