Vegan Crispy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

By Forks over Knives  
It took a lot to find the right coating that would not draw out the moisture and would make the florets crisp, but it turned out to be a very simple recipe. Serve with vegan ranch or vegan Caesar dressing on the side if you wish.

Note: The buffalo cauliflower bites will get softer once they are coated with the sauce, so hold off tossing until the very last minute.

Makes 6 cups Ready in 35 minutes


• cups brown rice flour

• 2 tablespoons almond flour

• 1 tablespoon tomato paste

• 2 teaspoons garlic powder

• 2 teaspoons onion powder

• 2 teaspoons smoked paprika

• 1 teaspoon dried parsley

• 1 head cauliflower, cut into 2-inch florets

• cup Frank’s hot sauce or your favorite hot sauce


1. Preheat oven to 450F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. Combine the brown rice flour, almond flour, tomato paste, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and parsley and cup of water in a blender. Puree until the batter is smooth and thick. Transfer to a bowl and add the cauliflower florets; toss until the florets are well coated with the batter.

3. Arrange the cauliflower in a single layer on the prepared baking sheets, making sure that the florets do not touch one another. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until crisp on the edges. They will not get crispy all over while still in the oven.

4. Remove from the heat and let stand for 3 minutes to crisp up a bit more. Transfer to a bowl and drizzle with the sauce. Serve immediately.
