Cauliflower Buffalo Wings

Author Notes: Yep. It’s true. Lightly battered and baked cauliflower is the perfect stand-in for chicken wings. And they’re much healthier too! We adore Frank’s Hot Sauce. It’s kind of the standard. But feel free to use your favorite hot sauce as long as it’s free of extra additives, preservatives, and sugar.Simple Green Smoothies
