Breaded and baked cauliflower wings | Vegan recipe

Now that it is VM football ( not that i am watching or keeping track), you may want some snacks while watching the football. Then i present to you… baked cauliflower “wings”!!

Do they taste the same as chicken wings, of course not. But they are actually very delicious, the trick is to get the seasoning and sauce right! And of course, the best is to use fresh cauliflower, but frozen works as well!

I have two other cauliflower wing recipes you can try:

Sesame coated cauliflower wings

Vegan cauliflower buffalo wings


I personally think the two recipes above are better than this recipe, hahahah, i don’t mean to deter you from testing this recipe! These do taste very good and are more crunchy and not as messy to prepare!


Recipe (for 1 portion/person): 

1/2 cauliflower head – cut into small florets (You can defrost frozen cauliflower as well).

c.a 100 – 200ml breadcrumbs (I didn’t measure or weigh, but pour a little into a bowl and add more if necessary). Note, you can also use panko or crushed cornflakes as coating.

c.a 100ml aquafaba (which is the liquid from a tetrapack of chickpeas)

Salt & seasoning


How to:

Begin by either chopping fresh cauliflower into small florets, or defrosting frozen cauliflower.

Heat the oven to 220 degrees celsius and line a baking pan with parchment paper.

Then in a bowl pour some bread crumbs (or alternative). Add salt and seasoning to the bread crumbs and mix.

In another bowl pour the aquafaba and add seasoning to the aquafaba as well. Note, you can even mix aquafaba with example barbeque sauce so the cauliflower has extra taste!

Then begin by first dipping the cauliflower floret into the aquafaba, then coating it in the bread crumbs. Place onto the baking pan and repeat with all the florets.

Bake in the oven c.a 30-40 minutes. After half the time, take the cauliflower out of the oven and drizzle over some oil for extra taste and crispiness. Turn the cauliflower over and place back into the oven for the remainder of the baking time.

When done, serve with some sauce! Example guacamole, barbeque sauce, pesto, roasted paprika hummus



And some other snack ideas to eat infront of TV or series is:
Baked tofu fries

Tofu and vegetable skewers with peanut butter sauce (Yes, this can infact be a snack!)

Home made nacho/tortilla chips with salsa, guacamole and vegan creme fraiche!

Vegan cinnamon french toast sticks

Double chocolate chip cookies

Peanut butter and banana bread pudding

    I really like this idea of breaded cauliflower 🙂 Thing is, I can`t eat too much cauliflower so I was thinking perhaps use broccoli instead? Or don`t you think it would work so well?


    1. Hmm, i have had others ask me this but i am not so sure. The thing ahout cauliflower is that it is more “sturdy” and doesn’t have all those small tiny floret pieces (if that makes sense.) Also it turns soft quicker… but you could definitely try this recipe using broccoli, but i can’t guarantee the results 🙂

    Its “wall to wall” football here too – theres just no getting away from it! And Wimbledon starts next week so more TV taken up with hours of sport 😦
    This certainly is a summer of sport – ok if you are into all that but I`m not a huge fan. The good thing is though how quiet the shops and parks are when a big match is on 🙂
