1/2 cup cashews, soaked for 4 hours and drained

Juice of one large lemon

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp Dijon mustard

3/4 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped

1 tbsp fresh chives, chopped

1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

Buffalo Cauliflower:

1 head cauliflower

3/4 cup flour

1 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp paprika

1 tsp garlic powder

1 cup water

1/2 cup vegan buffalo sauce


To make the ranch:

  1. Combine soaked cashews, water, lemon juice, olive oil, dijon mustard, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a high speed blender.
  2. Blend on high until very smooth and everything is well combined, adding one or two tablespoons more of water to loosen if needed.
  3. Transfer the ranch to a small bowl and stir in fresh herbs. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

To make the buffalo cauliflower:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F and line a rimmed sheet pan with a sheet of For Good parchment paper.
  2. Chop the cauliflower into large florets.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, paprika, and garlic powder. Add the water and whisk to form a thin batter. Dip each of the florets in the batter, coating completely. Remove from the batter and transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes, flipping the florets halfway through the baking time, until the edges are browned and cauliflower is crispy.
  5. Transfer cauliflower to a large bowl with the buffalo sauce and stir gently to coat. Serve with vegan ranch.
