WHAT GOES INTO VEGAN CAULIFLOWER WINGS:

INGREDIENT NOTES

  • Panko breadcrumbs – work best for this recipe, but you can substitute them for any brand of vegan breadcrumbs.
  • BBQ sauce – you can use your favourite store-bought vegan BBQ sauce or you can make up a batch of our homemade vegan BBQ sauce that is simply divine with these cauliflower wings.
  • Cauliflower florets – you can either buy the cauliflower already cut into florets or you can buy a large head of cauliflower and cut it into florets yourself.
  • Soy milk – can be replaced with a different non-dairy milk but thick, creamy options work best which is why soy milk is a great option.

Instructions
  • Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Add soy milk, all purpose flour, cornstarch, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, ground black pepper and cayenne pepper to a large mixing bowl and whisk until combined.
  • Add panko breadcrumbs to a second bowl with salt and pepper.
  • Now add cauliflower florets to the batter in the large bowl and toss them so that they are well coated with batter.
  • Transfer the pieces of cauliflower in batches to the breadcrumbs bowl and gently toss them in the breadcrumbs so that they are coated on all sides.
  • Place the cauliflower florets on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and toss the cauliflower with bbq sauce in a large bowl to coat them.
  • Return them to the baking sheet. Place them back in the oven to bake for a further 10 minutes.
  • Remove them from the oven, brush with more bbq sauce before serving, if you like, and serve!

Notes

  1. Cauliflower florets – you can either buy the cauliflower already cut into florets or you can buy a large head of cauliflower and cut it into florets yourself.
  2. Soy milk – can be replaced with a different non-dairy milk but thick, creamy options work best which is why soy milk is a great option.
  3. Panko breadcrumbs – work best for this recipe, but you can substitute them for any brand of vegan breadcrumbs.
  4. BBQ sauce – you can use your favorite store-bought vegan bbq sauce or you can make up a batch of our homemade vegan BBQ sauce that is simply divine with these cauliflower wings.
  5. Make it gluten-free: If you’d like to make these BBQ cauliflower wings gluten-free then my recommendation is to switch the all purpose flour for a gluten-free all purpose flour blend and to use gluten-free bread crumbs.
  6. Storing: These wings are at their best when hot and crispy. However, leftovers do keep well in a covered container in the fridge for 3-4 days. They do tend to lose their crispiness but they still taste totally delicious. You can reheat them in the microwave or in the oven at 350°F (180°C) until heated through.
