Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

I have to say, cauliflower is truly an amazing vegetable. This delectable vegetarian recipe is as close as it gets to “real” buffalo wings. Before they are baked, they are dipped in a batter and then rolled in panko breadcrumbs. The panko breadcrumbs make these tasty snacks so crispy on the outside yet soft on the inside, that you will forget that you are eating cauliflower.

Enjoy!
