Make New Soul Buffalo Cauliflower
  1. In a dutch oven or large heavy bottom sauce pot add oil and heat until 350 degrees.
  2. Then cut your cauliflower into small to medium pieces.
  3. In a large mixing bowl whisk flour, cornstarch, garlic powder, salt, black pepper, and cayenne together. Add in the sparkling water a little at a time until the batter is not too thick or thin. It should coat the back of a spoon without excess dripping.
  4. Working with a few pieces at a time dip the cauliflower into the tempura batter tossing to coat evenly. Repeat with the remaining cauliflower and batter.
  5. While working in batches fry the cauliflower until the pieces are evenly golden brown, about 7 to 9 minutes. Remove the cauliflower with a spider and drain on a paper towel-lined plate or baking sheet.
  6. Make the Vegan Buffalo Sauce: In a medium wok over medium heat, melt the non-dairy butter then add the hot sauce, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, and agave and mix.
  7. Add the fried cauliflower to the sauce in the wok and gently toss to coat evenly. Garnish the New Soul Buffalo Cauliflower with parsley.
  8. Serve the cauliflower right away with Vegan Ranch Dressing for dipping and carrots and celery on the side.
Make the Vegan Ranch Dressing:
  1. In a medium mixing bowl mix together the vegan mayo, dill, garlic powder, onion powder, agave, salt, and pepper to taste.
  2. Serve this as a dipping sauce for the New Soul Buffalo Cauliflower.
