My expectations were met the moment I tasted these bites of heaven. You may not believe me, but they taste just like hot wings! And this restaurant has vegan poblano ranch to go with the hot wings and it’s so delicious I had to take some to go. These are also a great snack to make at home and it’s really easy.

  • Line a cookie sheet with non-stick paper (parchment paper)
  • Dip each cauliflower floret in the flour mixture and then place each piece on the parchment paper
  • Bake these for 8-12 minutes on 425 degrees and then once the batter gets crunchy on the top side, flip each piece over and bake for an additional 6-8 minutes.
