{#recipewednesday} Buffalo Cauliflower Burgers

AHHH!!! I’m so excited to bring a BRAND NEW FEATURE to the blog.

#recipewednesday. Every Wednesday you can expect a BRAND NEW clean eating recipe that is hubby tested (somtimes even doggy tested 🙈) and APPROVED!!!

Alright…let’s get to our FIRST #recipewednesday ADDITION to the blog!!!

Before you discredit this because there is no meat, slow your roll! It is SO stinkin’ good, ya’ll!!! And even though our household has gone veggie all the way, we still miss the textures of some of our FAVE meals. Like…spicy chicken sandwiches from Chik-fil-A, if you will. 😜

The roasted cauliflower, buffalo sauce, and blue cheese give this sandwich so much flavor and texture, though, you won’t miss the chicken…I SWEAR!!! Give it a try and let me know what you think!!!

Buffalo Cauliflower Burgers

Ingredients

  • 1 head of cauliflower

  • olive oil

  • salt/pepper

  • 1/2 cup buffalo/hot sauce

  • 1 tbsp butter (or vegan butter)

  • whole grain buns

  • lettuce

  • tomato

  • red onion

  • blue cheese dressing

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.

  2. Cut your head of cauliflower in half and then cut two 1/2 inch steaks from each of the sides. Trim off an green leaves at the base, but leave most of the stem in tact. You can use the remaining cauliflower to make cauliflower nuggets later in the week!

  3. Place your cauliflower steaks onto a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 25-30 minutes, turning once, halfway through.

  4. While that is roasting, prepare the buffalo sauce. Melt 1 tbsp butter over low heat and mix in 1/2 cup of your favorite buffalo/hot sauce. Remove from heat.

  5. Pour buffalo sauce over cauliflower during final 10 minutes of roasting, once you have flipped your cauliflower. Reserve any remaining sauce for serving.

  6. Remove from oven and serve on a whole grain bun with your favorite toppings. Mine include lettuce, tomato, red onions, and a drizzle of blue cheese dressing! If you have any sauce leftover and want more heat, you can always pour a little on at the end as well!
