Cajun Cauliflower Wings with Creamy Avocado Dip

There are many cauliflower wing recipes out there and I wanted to make my version healthier yet still packed full of flavour. By using wholegrain flour and baking them (instead of deep fat frying) these gorgeous wings and nutritious and guilt free. They can be served with any dips, BBQ, sour cream or salsa but my homemade creamy avocado dip is my favourite. You can add extra garlic, chilli or coriander depending on your tastes.

Ingredients

Cauliflower Wings

  • 1 large cauliflower cut into florets
  • 1 cup wholemeal flour you can use white if you wish
  • 1 cup plant milk unsweetened
  • 1 tbsp Cajun seasoning I got mine in Aldi
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp pink/sea salt
  • season with black pepper

Avocado Dip

  • 1 avocado chopped
  • 1/2 tomato chopped
  • 1/4 cucumber chopped
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • 2 tbsp vegan mayo
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • season with a pinch of salt & pepper

Instructions

  • Cauliflower Wings
  • Preheat oven to 200C/392F

    Cut the cauliflower into florets (not too small) and set aside. In a large bowl mix together the flour, garlic powder, Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper. Pour in the milk and whisk until you have a thick batter. Throw in the florets and using a spoon or your hands coat eat floret in the batter.

    On a baking tray lined with parchment paper lay out each wing (not too close together) & drizzle with a little olive oil (optional). Bake in the centre of the oven for 25-30 minutes until golden brown.

Avocado Dip

  • Add all the ingredients to a bowl or blender and blend briefly (or it will be too runny) until all ingredients are combined.

    Serve the dip with the hot wings immediately. Enjoy!

Notes

Tip: Shake off any excess batter when placing them on your baking tray as it can cause the wings to stick together. Depending on the size of the florets I generally bake for 25 minutes then with a cocktail stick check to see how well the cauliflower is cooked. If the stick is difficult to push into the wing bake for a few extra minutes until the wings are firm but tender.
