Wing Wednesday can now be for all the vegetarians out there. These honey garlic baked cauliflower wings will knock your socks off. Oh man, they are so delicious. And the bonus, only cauliflower was harmed in the process!
I’m going to quote the Picky Husband himself as he said these cauliflower wings “blew him away”. He even went on to say they were one of the best things I’ve ever made. Now, I’m not sure if the fact that he had just worked a 13 hour day (doing manual labour) and was famished played a factor, but either way this honey garlic cauliflower got his approval!
So besides these cauliflower wings being Picky Husband Approved, they are naturally sweetened, have a little kick (just a little one), and have the texture of the old fashioned kind of wing. I think it’s safe to say we are winning at life here. ♥
Baked Cauliflower Wings
time to make: ~ 50 minutes
- 1 medium CAULIFLOWER
- 1/2 cup ALMOND MILK
- 3/4 cup WATER
- 3/4 cup BROWN RICE FLOUR
- 2 teaspoons GARLIC POWDER
- 2 teaspoons ONION POWDER
- 1 teaspoon liquid HONEY
- 1 teaspoon AVOCADO OIL
honey garlic glaze
- 1/2 cup WATER
- 3 teaspoons ARROWROOT STARCH
- 1/2 cup liquid HONEY
- 2 GARLIC CLOVES (cut finely)
- 1 tablespoon TAMARI
- 1/2 teaspoon ONION POWDER
- 1/2 teaspoon SIRACHA
- Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and cut the cauliflower into medium pieces (you don’t want too large of pieces).
- Combine all batter ingredients in one bowl and mix. Individually dip each floret of cauliflower into the batter and tap it on the side to remove excess batter. Place on a lined baking sheet. Continue to cover all the cauliflower by dipping it in the batter bowl, tapping it on the side and placing it on the baking sheet.
- Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes- or until browned. Option to flip cauliflower half way through.
- In a sauce pan, add all the sauce ingredients, bring to a slight boil, and whisk thoroughly. Remove from the heat and set aside.
- Remove the cauliflower from the oven after the allotted time.
- Brush the cauliflower with the honey garlic sauce using a pastry/ glazing brush. A spoon would probably work too but not sure if it would evenly cover the cauliflower. You should have some of the honey garlic sauce left over, set this aside for the end.
- Be careful not to drown the cauliflower in the sauce as then it won’t get crispy.
- Place back in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
- Remove from the oven. Let cauliflower cool. Then before serving, brush the cauliflower with the leftover honey garlic sauce. Option to top with sesame seeds and green onion.
