Equipment

  • Chef knife
  • 2 baking pans
  • Large mixing bowl

Ingredients
 

Cauliflower

  • 1 head cauliflower, chopped in florets ($3.08)
  • 1 ¼ cups plant milk ($0.35)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour ($0.08)
  • 2 tsp garlic powder ($0.04)
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika ($0.05)
  • ½ tsp chili powder ($0.01)
  • ½ tbsp nutritional yeast ($0.12)
  • ¼ cup panko breadcrumbs ($0.22)
  • ½ tsp sea salt ($0.02)

Buffalo Sauce

  • 1 tbsp avocado oil ($0.19)
  • cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce ($1.01)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 425°F, and line 2 baking pans with parchment paper. Place 2 lightly greased cooling racks on top of the parchment paper so the cauliflower wings cook without burning on the bottom.
  • In a large bowl, combine plant milk, AP flour, breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, chili powder, smoked paprika, and sea salt. Stir to combine.
  • Next, chop up the head of cauliflower into bite-size florets. Coat each floret of cauliflower in the breading mixture, then spread evenly on the cooling racks (on top of parchment-lined pans).
  • Bake the cauliflower on the center rack at 425°F for 30 minutes. In the meantime, mix the avocado oil with the Franks Red Hot Sauce in a large bowl.
  • After 30 minutes, remove the cauliflower wings from your oven, toss in the Franks mixture, and place them back on the cooling racks again. Bake for another 20-25 minutes until crispy, turning halfway.
  • While the wings are baking, prepare a ranch sauce for dipping.
  • After 20-25 more minutes of baking, turn your oven to broil for 2-3 more minutes on high to crisp up the wings.
  • Serve cauliflower wings immediately with ranch dip and celery sticks!

Notes

  • Baking the wings on a cooling rack isn't 100% necessary. Just remember to flip the wings more frequently to avoid burning on the bottoms.
  • At the end, you can also toss the cauliflower in more hot sauce if you prefer saucier wings.
  • For the plant milk, we usually use soy, but any plant milk will work.
