INGREDIENTS FOR BUFFALO CAULIFLOWER TACOS (VEGAN):
- Hard taco shells or soft tacos
- Red onion, diced

Ingredients if you want your Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos with Slaw:
To make the Vegan Taco Slaw:
Whisk apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, celery salt, dried dill, and black pepper together in a small bowl. Set this aside. In a larger bowl, combine grated cabbage, carrots, and cilantro (if you don’t like cilantro, you can use parsley instead). Pour the dressing over the vegetables and gently mix together. If you prefer more dressing, add a little more apple cider vinegar and maple syrup. This slaw is best made the night before and left in the fridge to marinate and allow the flavours to absorb.
To make the Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Wings:
Add garlic powder, nutritional yeast, salt, and cornstarch to a large bowl. Add the melted coconut oil or vegan butter, and Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. Whisk until combined. Add more hot sauce or oil if needed. Toss in cauliflower florets, and coat with sauce. To bake, add cauliflower to a lined baking sheet, and bake at 425 degrees for 25 minutes, flipping half way through cook time. In the air fryer, add cauliflower to the air fryer basket, and cook at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, shaking half way through cook time.
I like to use hard shell tacos for this recipe, because the cauliflower wings aren’t breaded, the shell gives a perfect crunch to these tacos. You can use any kind of tortilla you prefer. To assemble the taco, start with some Vegan Taco Slaw, add some of the cooked cauliflower wings, diced onion, and a drizzle of vegan ranch. Garnish with cilantro and a wedge of lime.
