Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Sliders
Hello & Happy Tuesday!!
As much as I love buffalo cauliflower bites now, there was a time where I just didn’t get it. The batter was soggy and it tasted simply like roasted cauliflower with hot sauce. Epic fail.
After getting my feet wet working with cauliflower, I’ve grown to love it! There are truly endless options as to what you can do with it.
While cauli bites are widespread, you can actually use cauliflower to make sandwiches and sliders with whatever marinade & toppings you like! (Asian cauli sammie)
What I like about this recipe is that just like classic buffalo cauli bites, they are effortless, use minimal ingredients, pack heat, flavor, crunch, nutrients, and great aesthetic appeal!
If you’re looking for the perf vegan bite for entertaining or simply just craving a something a lil more than cauli bites..

- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 head of cauliflower (chopped into medium/large portions)
- 1 cup Panko bread crumbs

- 4 tbsp Earth Balance vegan butter
- 6-8 buns
- 1/2 cup Follow Your Heart vegan blue cheese
- 1 cup purple cabbage (chopped)

Create a separate bowl with the Panko. Dip the pieces in the batter (let any excess drip off), then coat in Panko, place on a foil lined pan and bake 15 minutes.
- Melt buffalo sauce with butter on the stove or in the microwave. (optional) Remove from the oven and gently toss in the buffalo sauce. Generously coat the cauliflower, but don't soak. Place back on the pan and bake an additional 5-10 minutes or until cauliflower is tender crisp.
