Yummy Cauliflower Wings

football, wings, cauliflower

Football season is in full swing, which means lots of unhealthy game night foods—nachos, dips, pizza, pigs in blankets, and of course, buffalo chicken wings. If you’re a vegetarian or simply looking for a healthier alternative, try making honey sriracha cauliflower “wings” instead.

Cauliflower is often seen as the filler ingredient in vegetable medleys. The truth is cauliflower has the nutritious power to be the star of the plate. Cauliflower is a healthy cruciferous vegetable. It’s high in vitamin C and vitamin K. Cauliflower also has potassium, folate, vitamin B6, and fiber.

Are you preparing for your next game night? If so, be sure to add this recipe to your menu.
