Buffalo wings gone meatless in this delicious take on the happy hour favourite! We use mild Buffalo sauce here to keep things family friendly but feel free to make these as spicy as you like. Serve these with carrots and celery sticks for dipping. You can also cut up the cauliflower and make the dip the night before serving but this recipe is best enjoyed freshly baked.
