The best vegan buffalo recipes:
How to make Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos:
Listen up, I am obsessed with simple recipes! These buffalo cauliflower tacos are no exception. I love this recipe, because you can make the cauliflower and tofu in an air-fryer! If you do not have an air-fryer, you can definitely make this in the oven. Honestly I sometimes prefer making this in the oven, depending on how much cauliflower I have.
To make the buffalo cauliflower and tofu for this recipe, just follow the directions for my Air-fryer Buffalo Cauliflower. You will need to add a tad bit more flour (about 1/2 cup more of each kind), and you’re good to go. I recently discovered the life hack: shake and bake. I always thought this was a joke, but then I actually tried it out and I was shook! It’s incredible! When you add your ingredients to the bag and shake it, it evenly coats everything perfectly. I know it may sound ridiculous, but I am telling you it will change your life!
How to make tofu taste good:
No matter if you love tofu, or hate tofu, this recipe is guaranteed to be a new favorite! I will be completely transparent and share my bias towards tofu: I am obsessed. I am one of those psychos who can eat plain tofu and actually likes it. However I understand that not everyone is like this, especially non-vegans. The good news is that these buffalo cauliflower tacos are one of the best recipes to make tofu taste good! How do I do it? There’s a couple tricks I like to use.
First, make sure that you are pressing the tofu. I strongly encourage you to invest in a tofu press. I used to press my tofu with random heavy objects in my kitchen,. However the quality of my tofu has significantly improved since investing in a tofu press. Pressing the tofu strains out excess water. This allows you to add more flavor to the tofu while also creating a meatier texture.
Second, make sure to add lots of flavor! One reason I love tofu is because it is incredible at absorbing flavors. This is great, because you can use the seasonings/marinades to create a super unique and custom flavor, such as the buffalo flavor featured in these buffalo cauliflower tofu tacos!
