Buffalo Cauliflower Wings

One of the first recipes I posted on For the Sake of Good Taste (and a personal all-time favourite) is this buffalo cauliflower sandwich. In a similar vein, I’m a huge fan of buffalo cauliflower wings.

I first made a version of these during my freshman year of college when a friend and I hosted a super bowl party for our larger friend group. I was hooked!

Since then, I’ve tried dozens of different recipes and adapted my own to come up with this one (though let’s be honest, I’ll almost definitely adapt it more!).  I’ve made it with fresh and frozen cauliflower florets, store0-bought or homemade buffalo sauce, and with or without the crispy batter. It’s delicious all of these ways!
