Cut the cauliflower into florets. Mix the ingredients for the buttermilk mixture. Add the cauliflower. Let marinate for at least an hour. Heat oil to 375 degrees in either a mini fryer or pot. Mix the ingredients for the flour mixture in a medium bowl. Add the cauliflower to the flour. After you have breaded the cauliflower, it's time to fry them.

Heat up Frank's Red Hot Sauce in a pan. Once heated, add a couple tablespoons vegan butter and whisk until the sauce is thickened. Toss the crispy cauliflower with the buffalo sauce.
