Serves: 4

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

Total time: 40 minutes





  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 220°C (428°F) and lining a baking tray with parchment paper for non-stick baking.

  2. Create a smooth batter by combining the flour, almond milk, garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl.

  3. Coat each cauliflower floret thoroughly in the batter, allowing any excess to drip off, and arrange them on the prepared tray without overcrowding.

  4. Bake for 20 minutes until the coating is firm and golden, indicating a crispy exterior.

  5. For the BBQ glaze, mix the vegan BBQ sauce with apple cider vinegar and molasses in a saucepan, and simmer over low heat to combine the flavors.

  6. Once the cauliflower is baked, toss them gently in the warm BBQ glaze until each wing is well-coated, then place them back on the tray.

  7. Bake for an additional 5 minutes to caramelize the glaze slightly.

  8. Serve the wings sprinkled with fresh chives and a sprinkle of sesame seeds for added texture and flavor.


Additional Tips:

  • Add a dash of cayenne pepper to the BBQ glaze for an extra kick.

  • Serve with a cooling vegan yogurt dip to balance the heat.


Allergy information / alternatives:

  • For a gluten-free option, use a gluten-free flour blend and check the label on your BBQ sauce to ensure it's gluten-free.

  • Substitute almond milk with any other plant-based milk of your preference.
