Earth Angel Vegan’s buffalo cauliflower is lip smacking good. When you get that craving for some spicy junk food …this hits the spot. This tangy treat can be made in the air fryer or oven. I like to eat it with crisp celery or put it on top of creamy mac & cheese. Perfect for game day or your holiday party!
One head of cauliflower chopped into bite-size piece
1 cup chickpea flour
3/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
Your favorite Cayenne pepper hot sauce
Smoked paprika (optional)
Dried parsley or dairy free ranch seasoning (optional)
If making it in the oven preheat the oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl with a lid whisk up the batter which consists of chickpea flour water and garlic salt. Add the cauliflower and a few shakes of hot sauce and shake until every piece is coated. Turn it out onto your prepared baking sheet. Then sprinkle with smoked paprika and parsley if desired and bake in the oven for 35 to 45 minutes until your desired doneness and crispness is obtained. When it is done ….sprinkle or brush on the hot sauce …as much as or as little as you like!
In the air fryer, which is my preferred method, place cauliflower in a single layer and air fry at 390 degrees 5 minutes at a time until desired crispness. Turn pieces as needed. When done toss pieces in hot sauce.
I like to eat this with crisp cool celery. You could serve some vegan ranch dressing on the side. It is super delicious on top of vegan macaroni and cheese.
