These vegan buffalo cauliflower bites came together after a lot of trial and error. The trick to making oil-free cauliflower crispy (and for it to stay that way) is to wait until after baking to salt the cauliflower bites. You will not need to add salt as the sauces have enough salt to season them. It took a while to find the right coating that would not draw out the moisture and would make the florets crisp, so I am pleased that it has turned out to be a very simple recipe.
Note: The buffalo cauliflower bites will get softer once they are coated with the sauce, so hold off tossing until the very last minute. Either a smoky barbecue sauce or Frank’s hot sauce would work well, but if you are like me and prefer sweet and spicy, then try a little bit of both. Serve with ranch or Caesar dressing on the side if you wish, or whip up a batch of Spinach Ranch Dip.
