If I were to make a list of my top 5 favorite foods buffalo wings and soup would definitely be on that list.  The exact ranking in constantly in flux, but those two are consistently in the running for my top spot.  That’s what makes this recipe absolutely amazing it’s combining two of my favorite things into one delicious easy to make and even easier to clean up meal.  

I’ve had a lot of requests for dairy free recipes lately and this recipe is dairy free, unless you top it with blue cheese.  I’ve also been sensing a lot of you aren’t huge cauliflower fans, and this recipe does have cauliflower.  I can’t please everybody, but if you have your flag firmly planted in the anti-cauliflower camp… you may want to think again.  The cauliflower taste in this recipe is non-existent, the buffalo sauce overpowers it.  The cauliflower texture in this recipe is completely smooth and creamy, the immersion blender took care of that.  So give cauliflower another chance if you’ve given it the boot, it’s too nutritious and versatile to completely exclude from your diet.  

Cauliflower is absolutely packed with phytochemicals that can prevent cancer, cardiovascular disease, and a multitude of other ailments.  Plus it’s packed with fiber too, which is an important nutrient too many people following a keto diet fall short in their intake.
