About Us

Serving up that classic buffalo and blue cheese combo as healthy, meatless, light, and delicious vegetarian sliders. Buffalo roasted cauliflower florets are paired with an easy blue cheese sauce and a quick kale and cabbage slaw.

With the weather slowly starting to warm up, who can resist the urge to start firing up those grills and get BBQ season going. Of course when the sun is shinning, and warm days are upon us we turn to easy BBQ meals like burgers and sliders.

Even though, this recipe calls for oven roasted cauliflower, that doesn’t mean vegetarian alternatives have to miss out on grilling or turn to veggie burgers as the quick fix solution. This recipe is great for any time of year and especially in the spring/summer months due to it’s low amount of calories it makes a great light meal. If you really want to fire up that grill, we recommend finishing off the cauliflower on the grill once it’s been coated in the buffalo sauce rather than returning it to the oven.

The sauces and sides can all be prepared while the cauliflower is roasting. They require just a few ingredients and occasional stirring. If you find yourself short on time, you could always opt for store bought buffalo sauce and a blue cheese dressing of your choice.

The slider buns should be toasted right before serving. As pictured, we decided to serve these with homemade kale chips as a healthy side dish alternative- Get the recipe here you could also make additional purple and cabbage slaw and serve that as a little side salad as well.

We hope you enjoy this recipe! Don’t forget to tag us @thecommunalfeast and #thecommunalfeast we would love to hear from you!
