Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Wings

I have always loved chicken wings! Like beyond love, we are soul mates. I go to Buffalo Wild Wings any chance I get and just pig out. But I am a huge animal lover and am looking to become fully vegan therefore I have had to test out substitutes for my beloved wings.

I recently found and tried out this recipe for Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Wings from PETA and they were…AMAZING!!! So I thought I better share the recipe with all of you, otherwise I am being completely selfish.

What you need:

1 cup water or soy milk
1 cup flour (any kind will work—even gluten-free!)
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 head of cauliflower, chopped into pieces
1 cup buffalo or hot sauce
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil or melted vegan butter

What to do:

  • Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  • Combine the water or soy milk, flour, and garlic powder in a bowl and stir until well combined.
  • Coat the cauliflower pieces with the flour mixture and place in a shallow baking dish. Bake for 18 minutes.
  • While the cauliflower is baking, combine your buffalo sauce and olive oil or margarine in a small bowl.
  • Pour the hot sauce mixture over the baked cauliflower and continue baking for an additional 5 to 8 minutes.

They also say to then serve it with vegan blue cheese so I thought I better share that as well!! (P.S. it was just as amazing as normal blue cheese)

vegan blue cheese

What you need:
1/4 block of firm or extra firm tofu

dash of garlic powder 

1 cup or more (depends on how much you want to make) of veganaise. (vegan mayo)

1/4 tsp tahini (sesame seed paste) Can be made without this, but it’s better with!

dash lemon juice

dash apple cider vinegar

What to do:

  • In medium size bowl, mix all ingredients except the tofu.
  • You have to be the judge of this recipe and taste as you go…this is the best advice I can give you. The vinegar and lemon juice give it tang, so use them sparingly. I start out with little splashes (like a teaspoon at a time of each!) and just taste until I achieve the taste I want.
  • Mix until it’s a nice, smooth consistency.
  • Crumble tofu. (this will be the “lumps” in your blue cheese dressing!)
  • Add to your dressing mixture.

Let me know if you tried this and liked it or if you have any more vegan recipies for me to try out!!
