For the buffalo cauliflower:

  • 1 cup Califia Farms Better Half
  • 2/3 cup hot sauce
  • 3/4 cup vegan butter
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chile flakes
  • 1/2 full lemon juice
  • 1 pinch salt + pepper to taste
  • 1 full head of cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup chopped lettuce for topping
  • 1 bag tortillas for tacos
  • 1 bag flour your choice

For the avocado sauce:

  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1/2 cup parsley
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 1 full lemon
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 3-4 tsp olive oil


  • Start by making your buffalo sauce by adding hot sauce, vegan butter to a saucepan and melting down. Add cayenne, garlic powder, chile flakes, lime juice and salt and pepper to taste. While that’s melting and combining together, take 1 head of cauliflower and tear or cut apart the florets. Marinate in 1 cup almond milk creamer. Although the creamer has a tad bit of sweetness, it adds a lot of flavor to the buffalo cauliflower! Marinate for 30mins-1hr.
  • Slice your lettuce and get your tortillas ready for charring. In the meantime, make your avocado sauce by placing 1 avocado, 1/2 cup parsley, 1/2 cup cilantro, 1 lemon juice, salt, pepper + 4 garlic cloves and mix in a blender until a creamy avocado sauce is formed. Add olive oil + more salt and pepper to taste. Heat a deep pot with vegetable or peanut oil and take out your cauliflower. Set your station up by dredging your almond milk marinaded cauliflower + placing it in the flour of your choice. Fry until crispy. Set aside to dry on paper towels. Take your fried cauliflower and mix in with the buffalo sauce. Serve alongside with your tortillas, lettuce and the avocado sauce. Eat by itself or make tacos!
