buffalo cauliflower tidbits made with only 7 ingredients…

I love this vegan, gluten-free snack. There is no need for frying, no grains, and most importantly, the savoury cauliflower bites are addictively delicious.

The cauliflower florets are coated in a batter made with chickpea flour  (garbanzo bean flour) turmeric, garlic, salt and a splash of water – no eggs or complicated ingredients.

Once the cauliflower is coated in the grain-free batter, it is baked. So there is no mess or unwanted saturated fats. You may enjoy the Baked Tuna Melt Jalapeño Poppers or the Gluten-Free Firecracker Chicken & Mozzarella Meatballs both are created with healthiness in mind.

The buffalo sauce is super easy to make. You can use your favourite gluten-free spicy sauce, or my favourite is the Frank’s RedHot Sauce. To make the sauce, you simply mix some melted coconut oil or butter with the sauce. That’s it!

two steps for crispy buffalo cauliflower tidbits…


The cauliflower is first partially baked in the batter. Then, the florets are tossed in the hot sauce and then baked a little longer until the outside becomes slightly crispy. So so good!
