I always love to share with our readers other great blogs that are out there and are dedicated to wonderful food. Since there are just so many one person can never truly see all of them. Here is a blog written by Kevin Lynch, that was created because of an interest in trying new foods and making use of a "closet sized kitchen". Having lived in a few places with super small kitchen spaces I can completely understand the issues that Kevin likely has faced in the kitchen. Closet Cooking is a great website and I am happy to share a couple of fabulous recipes that I have recently tried from this website.
Now, the Closet Cooking website is by no means a gluten free website, but there are definitely a LOT of great recipes on the site that are either naturally gluten free or can be adapted to be gluten free.
If you're anything like me you love buffalo chicken wings but maybe make a point of only eating them on occasion because of the high fat content in most restaurant style wings. By following this recipe you will find that you get the same great taste without all that grease and fat. When I made this recipe the first time, both of us wanted to just keep picking at the cauliflower florets but we knew that we had to stop for fear of overdoing it.
Bet you can't eat just one!
Thanks Kevin at Closet Kitchen for sharing such a great recipe. And to think that it is naturally gluten free just makes it that much more appealing.
Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower
Roasted cauliflower done buffalo wing style in a spicy hot sauce!
Servings: makes 4 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
- 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
- 1 tablespoon oil or butter
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup hot sauce (such as Franks RedHot)
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted (optional)
- blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping (optional)
- celery stick on the side (optional)
- Toss the cauliflower florets in the oil, salt and pepper, arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet, and roast in a preheated 400F oven until lightly golden brown, about 20-30 minutes.
- Toss cauliflower in a mixture of the hot sauce and butter and enjoy warm with blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping and celery sticks on the side.
** My Note: You may find that depending on the size of the cauliflower you'll end up with too much sauce so just keep that in mind. The second time I made this recipe I used less of the sauce and avoided that pool of sauce at the bottom of the bowl, but still kept all that great gluten free buffalo flavor.
