  • cookie sheet

For the BBQ Cauliflower

  • 1 Medium sized head of cauliflower chopped into florets
  • 2 tbs Oilive Oil
  • ¼ cup Barbeque Sauce
  • 4 tbs water to thin bbq sauce
  • 2 tbs franks red hot sauce

  • 2 tbs water
  • tsp white miso paste
  • salt to taste
  • tsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp finely chopped parsley
  • ½ tsp finely chopped dill


For The BBQ Cauliflower

  • Heat pan in oven to 400 degrees (a hot pan will cook the cauliflower quicker and give it more char)
    Toss cauliflower in a large bowl with olive oil salt and pepper to taste. Pour onto hot pan and cook for 30 minutes until cauliflower is softened.
  • While cauliflower is cooking, mix bbq sauce with franks red-hot and water. Once cauliflower is finished cooking place back into big bowl and toss in bbq sauce. Use parchment paper over baking sheet this time to keep from a sticky pan, pour sauced cauliflower. Bake on 450 for 10 minutes. Make your vegan ranch during this time. 

Vegan Ranch

  • Mix all ingredients with a whisk in a medium bowl. Add the warm water 1 tbs at a time. Sauce will slowly thin as you add in a bit of water at a time.
  • assemble salad and add toppings!
