Cauliflower is very versatile and is has a great texture for this recipe. Buffalo sauce is recommended, but for something sweeter, BBQ sauce or a teriyaki glaze can be used in its place. The Blue Cheeze dressing is great at cooling the heat of the spicy sauce. This recipe is based on the one by Kim Campbell in PlantPure Nation Cookbook.
