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.

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.

Vegan & Gluten-Free Cauliflower Hot Wings Recipe, using Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wing Sauce:

Ingredients (makes 3-4):

  • 1 large head of cauliflower, cut into florets 
  • 2 tsp of vegetable oil
  • 80g of GF flour 
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 6 tbsp plant-based milk (we used almond)
  • Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 130g Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wings Sauce


  1. Heat oven to 180 degrees celsius and line a baking tray with baking paper.  
  2. Cut the cauliflower into florets. Spray florets with vegetable oil. 
  3. In a large bowl sieve the GF flour and add the garlic powder, plant-based milk and salt and pepper. Stir until combined. 
  4. Dip the florets into the batter until fully coated. Lay them on the baking tray and put in the oven for 20-25 minutes. 
  5. 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. 
  6. Put the wings back onto the baking tray and place in the oven again for another 20 minutes. 
  7. Remove from the oven and serve with the dip of your choice!
