Here’s a vegetarian take on an American bar food classic.
Food Loves Beer Editors
BEER BATTERED BUFFALO CAULIFLOWER BITES
There’s something undeniably addictive about Buffalo chicken wings. We think it’s the blend of texture and flavors: the crunch of the crispy skin, the buttery hot and tangy sauce, and the cool and pungent blue cheese dipping sauce that garners legions of fans. In fact, this combination is so enticing that vegetarians were determined to recreate an equally enjoyable version, and the result is this recipe we adapted from Planticize. It’s definitely a crowd-pleaser, and not just among vegetarians. A light, crisp beer batter with brown rice flour gives the coating a nice crunch, which doesn't lose its texture after the sauce is added.

Suggested Beer Pairing: Even though these delectable bites go well with just about any beer, we like them best with bold-flavored beers like IPA, porters and stouts, as well as crisp lagers.
