Buffalo Cauliflower Wings


We love cauliflower wings because they are so versatile and so delish. You can add your favorite spices, coatings, and sauces.

But we have to tell you – covering the cauliflower in a mixture that involves crispy onions is a complete GAME CHANGER. How have we not thought of this before?

You’ll need:


Nondairy, unsweetened milk


Crispy onions

Nutritional yeast


Garlic salt

Buffalo sauce (vegan margarine + hot sauce!)

Not only are these easy to throw together, they’re a huge crowd-pleaser and loved by vegans and non-vegans alike.

Serve with a drizzle of vegan ranch to take them to the next level!

Servings 6 servings


  • 1 medium-sized head cauliflower
  • 1 cup unsweetened nondairy milk we prefer rice milk (it has a super neutral flavor & is awesome for cooking!)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 cups crispy onions
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp garlic salt

Buffalo Sauce

  • 3/4 cup vegan margarine
  • 1 cup hot sauce


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Chop the cauliflower into bite-sized pieces.
  • In one bowl, whisk together the milk and flour.
  • In a food processor, add the crispy onions, nutritional yeast, parsley, and garlic salt and blend. Pour into a separate bowl.
  • Dip each piece of cauliflower in the flour/milk mixture, then the crispy onion mixture, then place on a lined baking sheet.
  • Bake the wings for ~35 minutes, until crispy (flip halfway). For extra crispiness, broil them for a few minutes or throw them in the air fryer!
  • Make the buffalo sauce: melt the margarine in a saucepan. Add the hot sauce and mix.
  • In a large bowl, add the cauliflower bites and buffalo sauce. Gently mix until completely covered.
  • Serve with a drizzle of vegan ranch, if desired!

    Just a question: when I took the cauliflower and mixed the hot sauce, the batter started to come off. Did I not bake the cauli long enough?

    Thanks for the recipe!
