Cauliflower Hot Wings with Vegan Aioli Recipe (Vegan & Gluten Free)

These vegan cauliflower hot wings are the perfect comfort food. They’re so tangy, spicy, and incredibly delicious! It’s almost a bit creepy how close they are to the real thing!

Servings : 4 People

1 head of cauliflower
3/4 cup all-purpose flour (or chickpea flour for a gluten-free version)
3/4 cup unsweetened almond or soy milk
1/4 cup water
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika powder
black pepper
3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs (omit for a gluten-free version)
1 cup spicy BBQ sauce
1 teaspoon sriracha sauce (optional)
2 green onions, cut into rings

  1. Heat the oven to 350 °F.
  2. Carefully cut the cauliflower into bite-sized florets.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, the plant-based milk, the water, the garlic power, the paprika powder, the salt, and the black pepper.  Stir until well combined. For a gluten-free version substitute the all-purpose flour with chickpea flour (also omit the water if using chickpea flour). 
  4. Dip the florets into the batter, so they’re completely coated.
