Crispy vegan Cauliflower Wings tossed with homemade buffalo sauce are so delicious you won't even miss the meat.
1 (48-oz ) bottle vegetable oil
1 head cauliflower
1 cup all purpose flour
½ cup cornstarch
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Cajun spice
1 ¼ tablespoons baking powder
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 ¼ cup seltzer water
¾ cup Frank’s hot sauce
5 tablespoons vegan butter
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 ¼ teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
Heat the vegetable oil in frying pan over medium heat.
Cut the cauliflower into large bite size pieces. Set aside.
Add the flour, cornstarch, salt, Cajun spice, baking powder and black pepper to a bowl and whisk it all together. Then, pour in the seltzer water and whisk until combined.
Dip a piece of cauliflower into the batter and let the excess batter drip off. Carefully drop the cauliflower into the oil and fry for three to four minutes on each side, or until the cauliflower turns a light golden brown.
Add five to six pieces of cauliflower to the oil at a time and place them on a plate with a paper towel to allow the excess oil to drip off.
While the cauliflower is frying, make the buffalo sauce.
Add the hot sauce, vegan butter, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder and onion powder to a small pan and heat over medium heat. Let it simmer for five minutes before turning it off.
Remove the pan from the heat and let it sit for five minutes.
Once all of the cauliflower has cooked, gently toss it in the buffalo sauce.
