How to Make Crispy Buffalo Cauliflower Wings

Prepare the cauliflower

Start by preheating your oven to 450°F (230°C). Next, cut a large head of cauliflower into bite-sized florets, discarding the stem.

Make the dough

In a large bowl, mix whole wheat flour, spices and non-dairy milk until smooth. This flavorful paste will give your cauliflower wings a delicious and pleasant coating.

Prepare the breadcrumbs

In another bowl, place the panko breadcrumbs. These breadcrumbs will give the perfect crunchy texture to your cauliflower wings.

Coat the cauliflower

Dip each cauliflower floret into the batter, making sure it is completely coated. Next, dredge the coated cauliflower in the breadcrumbs, pressing gently so that it adheres. This double coating technique creates a crispy outer layer that perfectly complements the tender cauliflower inside.

Cook the cauliflower

Place the coated cauliflower on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or on a wire rack. This allows air to circulate evenly around each piece, ensuring a crispy exterior. Bake for 20-30 minutes at 450f until the edges are golden and crisp.

Recipe Tips for Buffalo Cauliflower Wings

Choose fresh cauliflower: Opt for a large head of cauliflower with firm florets for best results. Fresh cauliflower ensures a tender texture and robust flavor.

Adjust the Buffalo sauce to taste: Adjust the amount of Buffalo sauce according to your heat preference. If you like it very spicy, feel free to add more sauce during the last cooking stage.

Make it gluten free: Simply replace the whole wheat flour with your favorite gluten-free flour and use gluten-free breadcrumbs.

Use a grid: Placing the cauliflower wings on a rack while cooking allows air to circulate evenly around each piece, resulting in an evenly crispy exterior.

Presentation tip: These wings are delicious on their own, but they’re even better when paired with fresh, crunchy veggies and a creamy dip. Serve with carrot and celery sticks alongside a generous drizzle of homemade tahini ranch for the ultimate taste experience. You can also use them to make delicious cauliflower tacos.

Replace the sauce. Instead of hot sauce, you can add your favorite wing sauce. Try adding barbecue sauce, honey mustard, or any sauce of your choice!
