Standard chicken wings are bad news because each one is coated with C.R.A.P. batter, deep-fried, and contains more than 100 calories. Instead, go for this SuperSwap version made from whole grains (brown rice) and veggies (cauliflower)…at 12 calories per popper. The batter has only 3 ingredients! Easy.

Servings: 3 Print Recipe
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup hot sauce (I recommend Frank's RedHot Original sauce)
1/2 cup water
3 cups cauliflower florets, cut into 1.5 inch pieces
1 PREP: Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and brush the paper with the oil.
2 MAKE THE BATTER AND DIP THE CAULIFLOWER: In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, 1/4 cup of the hot sauce, and the water. Dip the cauliflower pieces into the batter and place them on the prepared baking sheer as you go.
3 COOK: Bake for 15 minutes, remove from oven, flip, brush with the remaining 1/4 cup of hot sauce. Then bake for 10 minutes more.
OH YEAH, ONE MORE THING...
Classic side: Serve these buffalo poppers with a quick blue cheese dip and veggies. Here's how: Stir together 1/2 cup plain 2% Greek yogurt and 3 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese. Serve with carrot and celery sticks.
