Ain’t no thing but a cauliflower wing

FullSizeRenderAin’t no thing but a cauliflower wing

I have to admit, cauliflower scared me a bit. I thought “no way this will work” as I battered the florets and stuck them in the oven. But man oh man have I even impressed myself. Next sporting event or family gathering where you need some good finger foods, give these babies a try. They’re way healthier and cheaper than your traditional chicken wings, and for someone who doesn’t exactly trust myself to cook meat all the time, there is no risk of pink interior/ food poisoning with these! What’s not to love?!


  • 1/2 head of cauliflower, separated into florets
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • 2/3 cup of flour (gluten free if necessary)
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • sauce of choice: hot sauce, bbq…


  • preheat oven to 450 and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray
  • Combine water, flour and seasonings to form a pancake like batter
  • Coat cauliflower florets with the batter, removing excess with fingers so florets are covered but not dripping
  • Place in single layer on baking sheet and stick in the oven
  • Bake for 25 minutes, take out and flip over to make sure all sides get crispy
  • Take out after 30 mins and brush with sauce of choice then pop back in for 2-3 mins to get the sauce to harden and BOOM you’re done! Go grab your blue cheese, ranch, and carrot sticks and enjoy
  • I made bbq, hot sauce, and plain ones and dunked them all! You really can’t go wrong
