Crispy breaded and baked cauliflower is served with a spicy and creamy sauce to make this vegan bang bang cauliflower (which happens to also be gluten-free)!
The ‘bang bang’ descriptor here refers to a dish at Bonefish Grill. Although I’ve never eaten at one, I did have a high school crush on a cool senior who worked there, so I would consider myself eminently qualified to recreate it ;).
Originally made with shrimp, not cauliflower, the dish is made by deep-frying its battered main component to a crisp and serving it with a sweet and spicy mayonnaise-based sauce. My homemade oil-free vegan mayonnaise comes to the rescue here. Or your favorite store-bought vegan brand. They’re getting easier and easier to find. Even Hellman’s makes one now!
