Korean-Style Broccoli Wings


These wings put a spicy-Asian spin on our classic vegan (BBQ) wings – get that recipe here! They are easy to make and the sauce contains just a few simple ingredients:

Gochujang (get our favorite brand here!)– if you aren’t familiar with gochujang, it’s a spicy red chili paste that is a staple in our kitchen. 

Sesame Oil (we love this kind)

Soy Sauce (here is a low-sodium version we use)

Mirin (we love this brand)

Liquid Smoke (this brand is definitely vegan)

Beware: these wings are pretty darn spicy, but so WORTH IT.

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 medium-sized head of broccoli
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp gochujang
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 1/2 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1 green onion chopped + sesame seeds, for topping (optional)


  • Start by pre-heating the oven to 400°F and greasing a baking sheet with the olive oil.
  • Chop the broccoli into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the water, flour & garlic powder.
  • Dunk each piece of broccoli into the mixture (this can be done by either putting all the broccoli into the bowl and mixing or individually dunking each piece).
  • Place the battered broccoli on the greased baking sheet (letting excess batter drip off before placing down).
  • Cook broccoli for 35 minutes (flipping halfway)- they should be nice and crispy when done.
  • While they are cooking, make the sauce by whisking together the gochujang, sesame oil, soy sauce, mirin, and liquid smoke in a small bowl.
  • When the broccoli is done cooking, put the pieces in a large mixing bowl and toss them in the sauce (all the broccoli should be lightly coated).
  • Top with green onions and sesame seeds (if desired) and serve!
