breaded buffalo cauliflower


  • 2 medium heads cauliflower (about 2 pounds)
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1/2 -2/3 cup Sriracha or similar hot sauce
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • ½ tsp soy sauce or tamari
  • Cut up celery and carrot sticks
  • Your favorite dipping sauce


  1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly oil baking sheet. Chop up cauliflower into little “trees”, no bigger than your thumb.
  2. Wisk water and flour together, being careful to not have lumps. Toss cauliflower into wet flour mixture, ensuring the pieces are evenly coated. Spread out on baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes, turning them half way through the baking process.
  3. In a small sauce pan mix oil, sriracha, vinegar, and soy sauce together.Heat on low until just bubbly.
  4. In a large bowl, mix warm sauce and roasted cauliflower together. Pour back onto baking sheet and roast for another 5-10 minutes, until warm.
  5. Serve warm alongside celery, carrots sticks and your favorite dipping sauce.
Makes enough for 4-6 people.
