Spicy buffalo cauliflower wings

These were unbelievable wings, similar texture and almost the exact flavor as the SPICY buffalo wings. It had a palate-stimulating crisp outer layer and a moist inner core, puts everything in place, and the vegan range sauce was creamy.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium cauliflower, cleaned and chopped
  • ½ cup plant-based milk ( Almond, Hemp, Quinoa)
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne, optional
  • 1 tsp of smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp pink salt
  • ¼ tsp fresh ground pepper
  • toasted sesame seeds, optional
  • 1 cup frank’s red hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter, earth balance 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425-450 F depending on your oven.
  2. Line baking tray with parchment paper, set aside
  3. Wash and cut cauliflower into bite-sized.
  4. In a medium bowl mix the flour, spices, water and milk combine until the batter has a thick consistency and is able to coat the cauliflower without dripping.
  5. Dip the cauliflower into the batter. either in batches or individually. Shake off excess batter before placing cauliflower on the baking sheet. Lay the cauliflower on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden tint, flipping the pieces over halfway through to get all sides golden brown and to crisp up.
  7. While the cauliflower is baking, prepare your buffalo sauce. In a small saucepan on low heat melt vegan butter and mix in hot sauce and vinegar. Remove from the heat just as it starts to melt. Stir together and set aside.
  8. Once the cauliflower is firm and has a golden tint, remove them from the oven and transfer them into a mixing bowl with the sauce. Gently toss until evenly coated. Return cauliflower to baking sheet and bake in the oven for another 10 – 15 minutes.
  9. Garnish with sesame toasted seeds and serve with vegan ranch sauce

Pantry’s Tip: Add 1 tbsp brown sugar into your hot sauce to reduce the spiciness and to thicken the sauce to easily coat the cauliflower
