Tips

  • Cut the cauliflower into large pieces. Cut off the stem of the cauliflower and cut it into small pieces of the same size. Bite-sized cauliflower is ideal. Otherwise, the pieces will be mush.
  • Make sure to cut your cauliflower into equal-sized pieces so that they cook at the same rate.
  • Use all-purpose flour or gluten-free flour for the crispy coating.
  • Drain off excess flour with a colander after covering the cauliflower with batter.
  • You can add spices such as garlic powder, smoked paprika to the dough mixture.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper or grease the tray. In this way, the cauliflower pieces do not stick to the tray.
  • Do not overfill the tray. Otherwise, the cauliflower will not cook evenly.
  • Cook this recipe in the oven, on the stove, or in the deep fryer. For a crispy texture, bake the breaded vegan wings in the oven or deep fryer.
  • Serve the cauliflower immediately. As it waits, its coating softens and loses its crispness.
  • Use vegan butter and plant-based milk to make the recipe vegan.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 °F (200 °C). Line the baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Then add milk to the mixture. Beat the mixture until you get a thick dough consistency.
  3. Cut off the stem and leaves of the cauliflower. Cut into pieces of your preferred size.
  4. Dip the cauliflower pieces into the dough mixture. Coat all parts with the mixture. Shake off the excess and place in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  5. Cook the cauliflower florets for 10 minutes until golden brown and soft, flip the cauliflower pieces over with a fork and cook for another 10 minutes.
  6. While the cauliflower is cooking, mix the buffalo sauce, butter, and honey in a medium saucepan. Cook the sauce for 2-3 minutes over medium heat.
  7. Toss the cauliflower with buffalo sauce.
  8. Return the cauliflower to the oven and cook for about 10 more minutes until crispy.
