Buffalo cauliflower & the best brussels sprouts


Back-to-back food/cooking posts, sorry I'm not sorry. This weekend is all about staying in and relaxing. And cooking is one of my favorite "unplugging" activities. I'm cooking this weekend so I will have meals and snacks for next week (when I start working two internships). I've been browsing cauliflower recipes on Pinterest and combined a few that I saw to create Buffalo and Cilantro Cauliflower. Best cauliflower I've ever had…so I had to share with y'all!



Total meal prep time: 2 min. Cook time, 5-7 minutes - doesn't get much better than that!

Ingredients
Cauliflower (I used a bag of frozen florets, just $.99!)
Buffalo/Wing sauce (I used the Mild flavor) (1/2 cup)
Red pepper (1 teaspoon)
Black pepper
Fresh cilantro
Basil
Olive oil (quarter-sized amount)

Recipe
1. Rinse cauliflower
2. Put cauliflower in bowl and add buffalo/wing sauce; sprinkle on red pepper, black pepper and basil
3. Use a spoon to evenly coat all of the cauliflower with sauce and seasoning
4. Put olive oil in skillet and allow to get hot
5. Add cauliflower to skillet and cook for 5-7 minutes or until browned
6. Add in fresh cilantro, as desired


I also boiled some brown rice to add to some of the cauliflower for lunch next week, looks like it will be very tasty!



And yesterday I cooked up these brussels sprouts to go with some left over blackened tilapia and rice, also a great meal. These are also really easy to make:


Rinse the brussels sprouts with water then rub olive oil on them. Season with black pepper, lemon pepper, red pepper and basil. Then add a quarter-sized amount of olive oil to a pan. Add the brussels sprouts to the pan and let them cook until browned. I like to top mine with either brown sugar or honey, so good!



These are also great with some mozzarella cheese on top, yum!
