Buffalo Cauliflower Bites
These are similar to buffalo chicken bites but in cauliflower form. This means there are fewer calories, less cholesterol and way more nutrients! Cauliflower is full of fiber, vitamin C, and even contains a component that may fight against cancer.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork was blown away by how much he enjoyed these meatless meatballs! The eggplant, cheese, spices, and almond flour are combined with eggs to get that meatball-like consistency.
Tempeh is fermented soy and according to Keri, one of the best quality soy products out there. She says when people go fully meatless, they often add a lot of soy to their diet, and they need to be wary of adding too much heavily processed soy. Tempeh is still somewhat processed but not as much as other products, and it has benefits from the probiotics from fermentation, as well as contains fiber. Keri makes this pizza on a store-bought cauliflower crust but says it can be made on any crust of your choice!
Dr. Travis believes these are all so tasty, even kids will like them and according to Dr. Travis, “Deep down we’re all kids, right?” Get all of Keri’s meatless recipes here!
