I’ve been on a cauliflower kick lately, and with the Superbowl coming I knew there was one thing that HAD to be on the menu- Buffalo Cauliflower. Once you try it, it may become a regular rotation for a snack on the weekends, like it has in our home. They’re also a great hit at a party.
Now, I’m not going to lie to you and tell you they taste like Chicken Wings, because they don’t. But, if you happen to love chicken wings AND are a fan of cauliflower then you’ll love this combination. If someone TELLS you that cauliflower can ever taste like chicken DON’T TRUST THEM THEY LIE RUN AWAY. Or, at the very least that person is a horrible cook, in which case ALSO means you shouldn’t take any food advice from them. You’re welcome.
I’ve tried several similar recipes and after lots of trial and error, I was finally able to develop a recipe with all the elements I like. I prefer to use cornstarch rather than flour. I also don’t like my poppers to have a heavy “breading” texture. This particular recipe leaves the poppers with a slight crunch and great flavor.
I hope you enjoy it with the same enthusiasm that my husband enjoyed eating these after I took these photos!
