Buffalo chicken goes plant-based with these tasty buffalo cauliflower lettuce wraps. All your favorite buffalo wing flavors – buffalo sauce, celery, carrots and blue cheese – get wrapped up for a crowd-pleasing appetizer.

Buffalo cauliflower became an overnight sensation several years ago as people were turning to cauliflower as a low-carb replacement for everything from rice to pizza crust. When done right, buffalo cauliflower is so delicious and hard to stop eating.

I prefer to roast my cauliflower over steaming it. You can a tender inside with a slightly crispier outside, much like chicken wings.

After the florets cook for 15-20 minutes (when they reach your desired texture), remove from oven, toss in buffalo sauce and baked an additional 5 minutes to help the cauliflower soak up all that saucy goodness.

Lettuce wraps are a great vehicle to getting all your tasty buffalo wing favorites into one bite. I love a combo of celery, carrots and blue cheese crumbles, but whatever your favorite wing accompaniments are work well too.
