  • 1 head, large (6-7" dia) Cauliflower
  • 2 tbsp Light Olive Oil
  • 4 tbsp Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 3 tsp Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
  • 1 1/2 oz Blue or Roquefort Cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Cut cauliflower into smaller florets and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Roast on a baking sheet for 35-40 minutes or until tender.
  3. While cauliflower is roasting, put hot wing sauce and siracha into a small sauce pan and heat until boiling. Lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add butter, stir until melted and allow to cool to room temperature. Heat a large sauté pan with remaining oil. Add the cauliflower and sauté until heated through, add the hot sauce and continue to cook for 1 minute, tossing continuously until fully coated. Serve immediately with blue cheese sprinkled on top.

Cooking Tip

For added creaminess and to cool the heat, combine the blue cheese with a couple tablespoons of sour cream.

How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fiber and polyols (such as glycerin and sugar alcohols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fiber and polyols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
