Bang Bang Cauliflower


Crunchy Cauliflower Wings

½ cauliflower head around

1 cup flour whole-wheat or regular

½ tsp. pepper

Pinch of salt

1 tsp. coriander powder

1 tsp. cumin powder

¾ cup plant-based milk unsweetened

2 cups fine bread crumbs

Bang Bang Sauce

4 tbsp. vegan mayonnaise

3 tbsp. sweet chili sauce

1 tbsp. sriracha

Juice ½ lime


Add the flour, spices, and plant-based milk to a big bowl. Combine well until you have a perfectly smooth batter with no lumps.

Break the cauliflower into florets, add to the batter, mix well, and ensure they are all completely coated.

Add the bread crumbs to a bowl and using your hands, bread each floret by dipping it into the breadcrumbs and place on a baking tray or air-fryer basket.

To cook the cauliflower bites perfectly you can oven-bake or air-fry the florets. If you are using an air-fryer, you may need to make two or three batches so you don't overcrowd the basket. With a brush, add some oil to the florets, set the air-fryer to 180C (350F), and air-fry for 16 minutes. If you are using the oven, leave some space between each floret to ensure they all get extra crispy.

Preheat the oven to 200C (400F) and bake for about 30 minutes.

Bang Bang Sauce

Combine the vegan mayo, sweet chili sauce, sriracha sauce, and lime juice in a medium-sized bowl.

When the cauliflower is ready, place the cauliflower in a large mixing bowl or plate and add the Bang Bang Sauce. Mix well until all the cauliflower bites are evenly coated with sauce.

Sprinkle some sesame seeds and serve.
