Rather than one or two large meals, I tend to nourish myself with smaller portions throughout the day. Appetizer bites are especially suited to this preference, and in this case, I get my spicy kick and a vegetable component besides. Easy to make up, these satisfying cauliflower nuggets are a delightful and colorful addition to any party platter and a nice appetizer on their own or as a side too. They are hot, and if you want them even hotter, add even more hot sauce if you dare.
I ever so slightly adapted the recipe from Thug Kitchen and, as was suggested with the recipe in the book, made up some peanut dipping sauce to serve along with fresh cut vegetables on the side. All that goodness make for a satisfying light meal for me with plenty to stimulate the taste buds and nourish the body. My husband remarked that they were like a vegan version of buffalo chicken wings, but without the grease and gristle — they even look very similar.
