Vegan Buffalo Sauce – How to Make 

First, combine the hot sauce, 1/2 cup vegan butter, vineagar, worcestershire sauce, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder into a pot over medium heat. 

Next, bring the ingredients to a boil. 

Once boiling, turn the heat down to a simmer, and simmer the mixture for 1-2 minutes. 

Vegan buffalo chicken never tasted so good! Who says vegan recipes can’t be bomb. 🙂

Recipe Notes

This recipe calls coconut aminos. But you can substitute 1/2 teaspoon vegan worcestershire sauce if you prefer. I recommend this brand. Either option is great!

Melted vegan butter works great in this recipe and has the same flavor profile and texture as real butter. 

This recipe is perfect for vegan buffalo wings, or vegan buffalo cauliflower bites. Both can be made in an air fryer or regular oven.

It’s quite a bit different than vegan bbq sauce. Buffalo sauce is more of a spicy sauce, where bbq sauce is more tangy. 

This dairy free buffalo sauce will last in the fridge for up to 1 week.
