Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos

These tacos are so delicious and perfect for any occasion. Bake Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos on a weeknight, at your next get together, or at your Super Bowl party. Whatever the reason, both meat eaters and veggie-heads alike will enjoy your tasty creation.

Eating this meal tastes like you’re chowing down on delicious bar food without packing in all the unhealthy ingredients and calories that come along with pub food.

The Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos do pack a little bit of a spice, so adjust the buffalo hot sauces as necessary for your taste pallet. I made these for Brigette, who can’t handle spice (not even pepper) and she was dancing all over the kitchen! It was both dinner and a show!

The cauliflower, topped with chopped cabbage and my Vegan Ranch Dressing is a must! The dressing helps to offset the spice of the tacos and really does elevate these tacos to the next level. This topped with the slightly crispy texture of the cauliflower, is what makes this meal a home run!

Recipe Notes

*You can omit the bbq sauce, however, I find mixing it with the buffalo sauce gives the tacos a balanced while still spicy flavour.
