To make these yummy buffalo cauliflower tacos, first preheat your oven to 425 F. Prepare a large baking pan covered with parchment paper.

Next, in a medium bowl, add the melted butter, almond milk, hot sauce, and maple syrup and stir with a whisk until blended. Then add the garlic powder, paprika, and nutritional yeast and stir. Lastly, add the all purpose flour slowly, while whisking, until blended.

Prepare a plate with the panko breadcrumbs laid out in a thin layer.

Using your hands, add each cauliflower floret (one by one) to the wet mixture. 

Remove each cauliflower floret from the bowl (shake excess sauce if necessary), and roll in the panko breadcrumbs. Place in an even layer on the baking sheet. The cauliflower should not be touching.

One by one, add each cauliflower floret to the wet mixture. Then transfer to the panko mix and roll until coated in breadcrumbs.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until cooked throughout and crispy. Remove from heat.

To assemble the tacos, heat the white corn tortillas on a skillet on both sides until warm. Add a few pieces of baked cauliflower, and top with chopped green onions and red cabbage. Drizzle a little more Frank’s Red Hot and vegan ranch, if desired.

This recipe serves 4 (about 8 tacos). **These tacos are best served immediately.
