If you are craving a buffalo chicken sandwich, but don’t want to eat meat, this is the recipe for you. This vegetarian recipe packs buffalo chicken recipe into a healthier and meat-free baked sandwich with all the buffalo flavors. Whether for just a healthy lunch or a game day sandwich, this recipe is for you.


  • 1 medium cauliflower rinsed and cut into florets (about 1 lbs raw)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup Progresso Italian Style Breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons Better Than Bouillon Vegetarian Chicken.
  • 1/4 cup Frank’s Hotsauce 
  • Wish-Bone Lite Blue Cheese (or whatever you would like to use), for topping
  • Iceberg Lettuce, to taste
  • 6 buns
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400° Fahrenheit
  2. In a food processor, process cauliflower until finely cut. (30 seconds to 2 minutes)
  3. In cheesecloth, strain out the water. Use pressure to help remove moisture.
  4. In a large bowl, combine cheese, eggs, oregano, salt, Better than Bouillon Vegetarian Chicken flavoring (optional) and pepper
  5. Patty into six patties, being careful with patties, as they are fragile at this point.
  6. Dredge in bread crumbs
  7. Place patties on a lightly oiled baking pan
  8. Sprinkle about 1 teaspoon of Frank’s Hotsauce on the top side.
  9. Bake on the middle rack for 15 minutes
  10. Flip and brush about another teaspoon of Frank’s Hotsauce on the other side. Use a silicon brush for this side. 
  11. Bake for 15 more minutes
  12. Add to buns and then top with Blue Cheese (about 2 Tablespoons), lettuce, and Frank’s Hot sauce to taste.
  13. Serve


  • Be careful with your patty, as it is a bit fragile until it is fully cooked. Oil your pan and use a metal spatula to handle the patties. 
  • The Cauliflower you should use should be about 1lb of florets. 
  • I use Frank’s Hot Sauce, but use what you like.
  • I use Progresso Italian bread crumbs, but use what you like.
  • After you flip to the second side, use a silicone brush to spread the Franks hot sauce. The brush does NOT work well for the first side.
  • Both your bun choice and your blue cheese choice can greatly impact the calories in this sandwich. Choose best for you.
