Hot and spicy cauliflower bites, battered and baked and smothered with hot sauce. Serve this with skinny blue cheese dressing and celery sticks on the side for a hot and spicy meatless appetizer. If you want a buffalo chicken appetizer, try this buffalo chicken dip, it’s my favorite!

I tested it out on some of the cauliflower-averse people in my home, and they gave it a thumbs up.

One thing to note, if you are watching your sodium, you’ll have to look for a lower sodium hot sauce, or use half of the sauce. Frank’s is my favorite for buffalo sauce, but it’s not low in sodium. If anyone knows of a lower sodium buffalo sauce, kindly share!
