There’s really not any food that you have to miss if you eat vegetarian or vegan. I’m convinced that there’s a good plant-based replacement for every animal-based product. These vegan hot wings are the living proof. I made these wings from cauliflower. On this page I’m sharing my recipe for oven baked vegan cauliflower hot wings.
The trick to make these vegan wings super tasty is in the outer layer. You want that to be crispy and flavorful. A good BBQ sauce is your best friend when making these wings. Did you know that, in general, BBQ sauce is vegan? I think it’s a great invention, because you can make many ingredients taste like meat with BBQ sauce. Like vegan pulled jackfruit tacos that taste like they have pulled chicken.
These cauliflower hot wings are oven baked, so you don’t need a deep fryer to make them. So they’re more healthy in two ways: not baked in fat and a tasty way to eat more vegetables. Scroll down for the recipe of these oven baked vegan cauliflower hot wings.
Recipe oven baked vegan cauliflower hot wings
100 grams flour
1 table spoon ground cayenne pepper (or ground paprika)
150 ml almond milk
75 ml vegan BBQ sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
For the cheese dip:
5 tablespoons vegan cream cheese (I used Violife)
Fresh coriander (cilantro)
Preheat the oven to 220C. Cut the cauliflower in florets.
In a big bowl, combine the flour, cayenne pepper and almond milk. Stir until you’ve got a smooth batter.
Add the cauliflower florets and stir until they’re all covered with a layer of batter.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Use a fork to put each individual floret on the baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes. Turn each cauliflower floret around and bake for 10 more minutes.
In a small bowl, mix the BBQ sauce and the olive oil.
Spread the BBQ sauce over each cauliflower floret and bake them for 10-15 more minutes.
In a bowl, stir the cream cheese until soft. Finely chop the cilantro and stir in the cream cheese dip.
Serve the oven baked vegan cauliflower hot wings with the vegan cream cheese dip.
