Oven Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Wings

  • No air fryer? No problem. Here's how to make your Buffalo cauliflower wings in the oven.
  • Preheat oven to fan assisted 160C / 180C / gas 6 / 350F.
  • Place the cauliflower in a single layer on a lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 35-40 mins (until done and is crisp at the edges with a little bite still or until it reaches your desired doneness) turning a couple of times during baking.
  • Serve warm, although can also be served cold with some extra hot sauce.


Tips For Making Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

  • Make sure the cauliflower is not touching. This allows maximum air circulation inside the fryer, so your cauliflower bites will cook evenly and turn out nicely crispy.
  • Start with a milder hot sauce and use just 2-3 tbsp if you are worried about it being too hot.
  • But if you really want to bring the heat, go ahead and add an extra tbsp or 2 of hot sauce.
  • For dipping, serve with extra hot sauce or some smashed avocado.
  • If not vegan, pair with a side of creamy buffalo cheese dip.
