Buffalo Cauliflower & Brussels Sprouts


Ninja-style comfort food at its best! Buffalo sauce and cheezy sauce all over, with carrot and celery fighting sticks to finish the job.

If you want to eat more plants, roasting is the way to go. Surrounding your ingredients with dry heat coaxes out the flavor and transforms the texture of these hearty vegetables into caramelized nuggets of goodness.

Once you got that, take it a step further and add some cheezy sauce to the mix. It adds an element of indulgence and richness while allowing the taste and texture of the baked veggies and tofu to come through.

 

Once done, let these veggies with a kicker cool down a bit before serving, or you can do that thing where you chew and exhale with your mouth open like a fire-breathing dragon.
