The vegan cauliflower wings with the authentic buffalo sauce are popular with both vegans and meat eaters. The taste is the same, as with so many dishes, with the right spices and preparation. You will not have to miss the classic chicken with these vegan wings with ranch dip.
A great comfort food for those who love spicy food. These Cauliflower Bites are so spicy and thanks to the cauliflower, so much healthier than the animal-based chicken wings.
The vegan buffalo wings are tender and soft inside and sticky outside, just like the original.
Cauliflower does not mimic chicken 100%, but thanks to the spicy sauce that makes the appetizer so authentic, you do not need highly processed substitutes.
These hot wings are easily made gluten-free. To match this, we serve these Wings with Ranch to reduce the sharpness in the mouth.
What do you need for vegan Buffalo Wings?
Wholegrain flour or gluten-free flour mixture
Hot sauce (like Cholula)
Tahini or cashew butter
Ranch dressing, to serve:
¾ cup of water
Granulated garlic or garlic powder

How To Make Healthy Buffalo Wings:
Preheat the oven to 400 °F (200 °C). Divide the cauliflower into small florets and mix the marinade. Now mix the cauliflower with the marinade and place it on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake the cauliflower for about 30 minutes or until the desired color is achieved. Halfway through, you can turn the cauliflower.
In a small pot, mix together all the ingredients for the hot sauce until creamy and bring to a boil. Now let the sauce simmer for about 2 minutes, it should be slightly reduced.
Put the cauliflower in a bowl and pour over the buffalo sauce and stir well until all the florets are covered with the sauce. Now put it back on the baking sheet and set it to broil and bake for about 3 minutes until the sauce is caramelized. Serve the Buffalo Wings with ranch dressing.
Mix the soaked cashews and the water in a high-performance mixer until creamy. Put the cashew cream in a bowl and mix with the remaining ingredients.
Season the ranch sauce with sea salt and pepper to your taste.

How spicy are these vegan buffalo wings?
These are very spicy/ hot. My husband liked to eat them. It was too hot for the children. I could only eat them with a lot of ranch sauce, otherwise they would have been too hot for me as well. If you do not like it so hot, you can use less hot sauce. But the classic Buffalo wings are very spicy.

So I would love to make this as it looks amazing but just needed some clarification. I'm not sure where ingredients for the "marinade" end and "hot sauce begins". Is water the first ingredient for the hot sauce?? Hope that makes sense. Thank you!!
I just updated it. The hot sauce starts with the hot sauce. Sorry that it was confusing. It should be clearer now, Ali.
