Buffalo Cauliflower Bowl with Cashew Ranch

Growing up in Western NY we liked our buffalo wings, to be honest, we liked everything Buffalo, from dips to sandwiches, to fries… you get the idea.  When we adopted a vegan lifestyle, we naturally jumped on the buffalo cauliflower bandwagon.  We loved it every way we tried it, and we loved it every time! This time we wanted to give it another twist and make it into a grain bowl.  If you follow us on Instagram (@veginspired, @veginspiredchef), you know we love our bowls and have been “bowl crazy” lately.  We prep the veggies and voila, a quick and easy dinner.  Naturally, after a 65 degree February day full of fun, we wanted something quick! Try your hand at a Buffalo Cauliflower Bowl with Cashew Ranch.  Be sure to tag us on Instagram and Facebook and use the hashtag #veginspiredfoodie
