Nashville Hot Cauliflower (Vegan!)

Nashville Hot Cauliflower

Nashville hot cauliflower! Spiced with hot sauce, cayenne, chili powder and paprika. Made with a easy marinade of almond, white rice flour, vegan creamer and then baked in the oven. Topped with more spicy sauce and served with bread + pickles.

Inspired by a meal favorite: nashville hot chicken which is a spicy fried chicken specialty from nashville that is SO good + this is my take on a vegan version. my dreams have officially came true.
