Teresa’s Buffalo Cauliflower Recipe

My name is Teresa, and I'm going to share with you one of my favorite alternative chicken recipes! Don't miss out on all the fun—vegetarians can enjoy this fave, too!

(Total time: 55 minutes)
Makes 4 servings


3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3/4 cup milk or unsweetened alternative milk
1 head cauliflower
1/4 cup buffalo sauce or hot sauce
2 tablespoons coconut oil or vegetable oil
1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup


Preheat the oven to 450˚F (230˚C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, add the flour, paprika, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and milk, and stir until well-combined. Break the head of cauliflower into florets, about 1.5 inches wide. Add the cauliflower florets to the batter, making sure each piece is evenly coated. Arrange the coated cauliflower on the baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the buffalo sauce, coconut oil, and honey or maple syrup, and stir until evenly combined. Brush the buffalo sauce mixture on the cauliflower and bake for another 20 minutes. Dip them in your favorite ranch dressing or make a buffalo bowl with rice and beans! Enjoy!
