Recipe: Mohawk Bend's Buffalo Cauliflower

After posting this vegan Buffalo Cauliflower on Instagram, I got several requests for the recipe!  I don't blame you all, when I first heard of this dish I was definitely intrigued.  Mohawk Bend is one of the first places, that I know of, that made this.  I wonder if they invented them?  So many places make a copycat version of this now.  I love this version - it's only got a couple of ingredients but I would definitely not make it myself, just because I'm not somebody who likes to fry food at home. This is definitely a dish I enjoy whenever I'm at Mohawk Bend, usually as an appetizer, with friends.  The restaurant is amazing, and is kindly sharing their recipe with us.  If you like Buffalo Wings, you're gonna love them.
