Parties need bite-size snacks. It’s just the rule. I love cauliflower wing recipes for a quick vegan tailgate option or an easy weeknight dinner. And there’s no end to the flavour combinations for your cauliflower wing recipes!

Here’s the thing: I’m in love with cauliflower wings, cauliflower bites, and just cauliflower itself. Cauliflower is so versatile, and you can use cauliflower in anything and it comes out beautifully. This is one of those meatless recipes that will have even the meat lovers come-a-running.

My ultimate goal is to have like every flavour under the sun, kind of like my favourite wings place before I went vegetarian then vegan. Then, one day, someone will reach out and create a vegan wings menu in my name, (preferably near my house) so that I can go and eat my own favourite cauliflower wings whenever I want. A girl can dream, right?!

Expert Tips for Success & FAQ

Here are some great tips and tricks for the crunchiest, yummiest cauliflower wings recipes:

  • Keep it chunky. When chopping up the cauliflower, don’t make the florets too small. You want the veggies small enough for 1-2 bites, but not so small they burn quickly. You can leave some stem to make it a heartier piece, too.
  • Toss them together. There’s no need to individually dip cauliflower wings into sauce. You can toss them in your wing sauce in a mixing bowl for a super fast finish!
  • Fresh is best. That being said, you can use frozen cauliflower florets that have been completely thawed and dried. I even bake them plain for a few minutes at 350 degrees F to make sure all the moisture is gone.
  • Cornstarch optional. This helps make the crispiest cauliflower wings. However, if you can’t have it, just skip it! No need to swap.
