Buffalo Cauliflower Bites (from Food Babe Kitchen!)

I’ve got something fun to share with you today … my friend Vani just released her first cookbook! We very much see eye-to-eye when it comes to avoiding highly processed food, so I’m excited to have her brand new cookbook for ideas and inspiration! And my 13-year-old, who is currently not eating meat, wasted no time at all picking out a tasty recipe to make, which I’m sharing below.

This book turned out beautiful and is full of delicious real food recipes and inspiring tips! I love all the colorful photos of the recipes and Vani’s family, including her precious daughter Harley. 🙂 Speaking of cute daughters (cue my 13-year-old’s eye roll for me saying that, haha), this is what my daughter picked out to make from the cookbook…

We’d never made anything with a Buffalo Sauce before, and it turned out so flavorful without being too spicy (although it definitely had a kick to it). And, I love that Vani had us making the coating and sauce with wholesome ingredients to put on a vegetable, of course! Perfect for my vegetarian daughter who even helped with the cooking…

This recipe was ridiculously easy to make and we even took things one step further by serving the finished Buffalo Cauliflower Bites on homemade corn tortillas to make fun little tacos. They were so good! My family likes some spice, and I found that with the addition of sour cream and cheese (I recommend crumbled queso fresco) on the tacos it helped cut the spice just enough for me.
