Vegan Nashville Hot Cauliflower Wings


1 large head Cauliflower (chopped into florets)

1/3 cup Almond milk, unsweetened (soy or cows (if not vegan) works too)

1 tsp Hot sauce

1/2 tsp Garlic powder

1/2 tsp Onion powder

1/2 tsp Salt

1/4 cup All-purpose white flour (or use rice flour for gluten-free)

3 tbsp Cornstarch (arrowroot and potato starch works too)

1/2 tsp Baking powder

1 tsp Canola oil (or oil of choice)

1 1/5 second spray Cooking Spray, canola oil

1 tbsp Butter, vegan (melted; or oil of choice)

1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper (use 1/4 tsp for less heat)

1 tsp Black pepper (use 1/2 tsp for less heat))

1 tsp Granulated sugar (or maple syrup)

1 tsp Paprika (use more if omitting cayenne)

2 tbsp Hot sauce

1/2 tsp Garlic powder

1/2 tsp Poultry seasoning, Trader's Choice (or use sage + onion powder)

1 tbsp Vinegar, white

1 tbsp Water


Step 1: Chop the cauliflower into bite-sized florets and set aside. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 C). Step 2: To make the batter, whisk together the almond milk, hot sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, flour, starch, baking powder, and oil. The batter will start to thicken after half a minute, so work quickly. Step 3: Add cauliflower florets to the batter and toss well to coat. It will take a minute for the thick batter to coat the florets well. Some uncoated cauliflower edges are ok. Place the coated florets onto the parchment-lined baking sheet. Spray oil on top. (You can also sprinkle 2-3 tbsp breadcrumbs on the florets in the dish for extra crispiness). Step 4: Bake for 25 mins (if planning to serve the homemade hot sauce on the side, omit Steps 6 & 7 and bake for 35 minutes) Step 5: In the meantime, make the Nashville hot sauce mixture. In a large bowl, add the melted vegan butter (or oil), cayenne, black pepper, sugar (or maple syrup), paprika, hot sauce, garlic powder, poultry seasoning, vinegar, and water. You can double this sauce easily for larger cauliflower. Step 6: Remove the baking sheet from the oven and cool for 5 mins. Add the baked cauliflower to the sauce bowl and gently toss to coat. Step 7: Drop back onto the baking sheet and bake for 15 mins at 400 degrees F. Step 8: Serve with cooling dips such as vegan ranch or sour cream and some pickles.
