Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Sliders

THE ULTIMATE GAMEDAY SNACK

IMG_4883

Looking for a healthier-ish Super Bowl snack?  Well we can’t say that these sliders will help you shed pounds, but we can say they’re baked and meatless, so they’re better than the rest.  They’re also incredible. I’ve been making buffalo sauce since the beginning of time, and I just started witnessing innovative recipes with them dressing cauliflower instead of fried chicken wings. The texture of the baked cauliflower is surprisingly close to the texture of breaded chicken. It’s short of amazing.  Paired with my creamy homemade buffalo sauce and the crunchy slaw salad pressed between pillow-soft potato buns, and I mean..;what else do I need? They melt in your mouth.  

IMG_4803You should have seen us with our three shopping carts at trader Joe’s this afternoon. HA! It was insanely packed because of the blizzard anticipation plus Super Bowl party planning.  If you ever wonder what it feels like to have your personal space erased in thin air, live in a city, and go to a city-grocery store less than 24 hours before Super Bowl, and before a 2-4 day predicted blizzard. The entire trip took no shorter than 2 and a half hours. But we came back with all the things we needed for these babies so it was worth it 🙂

Current Reading (and other thing) List:

Quantum Success: Finished! It was a pretty good motivational read, I still have a few things to finish in my journal but it helped me verbalize affirmations that I hadn’t been thinking. 

If You Didn’t Instagram Your Coffee, Did it Happen? HUFFINGTON POST- Short Answer: No. Long Answer: I once read a sociologist’s theory that Instagraming food has become a modern response to sharing food together without sharing a dinner table, being that meals at that dinner table are quickly becoming extinct. After reading that, I’ve never question my Instagram obsession; Matter of fact: You can follow me on Instagram here 🙂

Beyonce: Not a read: but a must watch new video; this is the “dirty” version, because realness should not be screened haha 

ALSO We finally tried Spiked Seltzer–  It’s pretty amazing..  A Connecticut brand. 🙂

Ingredients
Buffalo Cauliflower
Blue Cheese Dressing
Broccoli Slaw
Servings: sliders
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degree F. Line a sheet pan with parchment and set aside.
  2. Remove the stems from the head of cauliflower, and chop them into florets, then slice the florets in half so they lay flat. Drizzle with olive oil and salt, and roast for 15-20 minutes or until the edges turn brown. Don't overcook; you want to make sure the florets aren't limp, but hold up. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  3. While the florets are roasting you can prepare the blue cheese dressing, the buffalo sauce, and the broccoli slaw ;
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the greek yogurt, the blue cheese, and the pepper together. Set aside.
  5. In a sauce pan over medium high heat, melt the butter, and then add in the hot sauce. Remove from the heat and stir.
  6. Toss the cooked cauliflower in the buffalo sauce, and assemble.
  7. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, lime juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Add the broccoli slaw and toss. Set aside.
  8. Split and toast the buns, and then assemble the burgers: Lettuce, buffalo cauliflower florets, slaw, and the thick buffalo dressing. Top with the top bun and serve!.

  1. Hoping to try this recipe out for my book club! Is there a recipe for the broccoli slaw? I’m not seeing one but maybe I’m missing something! Did you just shred/grate the broccoli and mix in the other ingredients? Thx!

    1. Hello AA! You should be able to find broccoli coleslaw mix at the store already ready to go. They’re usually by the packaged lettuces and shredded carrots. Otherwise, yes, I’m sure you can just shred the large stems of fresh broccoli using a box grater, and throw in about a 1/3 carrots and some shredded white onion or cabbage too!
