This healthier version of buffalo wings is meat-free and baked instead of fried, but full of flavor and spice. It can be eaten plain or, as Sroufe recommends, as a Buffalo Po’ Boy sandwich, served on a whole-grain hoagie or sandwich buns with cabbage and peanut slaw.

½ cup water
¼ cup almond butter
½ cup red hot sauce, plus extra for tossing with the cooked bites
¾ cup whole-wheat pastry flour
¼ cup nutritional yeast
1 ½ Tbsp granulated garlic
1 large-head cauliflower, cut into 1-inch florets (about 6 cups)

Preheat the oven to 375° F. Combine everything except the cauliflower in a large bowl.

Mix well. Add the cauliflower florets and toss until thoroughly coated.

Place the coated florets on a nonstick baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Toss with extra red hot sauce if desired.
