The Best Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Recipe

gluten free buffalo cauliflower recipe

There are so many recipes out there for the best vegan buffalo cauliflower but I couldn’t find one that was exactly how I wanted it to taste so I made it myself. It took quite a few tries, a variety of ingredients but I finally got it just right. I didn’t want it coated in a batter or fried as I was trying to make it healthy yet still super tasty (you’ll want to use a no-sugar added version of buffalo sauce). This version is exactly what I was looking for: flavorful, vegan, & really easy to make. I especially enjoy them in some taco shells (these are my favorite) with a little vegan ranch drizzled over the top. YUM!
