Hot Cauliflower Wings


Sometimes, a post comes together so perfectly, I just can't put it in the usual line up process. I HAVE to post it right away. These Hot Cauliflower wings, which can easily be made buffalo, mild or bbq style, are the perfect party or snack food. Bonus: They are totally fat free. I'm definitely bragging about this one to promote my cooking classes and personal chef services here in Vancouver.

Life has been pretty hectic lately! My entrepreneurship program at the YMCA is on its last weekds and it shows! Everyone is prepping for their final presentations and the launch of their businesses. On top of that, I have my very first cooking class at the end of the month AND have partnered up with my local community center to do classes there. If that's not progress...

Sharing delicious vegan food is one of many ways to encourage more plant-based meals and discovering the amazing benefits for yourself, the environment and most importantly the animals that don't need to suffer. These wings are the epitome of that. It's a ridiculously popular dish, that can be made so easily with plants!

I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking.

Prep Time
8 Minutes

Cooking Time
20 Minutes


  • 1 large cauliflower
  • 3/4 cup gluten free flour
  • 1 Tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 cup water - or as necessary
  • 1 cup Louisiana Hot Sauce


  • Pre-heat the oven to 425F.
  • Cut the cauliflower head into even sized pieces.
  • In a large bowl, toss together the flour and seasonings. Add half the water and then a bit at a time while whisking until you get a thick consistency that will stick to the wings.
  • A few at a time, dunk the cauliflower pieces into the batter, covering the entire surface. Now you can either shake as much of the excess off as you can or place them on a rack.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the battered cauliflower wings without having any of them touching.
  • Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, until you seen them browning.
  • Put the wings in a big bowl with the hot sauce and toss to coat. Serve with a ranch or sour cream dipping sauce.
  • Enjoy!
