Buffalo Spiced Cauliflower Bites – 21 Day Fix Approved

I ALWAYS try to bring a somewhat healthy dish to parties, but I don’t want to be that person who always brings the vegetable platter. This is a great way to bring something interesting that can be passed off as not-so-healthy. (Shhh…) Courtesy of Beachbody
