the most delicious thing, if you like buffalo

Would be some buffalo cauliflower and tofu.

Yes. it's starting to get pretty popular around the web, but we've been enjoying it around here for quite some time because it's frigging delicious.  the cauliflower gets really tender, and i add some baked tofu to the mix which has a very chicken like texture after being baked again.  


My version has the added protein from the tofu, and a bigger kick in the pants.
Serve it up with with some celery and ranch for a pretty healthy meal.

Buffalo Cauliflower and Tofu
Ingredients:
1 head cauliflower, cut into pieces
1 piece of baked tofu, cut into 1-inch pieces (optional)

For the batter:
½ cup flour
½ cup milk
¼ cup Frank’s Hot Sauce
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder

For the Buffalo sauce:
1-2 Tablespoons Frank's Hot Sauce or Tabasco Buffalo Sauce
1 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Directions:
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Grease a baking sheet or use a silicon baking mat

Mix together the batter ingredients in a medium bowl. 
Add in the cauliflower and tofu pieces and toss until evenly coated in the batter.

Pour the pieces onto the greased or lined cookie sheet. 
Bake for about 15 minutes or until the batter hardens.

Pull out the baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and hot sauce.  
Toss on the sheet to evenly coat. Bake another five minutes.

Enjoy!
