on a Sunday, we Epic Cheesy Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Dip because that is the ONLY way to get rid of the sunday scaries, ya know? it’s the easiest dip in the whole world to make and it’s shockingly so much better for you. the taste is so amazing, you won’t even believe this is made with predominately cauliflower.
then to add another creamy component, you’re going to need some thiiiiick coconut yogurt.
my favorite to use for savory recipes is the brand coco june. you’re going to need a total of 3/4 cup!
you could also use culina or even kite hill but whatever you use, make sure it’s thick.
as for buffalo sauce, i went with my absolute favorite, primal kitchen. it’s totally vegan and totally blows other ones i’ve tried out of the water.
you can find it at Whole Foods, sprouts and i’m sure other places, just check their store locator.
everything gets tossed into a blender by the way, so the prep process is beyond easy. you’re going to need a large blender and one that is high powered.
i used my vitamix and other brands will totally work but you’re going to need something comparable.
by the way, the cauliflower is going to be baked instead of steamed. this is going to really elevate the flavors.
you’re only going roast the cauliflower with extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil and then we can add the seasonings to the blender.
while i used a 9 x 13 casserole dish, the dip will be thiiiiick, so i do recommend using a larger baking tray if you can!
the baking time will still be the same, so don’t worry about that :). ooooh and then there’s double cheese in this recipe.
the recipe yields a lot, so just keep that in mind before you make it! the dip is best served for many people!
then, for the topping, i added a whole back of vegan parmesan. the brand is Good Planet and i love it!
i also heard that forager has a good vegan parmesan cheese! there’s actually quite a few brands out there with vegan parm but Good Planet is my fave.
it melts decently but the flavor is phenomenal! when it comes to the spiciness level, you can add however much or little that you like.
i added 1/3 cup of the buffalo sauce and then there’s some vegan pepper jack cheese mixed in and that has some spiciness to it.
then, i added more buffalo sauce to the top, just a drizzle to top everything off!
