#MeatlessMondaze - Buffalo Cauliflower + Vegan Creamy Ranch


Buffalo Cauliflower + Vegan Creamy Ranch 

Happy Monday! Normally, I'm not too excited to see Monday roll around, but when it comes to #MeatlessMondaze - it makes the day a bit easier. 

I LOVE experimenting in the kitchen, and lately have been seeing tons of fun cauliflower dishes (all over Pinterest, of course)! Last week, I was starving and in the mood for something with BBQ sauce. Being that I'm trying to eat less dairy & embrace the vegetarian lifestyle, I knew this Buffalo Cauliflower Dish would fill my craving! And boy, did it! Super simple & perfect for a healthy lunch or dinner during the week!

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

ingredients: 
1 head of cauliflower 
1 tbsp of evoo (extra virgin olive oil) salt & pepper 
 buffalo wing sauce - wing time is my favorite (available at whole foods) 
head of lettuce, bead of arugula, tortillas, buns - whatever you want to serve it on
 avocado
tomato
blue cheese (if you're not trying to keep it dairy free)

directions: 
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. Cut cauliflower into bite-size florets. Toss with olive oil and lightly season with salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes, until cauliflower has started to get golden brown and soft. Pull out of oven and toss with some buffalo sauce, just until coated. Return to oven to roast for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until desired tenderness. Feel free to top with a bit more sauce, if you like it saucy.

  3. Hi there! I've read many posts about military diet, and I can tell that yours is very valuable. The military diet is quite easy to follow as it offers easy preparation and simple food choices. However, due to varying factors, some cannot follow the recommended meal plans. You may either have a pre-existing medical condition, food allergy, or simply you don’t like some of the foods included in the diet.
