Buffalo Cauliflower Bites with Ranch Dipping Sauce Recipe

When you’re craving that tangy flavor of buffalo wings but don’t want the meat or want something a little healthier, how about swapping the wings for a veggie? This Buffalo Cauliflower Bites with Ranch Dipping Sauce recipe is a great alternative to wings, is baked – not fried, and is a breeze to make.

For some added nutrition and to get in a daily dose of collagen, I like to stir a few tablespoons of NeoCell Super Collagen into my homemade ranch dressing. It’s a great way to incorporate collagen and doesn’t change the taste or texture of the dressing.

I’ve heard rumors that it’s football season (I wouldn’t really know first-hand, but I believe it to be true) – so why not throw together a batch of these delicious appetizers if you and the family are planning on having a football watch party? Change things up from the typical fried foods that are served for game day.
