Cauliflower Wings Recipe

Cauliflower Wings

Cauliflower wings are a great way to substitute buffalo/BBQ chicken wings. They are baked to make them a little more healthier and easier on the waistline without tasting “healthy”. Now I am not a big fan of cauliflower but I can definitely have it like this.  I adjusted the recipe to my own liking so feel free to do the same.

Lets get cooking…

  1. Preheat oven, wash and cut cauliflower head into florets/bite sized pieces.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl
  3. Add your milk and water to the bowl and mix again. (the batter shouldn’t be too thick or too drippy.
  4. Dip each floret into the mixture and coat evenly. Tap off the excess batter a couple of times on the side of the bowl.
  5. Lay florets in an even layer on the tray without over crowding. Tip: Use baking sheet/parchment paper to avoid the batter coming off and sticking on your tray.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown, flipping the florets over half way through to get all sides golden brown and crispy.
  7. While the cauliflower is baking get your wing sauces ready. In a small saucepan on low heat melt your vegan butter and mix in hot sauce. Remove from the heat just as it starts to melt. Stir together and set aside (I also made my own BBQ sauce, let me know if you want the recipe for that).
  8. Once the cauliflower is done it’s first bake in the batter, remove them from the oven and put all the baked florets into a mixing bowl with the wing sauce and coat evenly. Then spread all the florets back onto the same baking sheet.
  9. Bake in the oven for another 25 minutes, flipping the florets over half way through.
