This is a dish that everyone will love! 

I’m not one for making meat look-alike food, but the taste of Buffalo Wings is extremely delicious. This recipe is easy, spicy and absolutely delicious, not to mention healthy.

I had a pre-christmas get-together and wanted to put some party food on the table. You know, the easy bite size snacks instead of a full-blown meal. I find it keeps the momentum going, people keep on mingling and chatting, laughing. 

These Cauliflower Buffalo Wings will be a permanent fixture once you’ve made and tried them once. You can obviously adapt the ‘hot’ factor depending on your own choice.

You need a food processor, a rubber spatula, baking parchment and a mixing bowl

  7. Remove the tray from the oven, pour over the hot sauce and carefully roll the cauliflower around until the pieces are fully coated
