I’m going to be honest with you, I’m not a huge fan of buffalo sauce. I don’t hate it, it’s just not really on my radar. I’ve gone most of my life without and I would say I’ve lived a good life.
But that has changed.
I had an idea for a recipe and I was going to need to rely heavily on buffalo sauce so I started looking around. Store-bought was out of the question because I couldn’t find any that any redeemable qualities. That left making my own, which I’m all about anyway. Well, there were a few good ones out there but a lot of them relied heavily on butter and Worchester sauce (which I will NEVER be able to pronounce properly) and I didn’t want to use those.
Long story short, I created a buffalo sauce that’s made with real ingredients and doesn’t include butter. It is really easy to make and you can put it on anything that you would use buffalo sauce. Wings, cauliflower bites, celery, fingers…. Also heads up, you’re going to want to make a batch of this for Friday’s recipe!
- 1/4 cup hot sauce, I used this one, but use your favorite or make your own!
- 1 tsp tomato paste
- 1/2 tsp coconut aminos (or soy sauce)
- 1 tbsp white vinegar
- 1/2 tsp molasses
- 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 2 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
- Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Transfer to an airtight container, like a mason jar, and store in your fridge for up to 2 weeks.
Simple and tasty, just the way I like it! You can easily double or triple this recipe to make enough for all your buffalo needs!
