For The Buffalo Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • Pinch of onion powder
  • 1 tsp vinegar

For The Honey Mustard Sauce

  • 4 Tbsp honey or agave syrup
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp coconut oil

For The Crispy Cauliflower

  • 1-2 large heads cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/8 cup cornstarch
  • 1-2 Tbsp Frank's Red Hot Sauce
  • Salt & Pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • For either sauce, first microwave the coconut oil for 30 seconds to a minute, until it has liquified. Then whisk in the other ingredients and set aside.
  • For the cauliflower, break the head into small bite size pieces. Put in a large bowl.
  • Melt the coconut oil for 30-60 seconds in the microwave and pour it over the cauliflower, stir or shake (covered) to coat evenly. Then sprinkle on the cornstarch and gently toss until it is distributed evenly. Drizzle the hot sauce, salt & pepper evenly over the cauliflower as well.
  • Put cauliflower on a baking sheet lined with parchment and bake for 20 minutes, turning over after 10 minutes.
  • Pour desired sauce over cauliflower and serve while hot, with vegan ranch dressing on the side.
