Buffalo Cauliflower


Here is a tasty vegan snack or side. There’s something about a homemade Buffalo Sauce that’s so satisfying! I love the combination of ranch and veggies with buffalo sauce.

The batter is so easy and is gluten-free.

Coat the cauliflower in the batter.

Put the flowerettes on a baking sheet.

Serve with Vegan Ranch Dressing and vegan buffalo sauce. The link to the ranch dressing is in the HERE. For my Buffalo Sauce, I added ghost pepper sauce as I like spicy food, but you don’t need to add it.
