Remember when you were a kid and you would only eat vegetables that your mom steamed for you to a complete mush and then covered in cheese?
Okay, well… I actually don’t because I was a very weird child that liked eating broccoli straight up and would “only” eat the green beans that came from a can. Gourmet from the beginning, friends. No carrots though, …gross.
Today’s post will teach you how to seemingly trash up your vegetables like you did when you were a kid without feeling guilty one bit. I’m serious. Stay with me.
We’re going to “bread”, roast, and douse some cauliflower in a spicy buffalo sauce. And you’re going to love it.
Guilt Free “Breaded” Buffalo Cauliflower
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray well with nonstick spray.
You will need:
- One head of cauliflower
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup oat flour [oat flour= old fashioned oats, pulverized in your food processor. literally the easiest thing you will ever do!]
- hot sauce
- nonfat plain greek yogurt
- garlic powder
Cut your cauliflower up into florets. WHY DOES CAULIFLOWER FALL APART EVERYWHERE?! It’s so messy. Do this over the sink, okay?
Whisk together your milk, water, and oat flour until well combined in a large bowl. Dip your florets into your batter, tap off excess and place on your prepared baking sheet. [You may need to whisk up your batter a few times or add some more milk to keep it smooth in consistency]
Bake for 20 minutes in your hot 450 degree oven.
While this is happening – mix together your favorite hot sauce of choice and greek yogurt. I’d be lying to you if I told you I measured this in any way. Mix it up until you get the consistency/ heat that you desire. Add a pinch of garlic powder for flavor.
By the way- YES- they make Red Hot “Thick” – just buy it. Immediately.
After 20 minutes, carefully remove your pan from the oven and douse the cauliflower with the buffalo sauce. Mix them up a bit so all of your florets are covered. Put back in the oven for another 5- 10 minutes until golden brown and delicious.
Faux- Breaded Buffalo Veggies. Oh, I’ve created a monster.
