Buffalo Cauliflower Recipe – Vegan

It’s a no brainer that hot sauce + ranch sauce = mouthwatering delight.  This tasty combination is most often ordered up in the form of chicken wings and provides no nutritional value.  Switching to buffalo cauliflower bites instead of wings packs the same great flavor while providing you with the amazing health benefits of cauliflower.

Check out the recipe below for Buffalo Cauliflower AND a simple vegan ranch dressing.  But, before you do, take a look at some of the top health benefits of cauliflower:

  • Cauliflower is a member of the cancer-fighting cruciferous family of vegetables

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Course dinner, lunch, Salad
Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup gluten free flour
  • 1/2 cup filtered water
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with tinfoil and spray with non-stick spray.

    Put your bite sized pieces of cauliflower in a very large bowl (preferably a tupperware that has a lid but not necessary). In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, water, salt, garlic, pepper. Pour the flour mixture over the cauliflower, cover container with lid and shake vigorously to toss the cauli and coat evenly (set the container aside you will need it again).

    Spread onto baking sheet evenly.  Bake for 15 minutes, flipping half way through.

    Combine the melted butter and hot sauce.  After 15 minutes of baking, put your cauli bites back in your tupperware container and now pour the melted Earth Balance and hot sauce over the cauli. Cover and shake to coat evenly.  Put back in the oven and bake another 25 minutes.  Check to make sure they aren't burning but you want them a little bit crispy.
