Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos

Tacos! Buffalo Sauce! Blue Cheese Dressing! Tie all that in with healthy cauliflower and you have a wonderful Meatless Monday dish that tastes so good the hubby will not growl, “where’s the meat?” Well not as much as usual anyhow.

Start by roasting 1 head of cauliflower that has been separated into florets. Toss the cauliflower with 1/4 cup olive oil. Spread onto a baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes.

When the butter has melted, add 2/3 cup hot pepper sauce, 1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika, 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder. Whisk well to combine. Add salt to taste. Simmer for 5 minutes.
