Whole Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower With Avocado Blue Cheese Dressing

Updated: Apr 2, 2020

For better or for worse, football season is here. And when your husband is from Buffalo, chances are you are donning red and blue and covered in Buffalo Sauce. And if you’re a dietitian married to a Buffalonian, you’re making Buffalo Cauliflower.

Whole Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower

I never understood Buffalo Sauce until I visited Buffalo for my first time. On that first visit, I was hooked. For those of you who don’t know, there’s a rivalry between two establishments: Duff’s and Anchor Bar. Now I’ve really only been to one, got sauce all over my dress, ate a lot of fried pickles and didn’t feel so hot.

So I can’t be the judge of this debate. I do, however, frequently purchase sauce at the local shop and DIY my game grub. And here’s my choice: Anchor Bar medium is where it’s at my friends. There. I said it. Step aside Frank’s RedHot.

Let the debate begin.

Regardless if you’re a Frank’s RedHot lover, Duff’s or Anchor Bar fan, the tangy spice of Buffalo Sauce is hard to resist. If you, like me, aren’t a wing person, you’ve likely jumped on the Buffalo Cauliflower bandwagon. And I don’t blame you! I love them – but truthfully they’re kind of a pain to make.

That’s why I’ve made a fuss-free Whole Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower that, dare I say it, looks fancy AF.

Topped with an avocado blue cheese dressing, it’s got all the flavours of game day with less mess, and more veg.
