Buffalo wings are a classic party snack, but they’re usually deep fried and made with cheap, low-quality chicken.


Whether you’re going veg or just want to lighten up game day fare, cauliflower is the answer. (There’s really nothing the cruciferous veg can’t do, right?)

You’ll especially love this recipe for cauliflower buffalo bites because it requires just five simple ingredients. All you have to do is mix, toss, and bake—and maybe plan on making more during breaks in the game.
