Buffalo Cauliflower Sandwich

While living in England, one of my housemates whipped up Hot for Food’s vegan buffalo cauliflower sandwich.  For the first time in my life, I finished off my leftovers and was sad I had none left.  I’ve never felt so much like Patrick Star in my life!

But all Spongebob references aside, this was by far one of the most delicious sandwiches I’ve had the opportunity to consume.

Me being me, I made a few adjustments, and our vegan buffalo cauliflower sandwich was born.

My biggest difficulty so far is the dressing.  Since Vegenaise is impossible to find in my middle of nowhere town, it’s up to me to make my own.  Unfortunately, none of my blenders open on top, which complicates the emulsification process a bit.  So, my dressing tends to be a lot runnier than I’d like, but it’s delicious nevertheless!

Our buffalo sauce is quite different than the inspiration, too, but I think it adds a nice touch. You can play around with the flavours, too! Prefer your sandwich less spicy? Adjust accordingly.  Want to up the spice? Go for it!  Either way, I can just about guarantee that you’ll love this sandwich–hopefully as much as I do!

Try it for yourself and see!

Buffalo Cauliflower Sandwich

A delicious, healthy buffalo cauliflower sandwich.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Servings 2 sandwiches

Ingredients

  • 2 buns I split the steaks in half sometimes, so feel free to use more buns!

Cauliflower "Steak"

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Buffalo Sauce

  • 1/4 cup hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 stick vegan butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

Ranch sauce

  • 1/2 cup vegan mayo
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 F.

  2. Clean cauliflower and slice in half. From each half, cut one steak, about 1/2 inch thick. Save the remaining cauliflower to make buffalo cauliflower wings or your favourite cauliflower recipe!

  3. Whisk flour, non-dairy milk, water, and spices in a bowl. Pour into a baking dish and use to coat the steaks completely. Place on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes.

  4. While they are baking, prepare your sauces.

  5. Prepare vegan mayo if you haven't already, then whisk all ingredients together. Chill until the remaining ingredients are ready.

  6. Melt butter, then combine with remaining ingredients to form buffalo sauce. Add to baking dish and coat baked cauliflower. Place back in oven and bake for another 25 minutes.

  7. Add steaks to bun with dressing and condiments of choice. I've used Hot for Food's suggestion of lettuce, tomato, and onion, and substituted avocado from time to time. They're all wonderful!
