Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower Wings

These Buffalo Cauliflower “Wings” that would be the perfect spicy snack for your Superbowl Party!!

This vegan take on buffalo wings is bursting with flavor and made with whole plant ingredients that nourish you! They’re tender in the center, coated in a light crust and finished with our healthy version of buffalo sauce.

We love these wings served with our Avocado Ranch Dressing, (recipe below) along with a generous portion of veggie crudités.

They’re baked, not fried, and are seriously addictive - You’ve been warned!


For the cauliflower bites

  • 1 cauliflower head, cut into bite-sized pieces

For the batter:

  • 1 cup plant milk, more if needed (almond or soy work well)

  • 3/4 rice cup flour

  • 1 tsp onion powder

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp paprika

  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper

For the Buffalo sauce:

  • 2 tbsp tahini

  • 3–4 tbsp hot sauce (Traditionally - Franks Red Hot Sauce is the most popular. We also like Siete Traditional Hot Sauce.)

  • 1–2 tsp maple syrup

  • 1 tsp soy sauce (use tamari or liquid aminos for gluten free)

  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice

  • 1/8 tsp smoked paprika


  1. Preheat the oven to 450ºF

  2. Wash and cut the cauliflower head into bite-sized pieces or florets.

  3. Mix the batter ingredients in a bowl until well combined.

  4. Dip each floret into the batter and coat evenly. Shake off the excess and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

  5. Bake for 20 minutes, flipping over the florets halfway through.

  6. Make the Buffalo sauce: Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl until smooth. Add a dash water to thin if necessary. Adjust seasonings - add more hot sauce if you like it spicier!

  7. Toss the baked florets in the sauce, 1 or 2 pieces at a time. Shake off the excess and place them back on the baking sheet.

  8. Bake them for another 20 minutes or until golden brown, flipping over the florets halfway through. Serve with veggie crudités and our Avocado Ranch for dipping!
