Cooking Time




  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup white or whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 head of cauliflower (chopped into bite size pieces)
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs

  • 4 tbsp vegan butter

  3. Combine almond milk, flour, garlic powder, pepper and olive oil in a large bowl.

  5. Melt buffalo sauce with butter on the stove or in the microwave.
  6. Remove from the oven and gently toss in the buffalo sauce. Generously coat the cauliflower, but don't soak.
