Today is a special one, I decided to create a second version of the Spicy Orange Sriracha Chicken Wings that I am also sharing here today, but swapping in veggies for the meat. Let it be known that I hate putting food words in quotes. It’s stupid. I will acknowledge this. But… sometimes it’s the only option. Cauliflower does in fact NOT have wings. I’m aware of this. Maybe if you fed it Red Bull, but otherwise no. OK. Not funny. Sorry. I digress, there really isn’t a good name for these. “Cauli-wings” is tempting, but let’s just be real, I don’t think this is a good choice if we’re talking SEO, google and keywords, do people even use that term? Blah blah. So here we are, another blog post with quotes. I’m rolling with it.

It may seem odd to be sharing, on the same day, a chicken wing recipe, along with a matching cauliflower “wing” recipe. But here’s the reality, I freakin’ LOVE vegetables you guys. They make my soul happy, they make my belly sing and if you are asking me, they are just always the best choice. I’ll eat the heck out of a chicken wing, don’t get me wrong, but if I can have a real-food veggie option, I want that, too instead!

These beautiful cauli-wings are made with two of my favorite things. Homemade marmalade and spicy Sriracha. After making several batches of honey-sweetened orange marmalade this past week, I’ve been wanting to put it on absolutely everything. Savory dishes are not immune from this desire. This sticky, finger-licking good wing sauce, turns your run of the mill cauliflower into the very best treat, for the big game, next to an ice cold beer. A great way to sneak veggies into the mix, these will turn even the meatiest of meat fans into a veggie lover!

I have become slightly obsessed with the idea of cauliflower “wings” and cannot wait to try these. Recently I made a breaded cauliflower Chinese-type thing and it was great, but I think your recipe would be perfect this weekend while I’m not really watching the superbowl hahah (:

BETH. These are seriously amazing. I don’t get too into the Super Bowl, but I am tooootally making these for myself while I pretend to watch the game. Also, laughing out loud at the “maybe if you fed it Red Bull” comment. 😉

Your recipes are absolutely the best. I keep saving them and saving them. I hope for a recipe book someday. I always prefer a book to online recipes but yours are the exception.
We have absolutely the same palate. Thank you for so much creativity. You are the best.

Just made these… Wondering if the batter is correct? Mine was quite watery, and did not stick on the cauliflower as a result. Was 1 cup water correct?

Yes 1 cup is correct. What kind of flour did you use? Did you also include the starch? If it’s too watery you can try adding additional flour to thicken it.

I did 3/4c almond flour and 2 tbsp tapioca starch.

I was perusing the net and found your site (YAY!). I just pinned your breakfast muffins on my Pinterest page and then noticed this post. Since I just bought 2 heads of organic cauliflower, I thought that this would be great to make over the weekend. I don’t have tapioca starch but was wondering if I could use arrowroot powder (of which I have an abundance-thank you, Amazon) instead. Have you ever subbed arrowroot for tapioca?
