These buffalo cauliflower wings are a great appetizer for a Sunday game! This recipe is vegan, easy to make, and everyone will love it!


  • 1 cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs 
  • 1/3 cup buffalo sauce
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 C). Line a baking tray with parchment paper, and cut the cauliflower into florets.
  2. Into a large mixing bowl, add the flour, garlic powder, salt, and mix everything.
  3. Add the milk and stir until combined. The mixture should be thick. Add the cauliflower florets and coat them evenly. 
  4. Into a separate bowl, add the panko bread crumbs. Transfer the cauliflower florets to that bowl and coat them with the bread crumbs.
  5. Place the coated florets into the baking tray without touching each other and bake for about 20 minutes, flipping over halfway through.
  6. While the florets are baking, mix the buffalo sauce with melted butter and set it aside. 
  7. Remove the florets from the oven, brush each one with the buffalo sauce mixture and return to the oven to cook for additional 20 minutes. Serve them with garlic dip!


Drain the cauliflower well before using: If you start making this recipe with wet cauliflower, your wings may become soggy. So, make sure you drain them well before making this recipe!

Cut the florets into larger pieces: If you cut the florets into tiny pieces, they won’t be as crispy and won’t cook as well as larger florets.

Don’t wait too long to eat: Don’t wait too long to eat them as soon as they come out of the oven! They become softer as soon as they start to cool down, especially the next day.
