Baked Sriracha Cauliflower Wings

March 11, 2021
I’ve made cauliflower wings before and I found deep frying them a nuisance as it uses loads of oil. I created this recipe for baked cauliflower wings so that the wings are easier to cook and slightly healthier to eat.

My favorite condiment ever is sriracha and I use it wherever I can. Even if you don’t like spice you’ll enjoy this sauce as the addition of the vegan mayonnaise and soy sauce creates a tanginess that works really well with the crunchiness of the cauliflower wings.
