I must admit that before becoming vegan I enjoyed boneless buffalo wings. Back then I was one of the millions of people that enjoyed food but did not take the time to think about the fact that an animal, that did not want to die, suffered a horrible death just so I could appease my taste buds. My eating habits and thought process were totally transformed!
Today, I think about simple ways I can veganize some of my old favorites in ten ingredients or less. I decided to give buffalo cauliflower a try. Experiencing with ingredients like turmeric, nutritional yeast, and cumin (things I already had in my pantry) I was not sure how they would turn out. I am pleased to say they not only look great, but the taste is out of this world.
In addition to being a versatile ingredient, cauliflower has a long list of impressive health benefits. It's loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that help fight inflammation in our cells. Because it's high in fiber and water, cauliflower slows digestion and promotes that "full" feeling. This may assist you in the amount of calories you consume overall in a day. It can be added to soups, pizza, pasta, and many other recipes. I am going to be featuring cauliflower in several recipes to come!
Once I coated the cauliflower in the mixture of flour, almond milk, and spices I evenly coated it with panko bread crumbs to give it the crunchy texture.
The end result can be served as an appetizer or side and is fantastic paired with fresh, steamed veggies!
Crispy, crunchy, tender, tasty, and only ten ingredients!

Last week was an exciting week. It's always great to receive product samples, and I was anticipating my package from VIVOTRIBE. The company makes ready-to-eat organic beans with flavors like Chimichurri, Pad Thai, and Miso Ginger. I was extremely impressed with the products, and I will do a seperate review post soon.
The first one I sampled was the Chimichurri. It's high in protein and packed with fresh flavors like organic parsley, organic cilantro, organic garlic, and fresh organic black beans.
The delicious flavors immediately reminded me of tacos, but I had decided to make vegan pizza for dinner. So, I decided to combine my love for both foods, and I created a taco pizza.
This is a quick and easy vegan recipe. You can use your creativity to customize it, and make it your own. I look forward to hearing from you!
Festive, flavorful, speedy, spicy, and only nine ingredients to make!
