Going vegan does not mean having to give up some of your favorite meaty foods, all you need to do is tweak the ingredients a bit and you're back in business! Buffalo cauliflower has become common place at many vegan restaurants, and for good reason.

Here's the recipe for the vegan ranch:


5 Servings | change


heads of cauliflower
1 cup
brown rice flour (you can use regular flour if you prefer)
1⁄4 teaspoon
garlic power
1⁄4 teaspoon
1⁄4 teaspoon
1 cup
1 cup
olive oil
2 tablespoons
white vinegar
2 cups
vegan hot sauce (we used Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce)
bread crumbs (we used Gia Russa's Whole Grain Bread Crumbs)


Step 1

Break off cauliflower into bite-size or a bit larger chunks.

Step 2

To make the batter, in a bowl combine 1 cup water, 1 cup brown rice flower, 1/4 tsp paprika, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp salt. Mix until smooth.

Step 3

Dip each cauliflower chunk into the batter, and then roll it in the breadcrumbs to get a good coating.

Step 4

Space out the cauliflower on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and then bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees Farenheit (177 degrees Celsius)... keep the oven on at this same temperature because we're going to use it again.

Step 5

While the cauliflower is in the oven, in a sauce pan mix together 1 cup olive oil, 2 tbsp white vinegar, and 2 cups vegan hot sauce. Stir over medium heat for 5-10 minutes.

Step 6

Coat the cauliflower bites with the hot sauce, and then back into the oven for 5 more minutes.
