1medium head cauliflowerif using a large head, you may need to double the batter and sauce quantities
¾cupall-purpose gluten free flour
¾cupunsweetened almond milk
1tablespoonlemon pepper seasoning
1cupcrispy gluten free breadcrumbsseasoned with salt & pepper and 1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
chopped parsley and freshly grated lemon zestfor garnish
Lemon Pepper Glaze
8 ½tablespoonslemon juice
4 ½tablespoonsmaple syrup or agave nectar
1teaspoonfreshly ground black pepper
1teaspoonfreshly grated lemon zest
1teaspooncornstarch + 1 teaspoon watermix together separately from the rest of ingredients in a small bowl for a cornstarch slurry
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F/230 degrees C.
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 and lemon pepper seasoning in a bowl to make the batter. If the batter is too thick, feel free to thin it out with some more milk and vice versa. 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 heating & 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, and garnish with parsley and freshly grated lemon zest. Eat immediately - enjoy!
Lemon Pepper Glaze
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 4 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 if you want it sweeter. Remove from heat until needed.
If you don’t need gluten-free breadcrumbs, use panko breadcrumbs!
