Preheat your oven to 450 degrees, Fahrenheit. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or grease well.
Chop your head of cauliflower into bite sized florets.
To a large mixing bowl with a lid (can also use a Tupperware), add the all-purpose flour, plant based milk, garlic powder, salt and pepper to make the batter. Whisk well.
Add the cauliflower florets to the batter then add the lid, and shake well until all florets are covered well in batter.
In a second large mixing bowl with a lid (can also use a large Tupperware) add the breadcrumbs. Transfer the battered cauliflower into bowl with bread crumbs. Add the lid and shake until all florets are well coated in bread crumbs.
Divide the breaded cauliflower florets between two baking sheets. Make sure they are spaced out enough to allow them to crisp up. If they are too close together they will steam and not get nearly as crispy.
Bake for 25 minutes.
While the cauliflower wings are baking, prepare the tahini ranch and buffalo sauce.
To make the tahini ranch, simply mix together all tahini ranch ingredients listed above until well combined. Transfer ranch to the fridge to chill.
After 25 minutes of baking, carefully transfer the florets back into your large mixing bowl that you used for the breadcrumbs (does not need to be clean) and add the buffalo sauce mixture. Add the lid and shake to coat all florets in buffalo sauce. Transfer florets back to your baking sheets and bake again for another 25 minutes.
After 25 minutes, remove from oven and enjoy immediately.
Storage: These cauliflower buffalo wings are really best fresh but will last up to 3 days in the fridge. They will be significantly less crispy after refrigeration.
This tahini ranch does not taste like traditional ranch but is a great dairy-free, oil-free alternative. Follow Your Heart makes a good store-bought vegan ranch.
I have not tried making these wings with gluten free flour or gluten free bread crumbs but if you give it a try, please let me know!
