Cauliflower Wings – Gluten Free & Vegan!

Cauliflower Wings – Gluten Free & Vegan!

Tasty finger foods are something that we always look forward to eating, especially cauliflower wings! If you’ve never made cauliflower wings before, or aren’t confident with your breading skills yet, don’t panic! We have laid out a complete step by step guide to get you familiar with your vegan breading station.

These wings are seriously addicting! You will be so obsessed with chowing down on a huge plate of these saucy wings! Perfect for the big game or your Bachelorette finale party. We can personally tell you they will be a huge hit at both. Making the wings a little smaller gives them crispier cauliflower to breading ratio, but the big ones are amazing for dipping. So load up on that vegan ranch! chicken feeding

Our personal favorite way to devour these tasty wings is with some Franks Buffalo Sauce! Make sure if using a store bought sauce, that the ingredients are completely animal free. Most companies, like Franks, have either a disclaimer or a FAQ section on their website to address any dietary concerns. Companies sometimes use some insane wording on the label, Franks for example, use “natural butter flavoring” but the company states it is not animal derived, in case anyone was unsure!

Your batter should be a little less thick than a pancake batter, we encourage adding your own favorite spices in to the mix! If you’re unsure about saucing your wings you can skip this step and save the sauce for dipping. A shorter cooking time might be required, make sure your bread crumbs do not burn.

Now you’re all set up and ready to cook!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350℉. Cut cauliflower in to 1 inch pieces, trimming off a majority of the stem.
  2. Place cauliflower on a baking sheet and cook for 15 minutes.
  3. Combine non dairy milk and half of the spices in a bowl. Stir in flour making sure to combine with no chunks. Stir in buffalo sauce, this will be your batter. We usually end up adding a couple tablespoons of water to thin this out.
  4. Add bread crumbs to separate dish and combine with remaining spices.
  5. Dip cauliflower in batter and drop in bread crumbs and coat evenly. Try to be gentle as you transfer to fryer or baking sheet.
  6. Cook in deep fryer at 330℉ for 4 - 5 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from fryer and sauce, bake for 5 minutes at 350℉ in the oven.
  7. Alternatively you can bake these at 400℉ for 20 - 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Recipe Notes

All gluten free bread crumbs cook and brown at different times. If you notice your Cauliflower wings getting too dark simply remove from fryer coat in sauce and cook in oven for 15 minutes.

 

Having a batter that is too thick will result in uncooked batter between cauliflower florets.
