Buffalo cauliflower can also serve as a vegan alternative to Buffalo wings.  Classic Buffalo sauce is not vegan as it contains butter, but you can easily make a vegan Buffalo sauce yourself by mixing 2/3 cups of hot pepper sauce with 1/3 cup of olive oil or coconut oil.  When you use this vegan Buffalo sauce mixture in this recipe, you get perfect vegan Buffalo cauliflower!

Cauliflower has a very mild flavor of its own, so it really takes on the flavor of the sauce it’s cooked in.  In this case, a Buffalo sauce!
