Sriracha & Lime Cauliflower Wings!

Vegan & Gluten Free!!!

oh and they are

Baked!

When you want a wings and beer night but you’re a vegetarian/vegan and you have to make gluten free too?!  So here is a healthier version of the traditional wings.  We baked, well double baked, these babies and they come out soooooo yummy!

We tried a really amazing sauce on them made with Sriracha aka the new Ketchup, and lime.  This recipe would be easy enough to change up your spices.  I think the next time we should try a honey garlic glazed for those who may find these a little spicy!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk or plain soy milk
  • 6-8 Tbsp
  • 1 head of cauliflower but into ‘wing’ size pieces. This is really up to you how big you like them.
SAUCE
  • 1/4 cup Sriracha sauce
  • 2 tsp melted coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoon agave (or honey if not vegan)
  • juice of half a lime…also add more for your own taste
  • 2 tablespoon water if needed to thin out sauce

Method:

  1. Heat the oven to 450F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Wash and cut cauliflower into bite size wing pieces.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, spices, almond milk and water.  Whisk it up to mix well.  The batter should be like a pancake type batter.  Not chunky but not too runny that it won’t stick.
  4. One by one, immerse the wings into the batter and cover completely.  Do a little shake…and shake the cauliflower wing to remove excess.  Put onto the parchment lined baking sheet.  Spread them out so they won’t run together.
  5. Once you have dipped all the wings, place into oven for 20-25 minutes.
  6. While the wings are baking for the first go around, get the sauce ready.
  7. In another bowl, mix in Sriracha, lime juice, agave or honey and melted coconut oil.  Mix up and if too thick, use some water to thin it out.
  8. Once the wings are baked, take them out and one by one dip them into the sauce.  You can use a basting brush too but I think they get coated a little better when you dip.
  9. Back to the oven they go!  Put the wings back in once the sauce is covered them and bake for another 20 minutes.
  10. While they are baking, we mixed up some dipping sauce. Here is the recipe for that!
  • One bunch of cilantro
  • juice of one lime
  • 2 tsp of agave (or honey)
  • 1 avocado
  • 3 garlic cloves

We put all these ingredients into a food processor and blended until smooth.  You may need a little water if not getting smooth enough.

The wings are best right out of the oven.  If you have left overs though, heat them up on a pan in the oven at 350F for 10-15 minutes.  They will satisfy anyone’s cravings for wings!

And the green dipping sauce is deeeeelish.
