IN THIS FREE EBOOK
Break down the cauliflower into similar size florets. I like to turn the cauliflower upside down, remove the green leaves and cut from around the stalk to remove the big pieces of cauliflower. Break these pieces down further into florets.
Place parchment paper or a silicone liner on a baking sheet and spray with olive oil or avocado oil spray. Add cauliflower to the baking sheet.
Bake at 450F for 20 minutes.
While the cauliflower bakes, melt the buttered flavored coconut oil, mix it with the hot sauce, garlic powder, turmeric and salt.
After 20 minutes in the oven, take the cauliflower out and pour the buffalo mixture over top. Mix well to fully coat each floret.
Return back to the oven and bake 10-15 more minutes until perfectly tender.
- Give the wings a little more color by using turmeric! This spice is what makes mustard so yellow, and a little goes a long way!
- Traditional wings are typically tossed in a mixture of hot sauce, butter and spices. To keep this recipe vegan, I used butter flavored coconut oil, but you could easily use ghee if you aren’t vegan.
- This buffalo sauce is not super spicy, you could easily increase the heat by adding more hot sauce or crushed red pepper flakes.
What to serve with these
We all know wings are made for dipping! Here are some great dipping sauces you could use:
Store leftover keto cauliflower buffalo wings in the fridge for up to 4 days.
I would not recommend freezing these vegan cauliflower wings, as the texture would change. You could puree the cauliflower with vegetable broth to make a buffalo cauliflower soup to store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
