Cauliflower Buffalo Wings & How To Improve Your Health

Cauliflower Buffalo Wings

“If all you can do is crawl, start crawling” – Rumi

Before we discuss these healthy cauliflower buffalo wings, I want to say the only way you can change your life is to create new actions.  New actions lead to new opportunities.

A fresh era is only 24 days away and a possible beacon for change.  If you think of this new year as a book with 365 blank pages, what do you want to write? What is it that you really want? Lose weight, improve your health, find love, be a better person?

I know the first thing that most people do. They go on a diet.

Here is what I have to say about that. Dieting is a big mistake.

We must get away from the diet mentality that is so self-defeating, and ends up creating a cycle of depression and worthlessness. Challenge that old way of thinking. Let go of the calorie counting. You don't need a diet. You need a health intervention and lifestyle change. Trust me, it is so much easier than a diet.

You begin by making nutrition the central element of your lifestyle.

You ignore the bombardment of nonsense and half truths about food. You decide that your health is the most important thing in your life because you love yourself,  and you love your family, and you don't want to suffer from chronic disease.

You accept the truth that the cause of disease is what you eat. It is really that simple. You are in charge. I know you can do it.

Make a commitment to  a plant-based lifestyle in 2014, and see how quickly your health improves. With improved health, you find your true gentle spirit, and nothing can dim that light once it shines. The best news is you will never have to diet again in your life.

Here is how you can get started on a delicious plant-based diet. Please remember, your Ordinary Vegan community is always here to support you.

Now on to delicious, easy plant-based recipes.

Lets think ahead. Planning a Superbowl party? These plant-based cauliflower buffalo wings will be a culinary touchdown at your soiree. Easy to make and so darn healthy, but don't tell anyone that. I recommend making a big platter.

Hope you enjoy these cauliflower buffalo wings as much as I did.

Wishing all of you a compassionate and plant-filled 2014. Don't miss any of Ordinary Vegan's free recipes by signing up here.

  1. I agree with Peter….. make this oil-free & you have a winner (much healthier option, for sure). A suggestion is to spray with a LIGHT coating of oil, or use Bragg’ s, which is what we spray our popcorn (air popped) with as we coat it with a combination of nutritional yeast & sea salt. But thanks for all the other great recipes!

  2. People are really complaining about 1/8 cup oil? Really? Not sure if they realize how little that is. 1/8 cup is only 2 tablespoons…for the entire dish! For 4 servings means per serving you’re consuming 1/32 cup, or 1/2 tablespoon, or 1 1/2 teaspoons. You’d consume far more fat and oil having a serving of nut butter or avocado or coconut. Great recipe! Finally something to eat on game day alongside my kale chips. Thanks!

    1. Hi Melinda
      In all fairness, I wanted you to know that I made the recipe with less oil and changed the oil from 1/4 cup to 1/8 cup, so those comments were based on 1/4 cup of oil. Thanks for your feedback and thank you for being part of our community!

      1. This look delicious, although if you wanted to get even more similar to buffalo wings, how about coating them in a tempura and deep frying them? 😛 And use a spicy sauce. I love Cauliflower I’ll definitely try these. Thanks!

  3. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is only a good fat if kept below a certain heat which means you can only bake very slowly with it if you are claiming it is a good fat. Over a certain temperature it becomes bad as it’s structure changes. Raw it is at it’s best.

      1. I don’t use coconut oil often because of its specific flavor profile. Another high heat oil is safflower oil.

  4. I love cauliflower and surely have to try this. I am not comfortable with “buffalo” wings, though…a different name (far resemblance from animal names) would be great, I think!
