Whoa whoa whoaaa. Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos with Avocado Crema are hap-pen-ning. This is not a sad moment on Pinch of Yum.
There is a restaurant in St. Paul, Minnesota called J. Selby’s. I adore it. It’s a “plant-based eatery” with pear ginger kombucha on tap, every kind of vegan bowl you could ever dream of, and deep fried buffalo cauliflower “wings” that will rock your world. The origins of this buffalo cauliflower taco obsession can be traced back to many kombuchas, “wings,” and burrito bowls shared by Bjork and I at the bar of this little restaurant. If you live in Minnesota and you want a fun place to eat, J. Selby’s will be your place.
Buffalo cauliflower (at least this version) is fairly simple to make – dip and bake – but flavor-wise, it’s not for the faint of heart. It packs some heat and a boatload of tang, like any good buffalo bar food. Its mostly-crispy breading sucks up the hot sauce and gives these little nuggets so much fiery flavor.
