We’re jumping on the bandwagon this month and trying out buffalo-wing style baked cauliflower. ┬áDid you know that one serving of cauliflower contains 77% of your daily Vitamin C requirement along with loads of other vitamins and minerals? This recipe can be made as a side or a snack and all ingredients can be purchased from your local supermarket. You can have it with salad or a range of dipping sauces.

Don’t forget to look out for a Scottish or British flag when you buy your cauliflower!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cauliflower
  • 70g Plain flour
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 30g Red hot sauce
  • 2 tbsp Butter or Dairy-Free Spread
  • 2 tbsp Tomato puree
  • 1 tbsp of Aquafaba – the liquid from a tin of chickpeas or white beans (yes, really!)

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 220c/430f.
  2. Take the cauliflower. Remove the leaves, cut the florets off and wash.

  6. Meanwhile, prepare the buffalo sauce by melting the butter in a clean mixing bowl.
  7. Add the red hot sauce and tomato puree. Whisk until smooth.
  8. After 20 minutes of roasting, take the cauliflower from the oven and mix into the buffalo sauce until coated all over.
  9. Place the cauliflower bites into an oven dish and bake in the oven for a further 20 minutes, turning half way through cooking.
  10. When crisp, take from the oven and serve straight away.
