Buffalo Cauliflower “Wings” Author: Susan Edelman


  • 1 large head cauliflower
  • 1 cup water
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup hot sauce (such as Hanks Sauce, a hot sauce made from peppers, vinegar, wine, salt, garlic and basil)
  • 1 tablespoon vegan margarine


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet (or two) with parchment paper.
  2. Cut cauliflower into bite-sized florets.
  3. In a large bowl, add water, flour, garlic powder, onion powder and salt.
  4. Whisk to combine, creating a batter.
  5. Add the cauliflower to the batter in the bowl and toss to combine.
  6. Remove the pieces of cauliflower, one by one, shaking off excess batter.
  7. Place on the lined baking sheet making sure florets are not touching each other.
  8. You may need two prepared baking sheets.
  9. Bake for 15 minutes. Flip them over and bake for 7-10 minutes more until golden brown.
  10. While the cauliflower is baking, prepare the hot sauce/vegan margarine mixture. Melt the margarine in a saucepan on the stove over medium heat.
  11. Once melted, add the hot sauce and stir. Set aside.
  12. Brush the hot sauce/vegan margarine mixture on each cauliflower wing using a silicone brush or pastry brush, or toss the florets with the sauce in a large bowl, then return the coated cauliflower to the baking sheets.
  13. Place the baking sheets back into the oven for 7-10 minutes. Watch for over-browning. Remove. Serve with any vegan mayonnaise of your choice along with carrots and celery if desired.
