Cauli “hot wings”


1 head of cauliflower

¾ cup chickpea flower (or all purpose flour)

¾ cup of soy or almond milk (unsweetened)

¼ cup of water (if using chickpea flour you won’t need this)

3 tspns garlic powder

2 tspn paprika

¾ cup breadcrumbs (panko works best)

1 cup spicy BBQ sauce (vegan version)

Spring onions cut diagonally to garnish





  1. Preheat oven to 200c and cut cauli into bite size pieces.
  2. In a large bowl mix flour, water (leave this out if using chickpea flour), garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper and stir well until combined.
  3. Coat the cauli in the batter.
  4. Coat the battered cauli in panko breadcrumbs.
  5. Line a baking tray with baking paper and place cauli pieces on baking paper, making sure they aren’t on top of each other. Bake for 25-30 mins or until golden/crisp looking.
  6. Once baked place cauli in a bowl, add a few spoonfuls of BBQ sauce and stir a couple of times to coat all the pieces in the BBQ sauce.
  7. Put back in the oven and bake for another 15 -20 mins.
  8. Serve with chopped spring onions sprinkled on top and a side of vegan aioli.
