Looking for Plant Based Appitizers?

In our family, just like yours, we have members who do not eat meat. Most of our nonmeat eaters are vegetarian so it makes it easier to change up the recipe.

My daughter who is a vegetarian made up this recipe as she loves the traditional Frank’s Redhot recipe but does not eat meat. It is so delicious it is the only recipe I use. I don’t even think of making the recipe with chicken.

This recipe is so easy to make. Just mix and bake and your guest will never know the difference. The key is to have the bag of riced cauliflower thawed and drained before you start. Also, you need to have the cream cheese at room temperature.

When our friends got together for a fun appetizer party on our deck this summer they dove right into the cheese dip. They were so surprised to find out it did not have any chicken. The best surprise is that cauliflower buffalo dip is lighter and while delicious it is not heavy at all.

Who would know that making just one swap would help you entertain your vegetarian friends and still have that wow taste factor? You can also use a light cream cheese or a vegan cream cheese.

To Make the Recipe Vegan

  • Substute the regular cream cheese for vegan cream cheese
  • Substute the ranch dressing for vegan mayo and ranch mix
  • Substute the blue cheese for any vegan white cheese that can be crumbled
