Buffalo cauliflower tots

January 28, 2016

Here’s another Superbowl finger food you can add to your party.. These buffalo cauliflower tots are so scrumptious.. and now that cauliflower has gone back to a decent price (at least where I am) you can whip these up in no time. They are spicy and a great little appetizer addition to your feast.. Best part, 2 tots for only 1 smart point! 🙂

    For the cauliflower rice, do you use raw or steamed cauliflower?

    […] The second rule will erase what we have learned growing up.  That would be to be selfish!  Make a dish that you know is healthy and you can eat.  You are the focus on this dish.  Then you will know for sure there is at least one thing you can eat.  I just recently had a potluck at work and I chose to make Buffalo Cauliflower Tots.  I wasn’t sure if any one else would enjoy them, but I was pleasantly surprised.  I had a few people ask me for the recipe?.  They were made with Cauliflower “rice” and all low-fat or fat-free ingredients.  The recipe can be found at http:///buffalo-cauliflower-tots/ […]
