I think we can all agree that if it’s covered in Buffalo sauce, it’s likely (definitely) delicious. Whether you’re noshing on Buffalo Chicken Dip, Buffalo pasta salad, Buffalo macaroni and cheese, or classic Buffalo chicken wings, you’re savouring every single minute.


The Test Kitchen discussed what would and would not “Buffalo” well and settled on attempting to “Buffalo” fried cauliflower.


As previously mentioned, Buffalo sauce is the nectar of the Gods/undisputedly tasty and guess what? That holds true when fried cauliflower is covered in the tangy, bright orange sauce. Surprise, surprise.


This deep-fried snack is a creative vegetarian option to serve at your tailgate, party, or in front of the T.V. during the big game. Our tasting panel couldn’t have been more pleased with the result and would gladly eat these instead of or along side classic Buffalo wings on gameday. We all agreed on one thing though – get them while they’re hot. Right out of the deep fryer is the best way to enjoy these vegetarian delights so go ahead and fry up the entire head of cauliflower – you’ll be shocked at how quickly they’re gone. And according to any Buffalonian, it’s ONLY acceptable to serve these bites with bleu cheese dressing (don’t even mention ranch). They’ll be quick to tell you that anything else is completely unacceptable.
