Buffalo Cauliflower Bites With Blue Cheese Sauce

The typical basket of buffalo wings in a restaurant has an incredible amount of calories — and that’s before you drown them in creamy blue cheese sauce. But these vegetarian Buffalo Cauliflower Bites will have even the most ardent meat-lovers craving more!

I’ve smothered baked cauliflower florets in a much healthier version of buffalo sauce that has the same tangy, spicy flavor and paired it with a two-ingredient blue cheese sauce.
