  • A recipe everyone can enjoy – Vegans, Gluten-Free, Keto, low calorie, low carb! 
  • Bigger serving size to enjoy with lower calories 
  • They taste amazing – better than you will expect

Please note: these cauliflower buffalo wings do not taste like traditional chicken buffalo wings. They are made with cauliflower and not chicken so do not expect them to taste like chicken.

Nonetheless, our vegan and gluten-free cauliflower wings are delicious in their own way.

What to eat with Buffalo Cauliflower Wings? Let’s talk dips:

Our buffalo cauliflower wings go well with a nice cool dip. Vegan Ranch works well, you could also use vegan aioli – you can make this yourself by mixing vegan mayonnaise and garlic together. 

One of our favourite accompaniments to cauliflower buffalo wings is a vegan blue cheese sauce dip – the coolness of the blue cheese is the perfect match with the hotness of Frank’s hot sauce. 

You can try this new Sacla option.

Salca Blue Cheese Vegan sauce

Or this vegan and gluten-free Follow your Heart Bleu Cheese Dressing, which is perfect as a wing dip and comes with our friends at The Vegan Society’s Trademark seal of approval.

  • 1 large head cauliflower cut into florets
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 80 g Gluten-Free plain flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 6 tbsp plant-based milk we used almond
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 130 g Frank's RedHot Buffalo Wings Sauce


  • Heat oven to 180 degrees celsius and line a baking tray with baking paper. 
  • Cut the cauliflower into florets. Spray florets with vegetable oil.
  • In a large bowl sieve the GF flour and add the garlic powder, plant-based milk and salt and pepper. Stir until combined.
  • Dip the florets into the batter until fully coated. Lay them on the baking tray and put in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
  • Add 1 tsp of oil to the buffalo sauce (this helps the sauce stick to the florets). Remove the cauliflower wings from the oven after 20-25 minutes and coat thoroughly in the sauce until fully covered.
  • Put the wings back onto the baking tray and place in the oven again for another 20 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and serve with the dip of your choice!
