4. Baked Bang Bang Cauliflower
This may have been one of my favorite recipes of the year. I have made it numerous times and it is super flavorful and you won't miss the meat! This was a recreation of Bonefish Grille's Bang Bang Shrimp, which is basically fried shrimp in a yummy spicy mayo like sauce. I decided to use cauliflower ad bake it until crunchy with panko. The result: A flavorful and satisfying meal that is perfect for vegetarians or meat lovers!
