Buffalo Cauliflower Wings made with Sriracha Sauce… Yummy and HOT!!!!
Wondering what to bring to the party? These buffalo cauliflower wings, made with a sriracha sauce, would make a great addition to any party. Vegans and non vegans will love them! You can bring these to your Super Bowl party!!!
What I like about these Wings:
- They’re baked, not fried and have no additional oil or butter added.
- They taste amazing… warning they’re spicy but delicious. Mix it with celery and your favorite sauce to help cool it down. I like the vegan ranch dressing from Heart to Heart.
- Cauliflower creates a nice texture if you are looking to replace traditional buffalo wings.
- Make them in a short amount of time. The sauce includes only 2 ingredients.
What are the Ingredients:
- Oat Flour (You can substitute oat flour for almond or all purpose flour)
- Sriracha (You can substitute for Hot Sauce)
- Garlic Powder
- Maple Syrup
How do you make Buffalo Cauliflower Wings?
First gather your ingredients and chop the cauliflower into bite size pieces. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. The total baking time for the wings are about 35-40 minutes. Total prep time is about 10-15 minutes.
Next you want to prepare the batter. For this recipe I used oat flour. I put 2 cups of old fashioned oats in the food processor and made the oat flour. You can use a store bought oat flour if you like. You can substitute with almond or all purpose flour.
For this batter, you want to mix the dry ingredients together, the oat flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Next, you want to add in the water.
The next step is to whisk the ingredients together. The consistency should be similar to pancake batter.
Next, you want to add each of the cauliflower pieces to the batter. It is important to shake off the extra batter from the cauliflower otherwise the cauliflower can get mushy while it bakes. Add the cauliflower to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Using the parchment paper eliminates the need for using oil and not having to worry about the cauliflower wings sticking to the pan. Bake the cauliflower in the oven for 20-25 minutes until it begins to brown
Now it is time to make the sauce. This sauce only takes about 1 minute to make. Mix together the sriracha and maple syrup together. The Sriracha sauce can be substituted for hot sauce. I like to add a little maple syrup to the sriracha to create a sweet spicy flavor.
The next step is to mix the cauliflower wings and the sauce together in a bowl. You can do it one at a time or you can mix a couple of wings at a time with the sauce. Add the cauliflower to the baking sheet and bake for additional 10 minutes.
All I can say is yum!!! You can serve the Buffalo Cauliflower wings with a side celery and your favorite vegan dip. I like the vegan ranch dressing from Heart to Heart. Tastes spicy and delicious!
