Pro Tips for making the perfect Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower Wings!


Don’t Skip the Parchment paper

It’s essential. Without it, the cauliflower wings will stick to the baking sheet when you try to flip them. Even with the parchment, make sure to use a spatula and flip them carefully. After just 10 minutes of baking, the batter surrounding them is still delicate, and it can easily tear during the flipping process.


Brush with more sauce before serving

To be honest, as good as buffalo cauliflower wings are, they are mostly a vehicle for buffalo sauce. To really pack in that crave-worthy buffalo flavor, make sure to brush the wings with the sauce twice, once mid-bake and once right before serving. FYI, this is not a napkins-optional snack situation.


Eat them right away

Maybe not right away, because these buffalo cauliflower wings are very hot when they come out of the oven. But they are best within a few minutes of baking, when they’re still warm and their edges are deliciously crisp. If you end up with leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. They won’t be as crispy, but they’ll still taste great!
