Serves: 4

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

Total time: 40 minutes



1 medium cauliflower head, cut into florets

150g plain flour

240ml unsweetened plant milk (e.g., almond, soy, or oat milk)

2 tsp garlic powder

Salt and pepper, to taste

Cooking spray or oil, for greasing

For the sauce:

120ml soy sauce

120ml rice vinegar

120ml agave nectar or maple syrup

2 tbsp gochujang (Korean red pepper paste)

1 tbsp sesame oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp grated ginger

2 tbsp cornstarch

60ml water

1 tbsp sesame seeds, for garnish

2 spring onions, sliced, for garnish



Preheat your oven to 220°C (425°F) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly grease with cooking spray or oil.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, plant milk, garlic powder, salt, and pepper until a smooth batter forms.

Dip each cauliflower floret into the batter, allowing any excess to drip off, and place onto the prepared baking sheet.

Bake the cauliflower for 20-25 minutes, or until crispy and golden brown. Flip halfway through cooking to ensure even browning.

While the cauliflower bakes, prepare the sauce. In a small saucepan, combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, agave nectar or maple syrup, gochujang, sesame oil, minced garlic, and grated ginger. Bring to a simmer over medium heat.

In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and water to make a slurry. Stir the slurry into the simmering sauce and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the sauce thickens.

Once the cauliflower is cooked, toss the wings in the sauce until well coated.

To serve:

Serve the Sticky Korean-Style Cauliflower Wings garnished with sesame seeds and sliced spring onions. Enjoy!


Additional Tips:

Serve these cauliflower wings alongside some vegan ranch or blue cheese dressing for dipping.

For a spicier kick, add some extra gochujang or some sriracha sauce to the mix.


Allergy information / alternatives:

This recipe is naturally vegan. Ensure the gochujang you use is free of any allergens.
