Vegan Buffalo Burritos Ingredients


Mix the dry ingredients for the buffalo batter.

3/4 cup of flour

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp paprika

2 tsp cumin

1/3 tsp salt

1/3 tsp pepper

Gradually whisk in the wet ingredients until the dry ingredients have dissolved, but the batter is still sticky enough to coat and cling to the cauliflower. Add 1 cup of vegan buffalo sauce, such as Frank’s Red Hot. Add additional water as needed.

dry ingredients for buffalo batter


Cut 8 oz of tofu into bite-sized pieces. toss it in the batter until well coated.

The tofu I used in this example was pre-baked, but if you are working with ordinary firm tofu, you should press it under moderate weight for twenty minutes to remove some of its moisture.

battering tofu


Bake the tofu at 425 degrees Fahrenheit until the batter becomes crispy. This will take between 20 and 30 minutes.

When the tofu is baked, chill it in the fridge.

Repeat the process for the cauliflower. Coat in the buffalo batter and bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for between 20 and 30 minutes.

When the cauliflower bites are baked, chill them int he fridge. These burritos are best eaten cold.

Dice the bell peppers into tiny pieces.

diced bell peppers


Mix the diced bell peppers with 1/2 cup of shredded carrots. Toss in 1/4 cup of lime juice and 1/4 tsp of black pepper. Set aside in
a cold place. This filling lends a fresh Mexican flavor to the burritos that complements, rather than clashes with, the tart buffalo sauce.
