  • 1 large broccoli tree (or two smaller stems)
  • 1 small head cauliflower
  • 2 (12-ounce) bottles red wing sauce (We like Frank’s RedHot, because it’s made with natural ingredients.)
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 (8-ounce) boxes seasoned breadcrumbs (regular or gluten-free)
  • Prepared lower-calorie blue cheese dressing
  • Celery sticks


  • Preheat oven to 450°. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Remove stem from broccoli, and core cauliflower. Cut into bite-sized florets. Wash and dry extremely well.
  • Stir wing sauce and oil in a large bowl. Add vegetables, and stir until well coated.
  • Place breadcrumbs in a pie plate. Dredge florets in the crumbs a few at a time. Set on baking sheet.
  • Bake 15–20 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Place on a serving platter, and serve with blue cheese dressing and celery sticks.
