If you enjoy buffalo sauce, this recipe is for you! These cauliflower bites are the perfect mix of crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. A great appetizer that’s easy to make and tastes amazing.


  • 1 head of cauliflower

  • ½ cup of flour

  • 1 cup of plain soy milk

  • ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon of smoked paprika

  • ½ teaspoon of salt

  • ½ cup of panko bread crumbs

  • ½ cup of buffalo hot sauce

  • 2 tablespoon Valentina Hot Sauce (optional but I think it adds a nice flavor)

  • 2 tablespoons of tahini


If baking, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Air fryer will be set to 425 degrees. Wash and cut cauliflower and set aside in a large bowl. Add the next 5 ingredients together in a medium size bowl and mix well. Add panko bread crumbs to a different bowl. Dip each cauliflower piece into the batter, then roll into panko bread crumbs. Spread evenly on a pan lined with parchment paper or in the air fryer basket. If using the oven, bake for 20-24 minutes, flipping halfway through. If using the air fryer, cook for 15-20 minutes, flipping midway through. Next, remove the cauliflower wings from the pan and place them in a large bowl. Mix hot sauces and tahini into a small bowl then pour onto the cauliflower wings. Toss and coat well. Add a loose fitting lid or plate on top of the wings and let sit for about 10 minutes. Sometimes I like to place the cauliflower back in the air fryer for 2 minutes to add an extra crisp instead of letting it sit. Serve and enjoy!
