SERVES 2- 4

  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¼ cups unsweetened plant-based milk
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 8 tbsp dairy-free butter or spread
  • ¾ cup Buffalo hot sauce

 

FOR THE RANCH SAUCE

  • 5 oz cashews
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened plant-based milk
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • handful fresh parsley
  • 4 chives

Preheat oven to 350°F | Line 2 baking sheets | Small saucepan of boiling water over high heat | Food processor or blender

Add the cashews to the pan of boiling water and boil for 15 minutes, then drain and run under cold water to cool slightly

Meanwhile, break the cauliflower into florets and cut the stem into bite-sized pieces

Put the flour, plant-based milk, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper into a bowl and whisk to a batter | Pour the panko breadcrumbs into another bowl and rub them between your thumb and fingers to break into slightly smaller breadcrumbs

Tip the cauliflower into the batter and toss to coat | Transfer to the bowl of breadcrumbs, a few pieces at a time, and toss gently until well coated | Spread the cauliflower pieces over the lined baking sheets and bake for 20 minutes

Meanwhile, melt the dairy-free butter in the microwave and stir in the hot sauce

After 20 minutes, remove the pans from the oven, drizzle with the butter/ hot sauce, and carefully roll the cauliflower around until the pieces are fully coated | Put the pans back in the oven for 20–25 minutes, until a sharp knife glides into the thickest parts of the cauliflower and the outsides are really golden brown and crispy | Remove from the oven

While the cauliflower is cooking, put all the ingredients for the ranch sauce except for the herbs into the food processor or blender and whizz for 1–2 minutes until smooth and creamy | Transfer to a serving bowl | Finely chop the parsley and chives and add most of them to the sauce, reserving a little for garnish

Serve the cauliflower wings while they’re still hot on a serving plate, sprinkled with the remaining herbs and with the ranch sauce on the side
