Soft and tender inside and crispy externally these cauliflower buffalo “wings” are so near to the real deal it’s hard to trust!

This recipe is a superb substitution for buffalo wings and may be produced gluten-free, vegan, or vegetarian. Dip in ranch or blue cheese for a lot more added flavor.

They're baked to create them just a little healthier and easier around the waist-line. I haven’t tried frying these yet, however when I do I'll update this post.

Now the main element to create these wings crispy externally is by dipping them in a flour/water batter. I’ve also added some spices towards the batter to provide the wings extra flavor!

This batter could be easily made vegan through the use of water or almond or soy milk instead.

Whisk the flour, spices, milk, and water until little to no lumps appear. 

Dip the cauliflower in to the batter, in batches.

Following the cauliflower is fully coated, stick it on the greased sheet pan. Make sure to drain just as much batter as you possibly can from the cauliflower before placing on the pan. I poured my entire batch in simultaneously and all of the extra batter stuck together while baking.

Following the cauliflower has cooked for 20 minutes, take it off and drizzle buffalo sauce onto it and go back to bake for another 20 minutes or until it’s crispy.
