Sticky Sesame Vegan Cauliflower Wings? YES please! Confession time: there would’ve been way more wings in the pictures, but I kind of devoured them seconds after they came out of the oven. Happily so, burning the roof of my mouth and smiling in deep satisfaction. You see, this isn’t the first time I’ve made vegan cauliflower wings, so I knew to expect delicious, flavourful bites of pure sticky goodness. I was SO right. Shall we?

With Super Bowl Sunday around the corner, no doubt you’re preparing snacks even if you’re not that into the actual game. Personally, I just go along with the team my husband chooses. It’s pretty ironic since I played basically every sport under the sun from karate to football (soccer) to my all-time favourite synchronised swimming. I can watch and get ANY sport within 10 minutes, but for some reason when it comes to American Football I get so wrapped in all the delicious food that it’s been explained to me about four times but all I hear is “crunch crunch”. Oops.

I doubt this year will be any different, especially if I’m nibbling on these babies. Vegan cauliflower wings are what have been “missing” from the vegetarian world for years, but are definitely here to stay. They taste JUST like regular wings. Without sauce, they are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, and with sauce they are EVEN better.
I decided to go with a sweet and spicy sesame sauce for these wings, and they are sticky, soft on the outside, and unbelievably divine. The spice has just the right amount of kick, and the sweet sesame flavour takes it completely over the top. They are great for a meal or as a snack, and the best part? You can show down basically a million of these without any guilt. It’s also completely gluten-free, so you can serve these to all your guests despite their dietary specifications. PRETTY sure that qualifies as a touchdown!

These wings are also incredibly easy to make. Batter them up, back them, dip ’em in sauce, and bake in the oven for just 5 more minutes. Your entire house will smell like amazing and if you’re anything like me, you’ll be sitting in front of the oven counting down. Promise me you’ll make these? You do not want to miss out on how amazing these are.
What to Serve Cauliflower Wings With
You can serve these wings with pretty much, ANYTHING. Fries, noodles, rice, by themselves, even in a sandwich! I’ve even loaded them onto a salad.

Q: What can I substitute for the liquid aminos?

A: I usually don’t recommend substitutions, but you can substitute liquid aminos for tamari equally. If you want to substitute soy sauce, I recommend a reduced-sodium soy sauce. If you’re using regular soy sauce, you’ll need to taste test the sauce first before putting on the wings and possibly add more maple syrup to balance it out.

Q: Do I have to make these vegan cauliflower wings with the breadcrumbs?

A: Yes! The breadcrumbs make the cauliflower wings crispy before the sauce goes on, and also means that you can make them sauceless. Ideally, you should make them with panko breadcrumbs which I’ve linked to below. I’ve made these without the breadcrumbs and it doesn’t work without the breading. IF you’re NOT gluten-free, you can use regular panko breadcrumbs. These are the gluten-free breadcrumbs I use – otherwise, I just make them myself (day-old bread in a food processor/blender, then toast it).

Q: If I’m not gluten-free, can I use regular flour and panko breadcrumbs?

A: Yes!

Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Total Time:
Serves: About 30 pieces
Cuisine: American
Category: Dinner
Calories: 33 per wing
  • 1 small head cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup all purpose gluten free flour*
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (1/2 if you want it very spicy, leave out if you don't like spice)
  • 1 cup crispy/panko gluten free breadcrumbs, seasoned with salt & pepper
  • 5 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons liquid aminos or low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch + 1 teaspoon water (mix together separately from the rest of ingredients in a small bowl for a cornstarch slurry)
  • ¼ cup water
  • chopped scallions & sesame seeds, for garnish
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F/230 degrees C. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with a silicone baking sheet or greased foil.
  • Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with a silicone baking sheet or greased foil. Using a knife, remove florets from the cauliflower (aka cut off the leaves and don't use the stems). Chop the cauliflower into smaller pieces to resemble the size of the wings.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the gluten-free flour, almond milk, salt, ground black pepper and garlic powder in a bowl to make the batter. If the batter is too thick, feel free to thin it out with some more milk. In a separate bowl, place the breadcrumbs. Line it up beside the batter bowl.
  • Toss the cauliflower in the batter mixture (you can add them all at once), using a spatula or spoon to coat them all. Transfer them to the breadcrumbs (you can do this in two or three batches) to coat completely, then place onto the baking sheet, giving each wing enough space. Repeat until all of the wings are coated.
  • Bake for 22 minutes. Please ensure your oven is completely preheated and hot. While baking, prepare the ingredients for the sauce by whisking together.
  • Remove from oven. Toss the wings in the sauce (I like to use a spatula to move them around to get properly coated) then using tongs or a spoon, remove and place back on the baking sheet. Bake for another 5 minutes for the sauce to soak into the wings.
  • Remove from oven and serve immediately. Enjoy!
Maple Ginger Sauce
  • After you put the cauliflower in, you can start making the sauce. In a pan over medium-high heat, mix all the sauce ingredients. Whisk together to help dissolve the cornstarch slurry. Bring to a boil, then a simmer for about 5 minutes until the sauce begins to thicken up. Whisk frequently so the cornstarch doesn't thicken up in spots but instead mixes evenly throughout the sauce. Taste test and add more sugar/soy if you want it sweeter or saltier. Remove from heat and allow to cool until needed. It'll also thicken up as it cools!


– Either way tastes great, sauce or sauceless, it’s your choice!
– Don’t use olive oil to grease the baking sheet since it will burn the bottom of your wings.
– The batter will only adhere to the cauliflower wings dry. So, if for any reason you wet your cauliflower, it has to be 100% dry for the batter to stick.

Without sauce, the wings are 24 calories each.

Yes, You can use regular or whole wheat flour if not gluten-free and regular breadcrumbs if you’re not GF. Some Gluten-Free flours are thicker than others, so if your batter seems way too thick, add in a few tablespoons of milk to thin it out a little if necessary. I use Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose GF (NOT Baking) Flour.

If you want to substitute soy sauce, PLEASE taste the sauce before it goes on the wings first. Some soy sauces can make this too salty. I recommend a reduced-sodium soy sauce.

You can store these Cauliflower Wings in an airtight Tupperware container in your fridge for up to 4 days, and reheat them in an oven until warmed. They taste best fresh. I wouldn’t recommend freezing these as the batter may get soggy.

  1. Thanks for sharing my link for Sick Chipotle Cauliflower Wings. Your Sticky Sesame Cauliflower Wings sound amazing! I’ll take a little of each please!

  2. Great minds think alike – I have a very similar recipes coming soon. I just love them dipped in loads of hot sauce!

  3. Oh wow! This looks AMAZING, great way to use cauliflower.

  4. Annie says:

    Oh yes!!! My husband loooooves wings, but I don’t care for meat quite as much as he does so this is PERFECT! I cannot wait to make these!

  5. Girl these look absolutely sensational!!!! I want them now!

  6. wow these look absolutely mouthwatering! I wouldn’t miss the meat here at all, Jessica.

  7. I know just by looking at those that they’re awesome. Nice!

  8. Even before I was a vegetarian I didn’t eat wings. But just last night I was thinking what would be a good substitute. Cauliflower is genius & the seasonings sound perfect!

  9. Mo says:

    Hi Jessica-

    I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the left margin of the text collides into the colorful social media cubes and covers the text, which then leaves us only the top and bottom two inches to read the text unobstructed. Could you pleeeeeease modify the formatting (increase left margin by 1/2″?) to correct the current overlap? Thank you!! 🙂

    And great won’t-miss-the-meat recipe! Cauliflower is the perfect sub, whenever a meaty texture is desired. These apps look absolutely addictive!

    • Jessica says:

      Oh my gosh,

      Thank you Mo!! The screen I’m working on is REALLY huge so there’s no overlap for me which is why I dind’t realise it was happening. Going to edit it now. Thanks so much!

    • Andrew Snelling says:

      Made these tonight with the sauce. I didn’t change a thing in the recipe and they were terrific! Thanks for the recipe, I’ll definitely make these again.

  10. These look amazing Jessica! I’m not really into football, but I love “football” food. 🙂 I never thought to use cauliflower in this way but I need to try this!

  11. Gah yes, I need these in my life! I love cauliflower (maybe a little too much?? haha) That sauce!!

  12. Liz says:

    Wow, these look INCREDIBLE!! Totally adding to my Super Bowl round up!

  13. Delicious! I have to try these right away. I love the flavors in that sauce!

  14. These look SO GOOD !!!

  15. Sherly says:

    I love to live with mexican foods, once invisited mumbai @india.. once in a werk i try to prepare it for my family abd they just love it , especially my kids.i have a doubt, can we use olive oil instead of coconut oil used here??

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Sherly,

      I wouldn’t use olive oil since it can burn easily. I would use vegetable oil then.

  16. Michelle says:

    I would love this recipe but I am unable to find the recipe to open it.

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Michelle,

      So sorry about that! I was having some technical issues, but the recipe is back up!

  17. Lauren says:

    Hi! I was wondering if you could tell me what serving size you based the nutritional info on? I’m making these for myself and recently switched to a vegan diet, I’m trying to make sure I’m getting enough protein. Thank you!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Lauren,

      The serving size was for about 5 bites, which will not fill you since it’s cauliflower, but simply for the purposes of calculating a serving size to help guide readers. Hope that helps!

  18. Elle says:

    How important are the ginger and the red pepper flakes?

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Elle,

      You can leave out the ginger and the red pepper flakes if you want to. The ginger does give the sauce a great flavour and the red pepper flakes give the cauliflower a kick, but if you don’t like/don’t have/are allergic to these ingredients you can leave them out. I would recommend adding another spice element (maybe hot sauce?) since the spiciness of these wings really contributes to the flavour. I do need to say that I can’t speak exactly to the taste of the sauce without the kick of the ginger or the wings without the kick of the spice so I can’t guarantee exactly how they would taste, but I doubt it would make a huge difference. I hope you enjoy!

  19. Kayla says:

    These are great! They are great texture and look like the pictures 🙂 I substituted soy sauce for the liquid aminos but will stay true to the recipe next time because the soy sauce made the wings too salty. I’ll follow the recipe next time 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Kayla,

      Thanks so much for your feedback! I’m so glad that you enjoyed them! Yes soy sauce is way more saltier than liquid aminos. I’ll add a note in the instructions to not swap. You’re very welcome!

      • Linda says:

        What could I use instead of liquid aminos?

        • Jessica says:

          Hi Linda,

          You could use tamari or soy sauce, but taste it before it goes on the wings because they are saltier than liquid aminos. You may need to add some more maple syrup to balance out the saltiness. Hope that helps!

  20. Karis says:

    Omg.. I just made these. They’re AMAZING

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Karis,

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it!! Thanks so much for sharing your feedback!

  21. Liz says:

    The cauliflowers were great until I put on the sauce which was way too salty. I tossed some in Frank’s hot sauce instead for buffalo cauliflower bites. They were a big hit!

  22. Nysha says:

    Omggggggg!!! First time making cauliflower wings I’ll admit I was skeptical but Whewwww I think this will be a staple in my house.

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Nysha,

      I’m SO happy to hear!! I’m thinking of making another cauliflower wings recipe later this year! 🙂 Thanks so much for your feedback!

  23. Ashley Harris says:

    We had these tonight for dinner and they were a hit! Having cauliflower tacos later this week and will try to remember to take a picture. We have loved everything we have tried so far. Coconut curry chickpea recipe is in our regular meal rotation too!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Ashley,

      SO glad you enjoyed!! So glad you’ve enjoyed everything so far too 😀 thanks so much for your feedback!!

  24. Sarah says:

    I just made these for my sweetheart to eat while I’m at work tonight, and I just had to taste test one. They’re DELICIOUS, I’m considering taking them all for myself and pretending they never happened, haha. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Sarah,

      Yay! So glad you enjoyed and I hope your sweetheart does too (IF you share them haha!). Thanks so much for letting me know and you’re so welcome!

  25. Melissa says:

    I’m a bit confused regarding the breadcrumbs? You mentioned in the questions that it’s necessary to use Panko crumbs but the ingredient list mentions gluten free breadcrumbs. Which is it please?

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Melissa,

      Okay, so the gluten free breadcrumbs that I linked to are panko breadcrumbs, so I was using them interchangeably. So yes, it’s gluten free panko breadcrumbs. If you aren’t gluten free though, you can definitely just use regular panko breadcrumbs. IF of course you can’t find panko breadcrumbs, regular breadcrumbs are fine but just won’t be as crispy.

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Melissa,

      I’ve also re-worded the question as follows:

      Q: Do I have to make these vegan cauliflower wings with the breadcrumbs?

      A: Yes! The breadcrumbs makes the cauliflower wings crispy before the sauce goes on, and also means that you can make them sauceless. Ideally, you should make them with panko breadcrumbs which I’ve linked to below. I’ve made these without the breadcrumbs and it doesn’t work without the breading. IF you can’t find panko gluten free breadcrumbs, regular gluten free breadcrumbs will work, just toast them first.

      Q: If I’m not gluten free, can I use regular flour and panko breadcrumbs?

      A: Yes!

      Hope that helps!

  26. Just made these tonight!

    Personal touch – I added a bit of soy sauce, onion powder and sesame oil to my wet batter. I also used panko (all I had) – made a super light but crunchy coat.

    These are banging and will be in my weekly dinner rotation – cannot wait to try with different sauces.

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Amanda,

      I’m SO glad to hear you enjoyed them!! Thanks so much for your feedback. 🙂

  27. Ali says:

    Jessica – I have NEVER commented on anyone’s recipe before and I’ve made some delectable dishes. This recipe had my husband smacking his lips looking for more!
    This is a keeper and we BOTH thank you a gazillion times for sharing it!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Ali, Happy New Year! I can’t believe I missed your comment. You’re SO welcome!!! I’m SO glad you both enjoyed this so much :D. Thanks so much for your feedback!

  28. Sandra says:

    Mouth – watering recipe… i will surely try this near future… Thanks for sharing…

  29. Kelli Snow says:

    I just made these and they were AMAZING. I made extra sauce so that I could dip each “wing” rather than use a pastry brush. These will definitely be making an appearance at my next party. Thank you!!!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Kelli,

      I’m so glad to hear that!! Oh I love that idea – I have to try it too! Thanks so much for your feedback and you’re very welcome!!

  30. Amanda says:

    These sound amazing. I can’t wait to try them.

  31. Sonja says:

    These were a hit with my boyfriend and I! I did use soy sauce, but only one tablespoon, and it seemed to do just fine. By chance, I also used garlic powder instead of ginger powder in the sauce, but they were still delicious! Thank you very much for the recipe.

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Sonja,

      I”m so happy to hear! Glad your soy sauce sub and garlic powder sub worked too! You’re so very welcome and thanks so much for your feedback!!

  32. Kat says:

    Made this recipe last night. Delicious!
    Thanks ?

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Kat,

      I’m so glad to hear that! You’re so welcome and thanks for your feedback!!

  33. Hi, Jessica! I just made these wings tonight with a few little tweaks. SOOOOOO GOOD!! Thank you for this recipe. I will be sharing my tweaked version – and crediting you of course – in my own blog. Great recipe.

    • Jessica says:

      Hey Audrey, I’m SO glad to hear you enjoyed these! Thanks for your feedback!

  34. Gail says:

    I just made these for dinner tonight. They were so delicious! I couldn’t quit eating them. My husband loved them too. I will most definitely be making these again. Thanks for the great recipe!

    • Jessica says:

      HI Gail,

      So glad to hear you both enjoyed them!! Thank you so much for your feedback and you’re so welcome!

  35. Liz says:

    Hi Jessica – Could I substitute skim milk for the unsweetened almond milk?

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Liz,

      Yes! I know I responded to you already but in case someone else wants to know. 🙂

  36. Cassie says:

    Just made these for lunch, I loved the flavour! Thank you for the wonderful recipe.

  37. Dani says:

    What is the soy sauce for? I read in notes about using it but don’t see it in the ingredient list or the instructions?

  38. Tanya says:

    Your sticky cauliflower wings were excellent and a huge hit with my family. The only problem I had was with the panko breadcrumbs about halfway through using as they got a little soggy and wouldn’t stick- so had to throw away and start again. I followed your advice with dipping individual pieces at a time…

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Tanya,

      So glad you and your family enjoyed them so much! That’s so weird, that sogginess has never happened to me before! Thanks for your feedback!

  39. Shannon says:

    Just tried these out! First time & they turned out perfectly, a testament to a really great recipe with really helpful side notes too. Delicious! Now the only problem is waiting for my partner to get home before I eat them all! Thank you so much! 😀 x

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Shannon,

      Oh haha I am SO happy to hear that! Yes waiting to share is always the hardest part haha :). Thanks so much for your feedback!!

  40. Shari says:

    Tried my hand at this recipe and they were DELICIOUS! I just need to work on making mine more “sticky” lol. Thanks for the healthy finger food recipe girl!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Shari,

      Thanks so much for your comment darling!! You’re so welcome <3 <3!

  41. Vanessa says:

    I just made these for the week and it was AMAZING! I just went vegan recently and I heard that cauliflower could taste like chicken. Boy oh boy, does your recipe taste like chicken! Thank you so much for it and I will definitely continue to use it!

    • Jessica says:

      Hey Vanessa,

      YAY! So happy to hear this! I love this recipe too! You’re so welcome and thanks for your feedback! 🙂

  42. Jeanette says:

    Tried this recipe tonight and it was delicious!! I think this is the healthiest way I’ve found to make cauliflower wings. I love how crispy they came out. I made half the batch adding the sauce and cooking the extra 5 minutes, and half batch I left out of the oven and dipped. I really loved both! I loved the extra crispiness of the dipping batch, and I loved how the sauced batch soaked up the sauce just a little bit more. My husband wasn’t crazy about the sauce but I think he’s not into ginger as much as I am in general. He said he loved the non-sauced wings and next time he will try dipping them in bbq sauce. I loved the sauce and everything about this recipe. Looking forward to checking out more from your site. Thanks so much!

  43. Lizzie says:

    These look amazing!!! Can’t wait to try!

  44. Beth says:


    I just made these and my husband and I agreed that the flavor was complex and delicious. I basted the sauce on after the 22 minutes and put back in the oven for 5 minutes. They did not have the carmelization that yours appear to; rather, it appears as though the sauce simply soaked in. Any recommendations on how to resolve this? I used gf all purpose (not baking flour) and believe I should have thinned out the batter a bit, but apart from that, I followed the recipe. I will make these again but just want to improve the texture a bit.

    Thank you for this post! Now I am going to make your chocolate avocado no churn ice cream. Yum!

  45. Tameeka Galloway says:

    Where would you buy liquid aminos?

  46. Mariah Bowen says:

    These look awesome and I wanna try them out! Do you think you can substitute any non-dairy milk in for almond milk, or should it be almond milk?

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Mariah,

      Yes you can sub that! I hope that helps!

    • Suzy says:

      Wanting to make this, but wondering if you could avoid using almond milk at all. (Is i only have vanilla almond milk in the house)… Ha ha!

      • Jessica says:

        Hi Suzy,

        Yes you can use water instead! Just season it some more :), hope that helps!!

  47. Dale says:

    Made these last night. The cauliflower was so crunchy! I really enjoyed the sauce which I left on the side for dipping. My husband and sons decided they enjoyed dipping theirs in hot sauce better. This was definitely a win in my family book!

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Thank you Dale!! We’re so glad you and your family enjoyed this!

  48. Anna says:

    Hi! Can you sub almond flour for the all purpose gluten free flour? Or what other flours would you recommend?

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Hey Anna almond flour would be a bit too mealy. If you’re not gluten-free you can definitely use regular all purpose flour. We hope this helps!

  49. Aly says:

    I really want to make these for a party appetizer. After making them, do you think they will keep well in a crock pot for a couple hours?

  50. Aly says:

    Yes, I would keep the crock pot on low so that the ‘wings’ stay warm throughout the party. I just wanted your opinion if you think the texture will not keep well. Thanks in advance!

    • Jessica says:

      Hey Aly,

      I haven’t tried a crockpot, but I have kept them in an oven at a very low heat for about 30 minutes. Maybe test these out before the party to see how they work for you? I hope that helps!

  51. Brenda B says:

    These are delicious. I made them this evening. My 18year old dog is finishing up my plate and he loves them too.❤️ Thanks for sharing!

  52. Megan says:

    I was very skeptical about the idea of cauliflower wings.. But I had a cauliflower there that I needed to use up so I thought I’d give them a go.
    I tried them tonight and omg! They’re to die for.. I’ve eaten nearly the entire portion to myself
    Absolutely love this recipe and it will most certainly become a firm favourite.
    I have it added to my recipe rotation already
    Thanks x

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Oh wow thanks so much Megan!!! We’re so happy that you like our recipe and that you’re a new fan of cauliflower wings!

  53. Tracey says:

    Going to an engagement party- how long are they tasty goody if sitting out on table?

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Hi Tracey These can definitely stay for about 2 to 3 hours uncovered and will still be great! I hope this helps!!

  54. kelly says:

    I don’t really like cauliflower but I must say I loved these and ate all the leftovers my husband didn’t want, Yum. I did tweak the sauce a little to my personal taste and used low sodium soy sauce instead of aminos, no problems.

    I know you don’t recommend freezing them, but I assume that was after cooking. I wondered if you had tried battering/panko crombs, then freezing? Sort of making them ready to bake more or less. I have a cauliflower that needs cooking immediately and thought I would give it a try.

    Thanks for the recipe. Best cauliflower I ever ate.

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Kelly,

      I’m so happy that you enjoyed! Sorry I’m just seeing your comment. I haven’t tried freezing them that way but I do like the idea. If I try it I will definitely let you know!

  55. Stacey says:

    I’ve made a few cauliflower wing recipes, but these were by far the best! So good! Would definitely make them again.

  56. Brandibee says:

    Holy moly!!!!! I LOVE this!!! It’s absolutely delicious! The sauce……

  57. Karyn says:

    Thanks for this super yummy recipe!

    These were so delicious, even my carnivore son and husband ate them and said it was the best tasting cauliflower they had ever had!

    A couple of notes I have made for next time….

    My ‘small’ cauliflower obviously was a lot bigger than your small one so I needed to double the recipe. No problem…that just meant I had twice as much of this yummy recipe.

    Next time I think that rather than pouring the sauce on and returning to the oven, I might put them in a wok and pour the sauce on them in there so they get properly coated with it. Not sure how that will go but I am going to try it.

  58. Dee says:

    I have to say, this was one of the tastiest ways to eat vegetables. We didn’t have enough cauliflower so we substituted a little with broccoli. This meal was just gorgeous. Kids enjoyed it too. Thank you so much.

  59. Dominica says:

    I could not find fresh organic Collie flower at the grocery store. Is it OK to use frozen? I would assume that the cooking time is reduced.

    • Dominica says:

      Cauliflower*!! ?

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Hi Dominica. Frozen cauliflower can be used. It’s hard to give an exact time (roughly 5-10 mins) because it depends on the size of your particular frozen cauliflower but I suggest putting the frozen cauliflower in the oven at the same temperature of the recipe, this is to remove the moisture. Pat the cauliflower dry with a paper towel. Once this process is done you can follow the recipe. I hope this helps!

  60. I am so excited I found your blog! This recipe is absolutely divine with TONS of flavor. I paired it with Jasmine rice. I’m not a vegan I’m incorporating plant-based recipes to follow a plant-based diet during the week and it has been fun finding recipes to experiment with.

    My first visit to your web site. I made Sticky Sesame Vegan Cauliflower Wings, and followed the recipe “almost” exactly. I used regular flour, soy sauce. and honey instead of maple since I don’t mind using honey. They were so incredibly good!! You really came up with a winner with this recipe.

    Just made these. Loved them, but ran out of batter. I think my head of cauliflower was too big. No big deal because I saved the rest of the cauliflower and I plan on making them again before the weekend. Prefer the sauce over them vs. just leaving plain.

    These are GREAT! We used coconut beverage because we didn’t have any almond milk, and also fresh ginger rather than dry. Per the notes above, we added more heat by including a 1/2 tsp of cayenne. Next time we will double the sauce recipe because it’s very tasty. Will definitely make this again.

    These turned out amazingly. I made some tweeks just because of personal preference (added real soy sauce plus some a tablespoon or two rice vinegar into the sauce) but GOSH I am so happy I stumbled upon your recipe. Thank you!!

    These are delicious!!! I used almond flour and since I didn’t have gluten free breadcrumbs, I ground up some almonds in the blender and used that. So very good! Thank you!

    These were great ! I didn’t have almond milk so used unsweetened coconut milk and they were still fantastic. Will definitely make again.
