Sweet & Savoury Honey Garlic Cauliflower Wings

With everyone celebrating the Superbowl last weekend, I found myself craving all those classic football appetizers that inevitably turn into a Sunday late afternoon finger food feast (pardon the alliteration; the emphasis was necessary). So in an attempt to satisfy my own festive cravings, I decided to share a delicious vegan friendly recipe, perfect for game day! These honey garlic cauliflower wings are a perfect addition to the buffet table, with the added bonus of, well… being boneless!

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil
  • 1 Cup Flour 
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Oregano
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Basil
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Rosemary 
  • 5 Flax Eggs
    • 5 Tablespoons Ground Flax
    • 12.5 Tablespoons Water
  • 1/2 Cup Honey Garlic Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Veganaise
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne 
  • 2 Tablespoons Sesame Seeds
  • 1 Green Onion

You Will Need:

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 425 °F. Wash and cut your cauliflower into 2-bite size pieces.

Step 2: Use 1 tablespoon of sesame oil to line your baking sheet. Sesame oil will add a complementary flavour, but feel free to use coconut oil if you don’t have sesame! Spread florets on the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, flipping halfway to cook evenly.

Step 3: While the florets bake, use a small mixing bowl to prepare the flour coating. Whisk together flour, salt, pepper, and 1 teaspoon oregano, basil, and rosemary.

Step 4: In a small mixing bowl, stir together ground flax and water, and let sit for 3 minutes, letting the florets cool briefly before coating.

Step 5: Coat each floret with flax egg, then flour mixture, and bake for another 15 minutes, flipping at halfway to cook evenly.

Step 6: In a large mixing bowl, toss florets in a honey garlic sauce of your choice; I used a spicy honey garlic sauce for an added kick! If honey isn’t in your diet, try a mild, medium, or buffalo wing sauce! Spread the florets back onto your baking sheet and bake once again for 15-20 minutes, flipping after 10 minutes.

Step 7: In a small bowl, mix together veganaise, 1/2 teaspoon oregano and basil, and cayenne for a tasty dipping sauce! Finely chop your green onion and use for garnish, along with toasted sesame seeds. Last but not least, enjoy!!!
