My buffalo cauliflower wings are such a tasty dish that is really satisfying despite basically being a jazzed up vegetable! It is inspired by buffalo chicken wings which were a favourite starter of mine when I used to eat meat. The cauliflower and buffalo sauce work really well together and it honestly has created a really good plant based substitute.
I have made a few revisions to this recipe and the most recent change I have made is to mix the sauce in the bowl that you tossed the florets in breadcrumbs and flour in, this is because the leftover ingredients result in a really thick sauce that helps to completely coat the wings. If you misread the recipe and accidentally throw the contents of the bowl before making the sauce do not despair, just add an extra tablespoon of plain flour to the sauce to help it thicken.
Do not worry about coating each side of the wing, I generally just baste the front and leave the back resting against the parchment paper and this creates enough flavour. Feel free to use whichever sauce you prefer in this recipe, I have made a few different versions of this all varying in the level of spiciness so match the one you choose to your preference.
If you like my cauliflower wings you may also like my Buffalo Fried Chicken recipe, my Jalapeno Poppers which you can find here or my Sweet Potato Nachos which you can find here. Why not use the entire cauliflower and make my Barbecue Cauliflower Ribs instead of discarding the leaves?

My husband and I love these! Excited to try them in tacos. Have you tried these in an air fryer?
Oh I’m glad to hear it! I haven’t but they’re on my meal plan this week so I’ll give them a go and report back!
