By now, you must know that my favorite food is tacos. I love how you can take anything, and turn it into a taco. These Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos are full of flavor from spicy buffalo sauce, creamy home-made ranch and crispy crunchy greens. What I love most about these tacos is that the cauliflower is baked rather than fried. That way you get the delicious crispiness without the mess that comes with frying. This recipe is delicious, and it is also gluten free and Keto friendly.
1large head cauliflowercut into bite-sized florets
1cupblanched almond flour
Cooking oil spray of your choice
Baby spinachshredded cabbage, chopped romaine lettuce, or any greens for filling the tacos
For the Ranch:
2tbspfresh lemon juice
2tablespoonsfresh chopped dill
In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and ¼ cup of buffalo sauce until well combined. Set aside.
In a gallon sized Ziploc bag, combine the almond flour, cornstarch, garlic powder, paprika and salt. Use a fork to mix everything together until well combined.
Dip each cauliflower floret, 5 or 6 at a time, into the egg mixture. Make sure that the cauliflower is completely coated.
Next, place the batch of cauliflower that has been coated in the egg mixture into the almond flour coating. Seal the bag and shake it to fully coat the cauliflower.
Preheat your air fryer* to 375 degrees. Spray the basket of the air fryer with cooking spray. Add the cauliflower florets to the basket of the air fryer in a single layer (you may need to do this in 2 batches to ensure crispiness) and spray a little more oil on them. Cook for fifteen to twenty minutes at 375 degrees until crispy.
While the cauliflower is cooking, make the ranch. Add all of the ingredients to a blender or food processor until smooth and creamy.
In a pot, heat up the remaining ½ cup buffalo sauce with 1 tbsp butter. Once it comes to a simmer, add the crispy cauliflower and coat fully.
Assemble your tacos by placing your choice of greens at the bottom of the taco, then top with buffalo cauliflower and ranch dressing.
* If you don't have an air fryer, just place a cooling rack on top of a sheet pan (or if you don't have that, line a sheet pan with parchment paper). Then follow the same procedure in step 5, but instead bake the cauliflower in the oven.
