These super easy vegan cauliflower wings are a staple favourite in our household – super bowl, dinner parties, Netflix night – you name it! It’s the perfect vegan finger food for so many occasions and you can be sure that people will be asking for more!

This recipe uses only simple ingredients from your pantry and it’s easily adjustable if you’re missing one (unless it’s the cauliflower that’s missing, that might be a tricky one! ;)).



  • 1 head of cauliflower

For the batter:

  • 4 Tbsp chickpea flour
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 58 Tbsp plant milk, enough to result in a thick but runny texture (I used soy)

For the breadcrumbs mix:

  • 6 Tbsp panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika powder


  1. Start by washing your cauliflower & cut it into the separate florets. Don’t waste the stem of your cauliflower – this is just as perfectly tasty and it’s great to use up any leftover batter.
  2. Blend up your batter: First combine all the dry ingredients in a medium size bowl, then slowly pour in the plant milk and whisk until you get a thick but liquid texture.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the breadcrumbs mix.
  4. Line a baking tray and preheat your oven to 180C.
  5. Dip each cauliflower floret into the batter, let it drip off gently for about 5 seconds, then drop it into the breadcrumbs mix and cover it all around. Place on the baking tray and repeat with the rest of the cauliflower florets.
  6. Place the tray in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes at 180C.
  7. Serve with organic tomato ketchup or a simple yogurt dip. Enjoy!


The amount of batter and breadcrumbs you will need very much depends on the size of your cauliflower and it’s florets. For reference I’ve used a medium size head of cauliflower on this occasion. If you have leftover batter/breadcrumbs you can use it for leftover veggies such as broccoli, carrots, asparagus, and even aubergines (eggplant) & potato!

If you don’t have any chickpea flour to hand, you can substitute it with regular plain flour. (Or do a 50/50 if you don’t have enough of either)
