Cauliflower, a member of the “trendy trio” of vegetables, along with kale and brussel sprouts, has earned a special place in my heart. Add spicy buffalo sauce and you had me at cauliflower! What’s better than a hit of spiciness while getting your fiber, folate and Vitamin C in a nutrient dense, low in carbohydrates, low in fat vegetable? As the Whole Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower cooks in the oven the hot sauce seeps into the florettes giving you a taste of heat with every bite. And only 3 ingredients! To me it’s a win-win! I guarantee everyone will be impressed when you bring a whole cauliflower to the table! Perfect for Meatless Monday. Just cut in wedges, serve with a salad and you’re all set!
