Crispy baked, lemon and pepper spiced cauliflower wings that are perfect for a party!
What’s better than eating finger foods while watching sports?
I know that chicken wings are a crowd favorite, however, once you’ve tried cauliflower wings you may pivot over to the veggie side!
These wings are packed with flavor, crispy, filling and so fun to eat.
It’s a total game changer and you can eat it all in one bite!
Not only are these vegetarian and vegan friendly but they are baked instead of fried.
With this method, the cauliflower wings still come out crispy on the outside and soft and juicy on the inside!
Lemon pepper seasoning is what my family likes but this recipe can also be converted to BBQ or classic Buffalo!
So why are cauliflower wings all the rage these days?
For one, this technically “unhealthy” food is made healthier by using cauliflower as it’s packed with fiber and vitamins.
Cauliflower make for a great “wing” shape, are so easy to make, and the vegetable can take on any seasoning that you like.
To make the “wing” shape, I like using the whole cauliflower, this includes the stem!
The stem has added nutrients and you will be left with much less food waste.

Make the Dredge Batter
First, preheat your oven to 400°F.
Wash and cut your cauliflower into 'wing' size and shape.
I like to include as much of the stalk as possible to not waste any of the vegetable and it will also resemble a chicken drum/wing.
Keep the pieces bigger rather than smaller.
To make the batter, add the flour, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt, lemon pepper, and the zest of 1 lemon to a bowl and mix to combine.
Next, add the milk and whisk well until the batter is lump free.
Dredge and Coat The Cauli Wings
Bake The Cauli Wings
Toss the Cauli Wings in the Lemon Pepper Sauce
After the cauli wings have baked, make the lemon pepper sauce.
Melt the butter in a small sauce pan or your microwave for about 20-30 seconds then add the lemon pepper seasoning.
Add the lemon pepper sauce to a big bowl then add a few of the cauli wings and lightly coat the wings then place them back on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake the wings once more for 7-10 minutes at 420°F.
