Prep Time: 10 minutes            Cook Time: 30 minutes          Yield: 5 servings      


  • 1 large head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce
  • 2 tbsp. plant-based butter, melted 
  • 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice


  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F. Either spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper to prevent sticking.
  2. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix flour, water, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper until the batter achieves a smooth consistency. Add cauliflower to the batter and ensure they are evenly coated.
  3. Arrange the cauliflower on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer, leaving some space between each piece. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes, remembering to flip them over halfway through cooking, until they are lightly browned.
  4. Meanwhile, in a separate small bowl, combine the hot sauce, melted butter, and lemon juice until the mixture is well blended.
  5. Once the cauliflower has been partially baked, brush the buffalo sauce mixture generously onto each piece.
  6. Return the baking sheet to the oven and continue baking until the cauliflower begins to further brown, approximately 10  minutes.
  7. Serve the buffalo cauliflower hot, optionally accompanied by ranch dressing, celery/sweet peas, carrots, and radishes for dipping. Enjoy!

Tips and Tricks:

  • Serve the buffalo cauliflower immediately for the best taste and texture. Garnish with fresh herbs like chopped parsley or cilantro for an extra pop of color and flavor.
  • Use a gluten-free flour or almond flour to make the recipe gluten-free.
