BUFFALO CAULIFLOWER WRAPS

Are you laying low this New Year’s Eve weekend? We certainly are, now that our 2-year old has COVID and we’re all exposed and on lockdown. #Quaranteam 

I made these last night and everyone… even our 2-year old ate them. I had to modify the kids a little… they wouldn’t touch the arugula. Otherwise, they were a huge hit and have now been requested to be added to our weekly menu.

Super simple. Super satisfying. And healthy-ish.

There are quite a lot of steps involved here, but don’t let that alarm you, this recipe is simple and goes fast.
