Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Sandwich

July 07, 2021

Plant-based eating is about so much more than salads. When it comes to versatile veggies, cauliflower reigns supreme. This trendy vegetable has been showing up on hip restaurant menus for the past few years with good reason: fried, grilled, roasted or raw, cauliflower is easy to make, and showcases the flavor of your favorite sauces.

If you’re making dinner for Meatless Monday, going full vegan, or just switching up your sandwich game, this crispy fried buffalo cauliflower sandwich is just the ticket. Topped with kicky Buffalo Sauce, tender cauliflower is the ideal base for all the fixings. Red cabbage, bell peppers, and pickled onion add just the right amount of crunch to the soft center. Deep fried and fully prepped in just thirty minutes, you won’t be able to resist this buffalo cauliflower sandwich.

How to Make Buffalo Cauliflower

The secret to deep frying your cauliflower? Avocado Oil! Get the golden brown “skin” to make this cauliflower “steak” with a grain-free batter made with garlic and onion powder for authentic taste. Our recipe for a gluten-free mix batter mix adds the perfect crispy, crunchy outer layer to your cauliflower. Just be sure to coat the cauliflower very lightly with the mixture, as even a little bit of batter will puff up.

Primal Kitchen Buffalo Sauce is vegan and made with cashew butter for creamy, feisty flavor–so there’s no need to marinate your veg ahead of time. Once the cauliflower is fully fried, add the sauce to your assembled sandwich.
