In fact, since transitioning to a vegan diet, Mr. Two Spoons always tells me that the only thing he misses from his old diet is chicken wings! It’s something he says often in fact – that he can get on board with all the vegan versions of his old favourites, like vegan sausages, burgers, and hot dogs. But he really misses the chicken wings!
So, this recipe was made with my husband in mind to help him get his buffalo wing fix. And, well – it fixed it.
So, let me tell you exactly how to make these vegan cauliflower buffalo wings, so that you can get your fix too.

Pretty much, they’re everything you would hope for in a vegan cauliflower buffalo wings recipe – actually, they’re better!
The recipe is inspired by Broma Bakery’s Buffalo Cauliflower Wings. Made vegan of course with some modifications, and then some more to taste.
I also absolutely love the homemade vegan ranch dressing for dipping. It’s made with a base of coconut yogurt for a healthy, creamy, and tangy dip.
These vegan cauliflower buffalo wings are baked not fried, making it a pretty healthy options for wings. It begins by chopping the cauliflower into florets and dipping into a spiced flour mixture for the breading. Then baking the florets in the oven until crispy and golden.
While you’re waiting for the cauliflower wings to get crispy. You can prepare the bbq sauce and dip.
For the bbq sauce, I’ve used my favourite store-bought brand (easy peasy) mixed with a bit of melted coconut oil for a silky smooth texture. When the florets are nice and crispy, you can toss the cauliflower florets in the sauce.
As for the ranch dip, this is a simple mix of coconut yogurt, apple cider vinegar, dill and other spices. I love this dip not only because it’s creamy and flavourful, but the ingredients are so clean. Which you often can’t find with store-bought brands.
