Whole Food Plant-Based Recipe: Creamy Buffalo Sauce

Need a spicy and tangy sauce to top your sandwiches, quinoa bowl, corn on the cob, pasta salad, or roasted cauliflower wings? This simple whole food plant-based buffalo sauce is not only easy to make in the blender, but a great substitution for the (not-so-whole-food-plant-based) buffalo sauce we grew up on. Try a buffalo chickpea wrap by mixing the creamy buffalo sauce into mashed chickpeas, and stuffing it into a whole wheat wrap with lettuce, tomato, and celery! Voila: A healthy spin on buffalo chicken wrap!

Prep Time: 15 minutes



1 tsp cayenne pepper

1 ½ tsp garlic powder

½ cup of distilled vinegar

½ tsp of sea salt

1 cup canned diced tomatoes

2 tsp maple syrup

1 tsp paprika

½ cup raw cashews, soaked in water until soft


  1. Blend ingredients in blender until smooth
