This recipe is intended for patients who have successfully completed the Soft Solid phase and are over 8 weeks post-op.

Buffalo CauliflowerINGREDIENTS

  • 1 head cauliflower; chopped into bite size pieces
  • ½ cup brown rice flour
  • ½ cup water
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • Pinch of granulated garlic powder
  • Non-stick spray
  • 1 tsp. butter substitute melted
  • ½ cup Frank’s Red Hot sauce



  • Preheat oven to 450F.
  • In a small bowl, combine brown rice flour, water, garlic powder and salt. Mix thoroughly.
  • Dip cauliflower pieces in the batter until coated evenly, then place on a lightly greased, non-stick baking sheet.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes or until the batter hardens, then flip with a spatula and bake for another 5 minutes.
  • Whisk together Frank’s Red Hot sauce and butter substitute in a small bowl.
  • When the cauliflower is finished, take a plastic pastry brush and evenly brush each piece with the hot sauce mixture.
  • Bake coated cauliflower for an additional 8-10 minutes, or until cauliflower is crispy, and sauce looks absorbed.
  • Remove from oven.
  • Let cauliflower bites set out for at least 20 minutes before serving.
