I am going to try to do these amazing 5 ingredient buffalo cauliflower nuggets justice in this post, because they are the best vegetarian appetizer ever!
It was a few months ago when I was getting my hair dyed (one of the things they don’t tell you is that sometimes you can get a bunch of grey hair after having a baby lol, oh the joys) and I was talking to my beautiful stylist and asking what she likes to eat.
She told me that her whole family is vegetarian and that she started making these buffalo cauliflower nuggets and that they were a HUGE hit with everyone (including kids and teens). I have vegetarian family members and friends too, so I always love hearing new ideas.
I had to know more. Buffalo cauliflower nuggets? Did they taste weird?
She said “no, they’re SO good”
I had to experiment at home.
You guys!! I was blow away by how insanely delicious these cauliflower nuggets are!
Because you’re frying the cauliflower nuggets, they cook but don’t become mush, so the texture is like a boneless chicken wing!
AND, I realized that there are only 5 ingredients: cauliflower, eggs, breadcrumbs, olive oil, buffalo sauce which make it perfect for this weeks’ 5-ingredient Friday recipe!
I ended up serving these at a party too, and everyone loved them (even the guys, no joke)! So the next time you’re looking for a vegetarian party appetizer recipe, look no further than these 5 ingredient buffalo cauliflower nuggets.
These buffalo cauliflower nuggets could also be made in an air fryer – I’d recommend 375 degrees for 7-8 minutes.
