Helpful Tips For Making Buffalo Cauliflower Wraps
Want an even crispier cauliflower? If so, just bake them for a few minutes longer. The great thing about making your own wraps is that you can control how long you bake your cauliflower. Just coat the florets in the buffalo sauce at the end of baking. Otherwise, it will burn in the oven.
Prepare the Pan
Make sure to line your baking pan with parchment paper, foil, or a silicone baking mat. This recipe is a bit messy as it bakes, and you will have to scrub a lot to remove the stuck on bits if you don't line your baking tray.
If you want to use frozen cauliflower instead of fresh, just allow the veggies to thaw completely first. Then dredge them in the mixture and bake as usual. You won't have to bake your cauliflower quite as long if you have smaller pieces, so adjust the baking time as you see fit.
Variations to Buffalo Cauliflower Wraps
You can dredge your cauliflower in any flavor of sauce you want. A BBQ or even dry ranch powder added to the flour mixture could give your cauliflower a really great flavor.
You can use a tortilla in place of the flatbread if you want. I have used a spinach tortilla and it added some great flavor to the wrap!
You are in control of what toppings you use. Try drizzling on some homemade vegan ranch, blue cheese, or even nondairy yogurt. In terms of veggies, you can use any kind you want. And of course, you could always just eat your buffalo cauliflower without toppings, too.
Buffalo Cauliflower Wraps FAQs
How to know when cauliflower is done?
You will know your cauliflower is done when it is a bit browned on the outside. Also make sure that the wet mixture you dip the cauliflower in is firmed up and cooked. The cauliflower will be fork tender when you poke it.
Is buffalo sauce hot?
Buffalo sauce does carry quite a bit of heat. You can find some brands that sell a mild buffalo sauce which isn't as spicy as the original.
How do you store leftover cauliflower?
You can store your leftover cauliflower for up to 2–3 days in the fridge. It will be a lot softer but will still be delicious when you reheat it.
