I’ve got something fun to share with you today … my friend Vani just released her first cookbook! We very much see eye-to-eye when it comes to avoiding highly processed food, so I’m excited to have her brand new cookbook for ideas and inspiration! And my 13-year-old, who is currently not eating meat, wasted no time at all picking out a tasty Buffalo Cauliflower Bites recipe to make, which I’m sharing below.
This book turned out beautiful and is full of delicious real food recipes and inspiring tips! I love all the colorful photos of the recipes and Vani’s family, including her precious daughter Harley. :) Speaking of cute daughters (cue my 13-year-old’s eye roll for me saying that, haha), this is what my daughter picked out to make from the cookbook…
We’d never made anything with a Buffalo Sauce before, and it turned out so flavorful without being too spicy (although it definitely had a kick to it). And, I love that Vani had us making the coating and sauce with wholesome ingredients to put on a vegetable, of course! Perfect for my vegetarian daughter who even helped with the cooking…
This recipe was ridiculously easy to make and we even took things one step further by serving the finished Buffalo Cauliflower Bites on homemade corn tortillas to make fun little tacos. They were so good! My family likes some spice, and I found that with the addition of sour cream and cheese (I recommend crumbled queso fresco) on the tacos it helped cut the spice just enough for me.
This is something we’ll definitely be making again and again! Thanks for sharing your new book with us Vani and for letting us share the recipe! Here it is…

I know you said can sub cow’s milk,but why would you even choose almond milk in the first place? Have you seen the nasty processed ingredients in a container of store bought almond milk? Even health food store almond milk is full of junk ingredients. Do you make your own almond milk at home that is free from all the junk? Just wondering why you used almond milk when you are supposed to be showcasing real food.
Hi Tamara, this recipe is from Food Babe’s new cookbook. I would reach out to her for any questions you have regarding the recipe ingredients. – Nicole
I’m aware this recipe is from food babe’s book. However, this site claims to feature real food ingredients so I absolutely question your choice to use almond milk. Would assume you would know the nasty ingredients in almond milk as well as the bad ingredients in other foods you showcase. I don’t believe you have the knowledge you claim to have for knowing what is real food. This is a site I will no longer read because I have noticed you have veered far from what you preached years ago when this site first began.Money from sponsors has become the motivation for what you feature lately I do believe.
Lisa tested this recipe out with cow’s milk. Of course, you could use homemade almond milk which would still stick to the real food rules. We appreciate your feedback. – Nicole
I would definitely use cow’s milk instead of almond milk. Almond milk is high in sugar and the almonds most likely have not been properly prepared(soaked) to get rid of phytic acid, which make the milk hard to digest. It’s a common misconception that almond milk is healthy. Unless you make it yourself or know how it’s been prepared it can cause digestive issues.Would love to see this sight gain knowledge on how to properly prepare the food you showcase.
Red meat is very important for the replacement of iron in young girls after the monthly menstrual cycle. A good nutrition class can be very beneficial for young people to help them see sir
I would be cautious encouraging my child to not eat meat. Animal proteins and animal fats are crucial for developing brain and muscle. Plant protein can’t provide the same important nutrients as animal protein. Red meat is very important for replacement of iron in young girls after monthly menstrual cycle. A good nutrition class can be very beneficial for young people to help them see the importance of every food group.
