Since going vegan I began researching vegan dinner ideas like crazy. Breakfast and lunch were pretty much under control, but dinner was another story!
I’m now happy to report that I have enough vegan dinner ideas for a lifetime!
With that said, these Spicy Buffalo Sauce Cauliflower Tacos are at the top of my vegan dinner ideas list! Not only that, but the taste-testers agree – vegans and non-vegans LOVE these hot and crispy spicy tacos. They literally disappear so quick that I now double the recipe so I can enjoy leftovers for lunch the next day.
Fact about me: I attended undergraduate and graduate school in Buffalo, NY so I am SUPER snobby when it comes to buffalo sauce recipes. Yep, you can trust me when I say – this recipe meets my ridiculously high buffalo sauce recipe standards! For this recipe I special ordered Anchor Bar Buffalo Wing Sauce because it’s my favorite. I promise, it tastes the BEST. It comes from the bar where buffalo sauce was created! And, no – no-one is sponsoring this post! I just love this buffalo sauce that much.
Also, I’ll admit, I used to slather my pizza and wings in blue cheese dressing, so finding a substitute was a challenge, but … this Avocado Sauce is a winner. No, it tastes nothing like Blue Cheese dressing, but it sure as heck tastes incredible with these tacos!
I seriously hope ya’ll love these tacos as much as me! They’re perfect for Taco Tuesday or any night of the week you’re craving something spicy!
They make great party appetizers too!
Did I mention they’re ready in 20 minutes?
Yep. Super easy and quick, great for weeknights!
