Buffalo Broccoli Bites

VEGAN, VEGETARIAN, NUT-FREE, GLUTEN-FREE

A batch of broccoli, some simple breading, even simpler Buffalo sauce to toss – these beauties come together in under 30 minutes. They are super crispy and spicy. 

The Buffalo sauce is made with at home condiments such as Sriracha sauce, spicy mustard, rice wine vinegar, and maple syrup. 

I find broccoli to be a very versatile vegetable which takes well to high heat baking. 

Gluten-free tip – use cornmeal in the place of breadcrumbs

These can be prepared in large quantities and you will find them vanishing quickly as appetizers. Just incase you have leftovers, which I highly doubt 😇, these golden ‘nuggets’ can be used to make a quick stir-fry such as broccoli Manchurian to go with a nice rice preparation.

Here are some suggestions to try – 

Eggplant and purple yam rice

Brown Rice Mushroom biriyani

Kale Basil pulav

These can also be topped on a flatbread to make some very unique pizza – PSSSTTT coming up in our next post! 🤩
