Secret Recipe Club April: Buffalo Cauliflower Nuggets

22 Apr


I have been so excited to make this month’s Secret Recipe Club recipe!! Right when I get my assignment email I am sure to go and check out the blog in and out! I was very impressed by the look and content of my assigned blog, Authentic Suburban Gourmet, written by Lisa! Lisa currently lives in San Francisco… which coincidentally is one of my most favorite cities and where I was just vacationing for the past week (:

Lisa has so many great recipes and I finally came across a very interesting and unique vegetable recipe that I just had to try: Cauliflower Buffalo Bites. Since I was on vacation, I didn’t really have/use any measuring tools… so I am going to pretty much just give Lisa’s recipe, but veganized.

Buffalo Cauliflower Nuggets

Serves 2-4

1 pound cauliflower florets
1 cup water
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
Sea salt
Black pepper
Old Bay Seasoning
1/4 cup tobasco sauce
1/4 cup sriracha
1-2 Tbsp. olive oil


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and lightly grease a baking/cookie sheet. Prepare the cauliflower by washing and trimming one or two heads, or buy pre-cut like what I did (;



In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt, pepper, and spice and stir well. Stir in the water. The consistency should be somewhat like pancake batter, but a little more liquidy. In a small separate bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients, stirring well.




Dip the cauliflower florets in the flour batter then dip in the hot sauce mixture. Lay the dipped florets in a single layer on the baking sheet, leaving some space between each. Bake for 18-23 minutes, flipping halfway in the middle if necessary (I did not flip and they were still fantastic).

    I so have to try and find some sriracha as it looks like a great ingredient to use!

    Ohh, these look so tasty. Do you make your own sriracha?

    So glad that you picked this recipe and I like your adaptation to the recipe. Sriracha is always a winner. Your little doggie peaking under the table is simply the cutest. Hope you have a great week ahead!!! Glad to be part of the SRC with you and you did a great job with my recipe.
