BBQ Cauliflower: Your best, healthy alternative to BBQ chicken wings.

Barbecue chicken wings are always a crowd pleaser, but what if I told you that you could achieve the same great taste but with cauliflower instead?

The phrase “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it,” doesn’t apply to this delicious meat-free alternative. Beloved by vegans, omnivores and carnivores alike, this is a perfect Sunday football snack.

Don’t trust me? I guess you’ll have to see for yourself. Who knows, maybe it’ll be your new meatless Monday go to.



  • 1 large cauliflower head
  • 1 cup any flour
  • 2 cups nut milk
  • 1 ½ boxes of crackers
  • 1 bottle of bbq sauce
  • 4 medium sized bowls


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Peel the leaves off the cauliflower, cut the head from the stem and pull apart the florets. They will be large and should be cut into roughly two-three inch pieces. Wash and put to the side.
  4. In a bowl whisk together the flour and milk. If the mixture is lumpy put the batter to a blender and blend on low for 15 seconds. Transfer back to bowl. Be careful to not overmix, the consistency should be that of pancake batter.
  5. Add crackers to food processor and set to grind setting. Transfer crumbs to bowl.
  6. Dip florets into batter, drip off excess, roll in cracker crumbs and place on baking sheet. Repeat.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  8. Pour bbq sauce into a bowl. Using tongs, dip the wings into the sauce once again dripping off the excess. Place back on baking sheet.
  9. Bake for another 10 minutes.
