Ingredients

  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of milk (or plant-based milk for a vegan option)
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 cup of breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup of buffalo sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter (or vegan butter)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, milk, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper until you have a smooth batter.
  3. Dip each cauliflower floret into the batter, allowing any excess to drip off, then coat it with breadcrumbs. Place the coated florets on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the cauliflower is golden brown and crispy.
  5. While the cauliflower is baking, mix the buffalo sauce and melted butter in a separate bowl.
  6. Once the cauliflower is done, remove it from the oven and drizzle the buffalo sauce mixture over the florets. Toss to coat evenly.
  7. Return the cauliflower to the oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbly and the cauliflower is extra crispy.
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving.
