This wholesome Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower Bowl is delicious, filling and so easy to make - requiring just one sheet pan!

I’m instantly hooked on any dish that has buffalo and cauliflower, they are the perfect match. My sister and I have been eating this bowl almost every night the past few weeks while we watch our TV show together – it’s that good. Plus, it only takes about 45 minutes from start to finish to make (oh yes!). The prep is minimal and all you need is a sheet pan (minus the brown rice which needs to be cooked per package instructions).

This delicious Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower Bowl is a quick and easy meal that’s packed with protein and nutrients. It is the perfect meal-prep option for the week ahead. It has all the components of a wholesome dish: carbs, protein, vegetables, healthy fats, seeds, etc. You can even add in some extra protein to make it even more filling – although it is pretty filling on it’s own already.

Cauliflower is such a versatile vegetable that is not only tasty but also very nutritious. It’s packed with vitamins and minerals and can be prepared in so many different ways. Using cauliflower as the base for this hearty dish makes it low in carbs and high in protein (the perfect combination!). The chickpeas get crispy in the oven and add extra protein, while the carrots get soft and add a depth of flavor.

I love to top this dish with avocado and vegan ranch to balance the heat from the hot sauce – which can be adjusted to your liking. Then, I top it off with some seeds from extra nutrients!

This is the perfect vegan dinner recipe that even meat lovers will enjoy! Please leave a comment or tag me on Instagram to share your thoughts on this colorful and flavorful Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower Bowl! I’d love to hear your thoughts and see how you enjoy it.
