Celebrate Nutrition with Buffalo Cauliflower!

March 08, 2017 | School Nutrition Program

Happy National Nutrition Month! This month we are all about delicious recipes and tips that will make eating healthy something you actually look forward to. To kick things off, we wanted to share with you one of the favorite recipes: Buffalo Cauliflower!

I know. Cauliflower. Not the most exciting topic in the world. Unless you go to school at New Orleans College Prep, where “Orange Broccoli,” as the kids are calling it, is all the rage.

We love this recipe because it is simple, quick, and easy, but still packs a huge punch of flavor that can make almost anyone eat their vegetables (buffalo sauce makes everything better in our opinion). This is also a great way to introduce new food into your diet. So celebrate National Nutrition Month in style with this recipe, and let us know what you think. Buffalo Cauliflower– for even the most dedicated veggie hater.
