VEGAN BUFFALO CAULIFLOWER

I created this recipe nearly two years ago while not even working in my own kitchen. I had seen countless Buffalo cauliflower recipes on Pinterest, but they all looked soggy and just not reminiscent of this classic concept. I had attempted various versions and they all just fell short of what I had hoped for.. 

VEGAN BUFFALO CAULIFLOWER

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup almond milk
  2. 1 cup white or whole wheat flour
  3. 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  4. pepper to taste
  5. 1 tablespoon oil
  6. 1 head of cauliflower (chopped into bite size pieces)
  7. 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  8. 1/2 cup buffalo sauce
  9. 4 tbsp Earth Balance vegan butter
  10. 1/2 cup Follow Your Heart vegan blue cheese
  11. 2 tbsp chopped green onion

Instructions
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut cauliflower into bite sized pieces discarding the core. Combine almond milk, flour, garlic powder, pepper and olive oil in a large bowl. Create a separate bowl with the Panko. Dip the pieces in the batter (let any excess drip off), then coat in Panko, place on a foil lined pan and bake 15 minutes.
  • Melt buffalo sauce with butter on the stove or in the microwave. (optional) Remove from the oven and gently toss in the buffalo sauce. Generously coat the cauliflower, but don't soak. Place back on the pan and bake an additional 5-10 minutes or until cauliflower is tender crisp.
