Cooking With Dro: Vegan BBQ Cauliflower Wings

 Seeing that it's the last major weekend of summer, it's time to celebrate the bbq way. The best thing about this is no animals were harmed and you don't need to slave over a hot grill to get your cook on! I was introduced to vegan bbq cauliflower wings at one of my favorite vegan restaurants, Majani here in Chicago. They're everything. A scrumptious chicken tender vibe without the hen. 

So of course I had to try my hand at making my own! Here's how it went down:


-Bag of cauliflower 

-Flour (spelt, millet, or garbanzo is what I've used)

-Spring water

-Spices of your choice (I like sea salt, onion powder, and cayenne powder)

-BBQ sauce of your choice 

-Wax paper 

-Baking sheet

-Vegetable oil of your choice 


1. Wash your cauliflower. I typically pick about 15 pieces for one batch. Choose as many as you want. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 

2. Guys, I am not the measuring cup type of girl. I mix flour, water, and spices to a medium-thick batter based off how many pieces of cauliflower I have. 

3. Add a few drops of vegetable oil onto your wax paper and place it onto your baking sheet.

4. Next, begin to take a piece of cauliflower and dip it in the batter and place it onto the wax paper. Do this with all of your cauliflower pieces.

5. Once you're done, bake the cauliflower for 10-15 minutes or until lightly brown.

6. Once the pieces are baked, take the baking sheet out and add your BBQ sauce onto the cauliflower making sure they're covered. Place baking sheet back into the over and bake for another 10-15 minutes.

7. Take out, cool, and enjoy!

These are easy, quick, and scrumptious to make!
