This recipe takes time, not that much, but I will say the end result is crispy crunchy goodness! Totally gluten free and of course, vegan!

  • 2 heads of smaller cauliflower or 1 large
  • 1 1/2 cups of gluten-free flour
  • 4 teaspoons of garlic powder
  • 4 teaspoons of onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons of smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cracked black pepper
  • 3/4 cup of unsweetened nut-based milk
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • 3 cups of gluten-free bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup of vegan butter
  • 1 1/2 cup of hot sauce (buffalo style)


  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper - necessary so the breeding doesn't stick to the pan.
  3. To prepare the cauliflower, remove the leafy green parts but be careful not to cut any florets.
  4. From the top down, slice in half.
  5. Then slice half in half again, yielding 4 slices.
  6. Mix the flour, garlic, onion, cumin, paprika, salt (if using), pepper, milk, and water together.
  7. You may need to add additional water to loosen the batter if too thick.
  8. The batter should be thick but not overly thick!
  9. Transfer to a wide, shallow dish.
  10. Place the bread crumbs in another shallow, wide dish.
  11. Begin dipping the cauliflower steaks into the wet mixture.
  12. Make sure to coat well.
  13. Then dip into the breadcrumbs.
  14. Coat well.
  15. Then place on the baking sheet.
  16. Bake for 15 minutes then flip to the other side.
  17. Bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  18. While baking, melt your vegan butter and mix with the hot sauce.
  19. Place in a shallow yet wide dish.
  20. Once the cauliflower is done baking, dip into the hot sauce mixture on both sides.
  21. Coat well.
  22. I replaced my parchment paper and added the coated steaks to the freshly-lined baking sheet.
  23. Bake for 15 minutes then flip.
  24. Bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  25. Remove and serve.
