  • 8 oz cauliflower florets
  • 1/4 cup rice flour
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 oz celery
  • 1 scallion
  • 1 lemon
  • 3 oz green cabbage
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1/2 cup Frank's Red Hot®
  • 3 tbsp butter vegan
  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 1/4 cup bleu cheese dressing vegan
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • pinch salt & pepper


1. Bake the cauliflower

  • Preheat the oven to 450°F. Rinse and chop the cauliflower florets into bite-size pieces. Lightly grease a baking sheet with 1 tsp olive oil. In a large bowl, whisk the rice flour, garlic powder, ¼ cup cold water, and a pinch of salt.
  • Toss the cauliflower in the batter and place on the baking sheet. Bake until crisped, about 10 to 12 minutes. Flip with a spatula and bake for an additional 6 minutes.

2. Prepare celery slaw

  • Rinse and dry the remaining produce. Remove the celery leaves from stalk and place the leaves in a medium bowl. Thinly slice the celery and scallion and add to the bowl. Add the green cabbage, juice from the lemon, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss slaw to combine. Drain and rinse the black beans.

3. Make Buffalo Sauce

  • Place a small saucepan over medium heat and combine the Frank’s Red Hot® with the vegan butter. Whisk sauce until butter is melted, season to taste with salt, and remove from heat. Wrap the corn tortillas in foil and set aside.

4. Finish cauliflower

  • Remove the cauliflower from the oven and brush with Buffalo sauce (the sauce can also be lightly drizzled over the cauliflower). Return Buffalo cauliflower to the oven to bake until crisp, about 7 to 10 minutes.

5. Heat tortillas

  • Place the corn tortillas in the oven for 5 minutes to warm.

6. Build tacos

  • Lay warm corn tortillas on each plate and top with Buffalo cauliflower and a pinch of the celery slaw. Drizzle with Follow Your Heart Bleu Cheese Dressing. Mix the black beans into the remaining celery slaw and serve alongside the tacos with any remaining Buffalo sauce.
