Baked Mango Sriracha Cauliflower Wings and 16 Vegan Superbowl Recipes!

Print Friendly and PDF
I was planning on resting yesterday and make more recipes for the cookbook. but there is just so much energy in the air about the game! Sea.. HAWKS! all over the news, on the buildings, on the roads.

So here is one last minute Superbowl menu addition! Spicy, sweet, cauliflower wings, a cross between buffalo wings and cocktail meatballs. With mango preserves, orange juice and loads of Sriracha! You can use any other jam or preserves and make a glaze. The cauliflower is covered in thick batter and baked, then tossed in glaze and served. Use gluten-free flour for a gf batter(a combination of Oat flour, rice flour, sorghum flour). Easily made oil-free as well. Happy Chinese new year too!

I cannot stress enough about how vegan food is just food. It is just good awesome food! This is just cauliflower, awesome sauce and addictive. It uses common ingredients and is ready with 20 minutes active time in the kitchen. 

What are your plans for the game!
Steps:
Cut the cauliflower into pieces. Prep the batter. 



Dip cauliflower in the batter and place on parchment lined baking sheet. 
Bake at preheated 450 degrees F for 20 minutes. 



Meanwhile, add the ingredients under glaze in a large pan. Mix, taste and adjust spice, sweet and tang. 
Add the baked cauliflower florets to it and heat on medium heat for 3 minutes to coat the cauliflower. 



Baked Mango Sriracha Cauliflower Wings
Allergen Information: Free of Dairy, egg, corn, soy, yeast. Can be made oil-free, gluten-free with gf flour.
Serves 2-4 depending on hunger level

Ingredients:
1 head of cauliflower (mine was small-medium-ish size)
Batter:
1 cup water
3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp flour (I used half whole wheat + half white)
3/4-1 tsp salt or to taste
1 tsp each of garlic powder, onion powder
1/2 tsp each of smoked paprika, chili powder/cayenne
a very generous dash of black pepper
2 tsp oil (optional)

Mango Sriracha Glaze:
1 cup mango jam or preserves (or use orange marmalade or grape jelly for variations)
1/4 cup Sriracha sauce or to taste :)
1 Tbsp or more hot sauce or to taste (I used Frank's red hot)
1/4 cup Orange juice or apple juice (more juice if you like a thinner glaze)
a generous pinch of garlic powder
1/4 tsp ginger powder

Method:
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Chop the cauliflower into 1.5-2 inch pieces. Mix everything under batter in a bowl until smooth and thick enough batter that can coat the cauliflower pieces well.(add more flour if needed). Dip cauliflower in the batter and place on parchment lined baking sheet. Line the sheet with parchment or grease very well. Bake for 20 minutes. 

Glaze:
In a pan, mix all the ingredients under glaze and heat on medium. Taste and adjust spice, sweet and tang if needed(add sugar or vinegar for extra sweet or tang). You can also use fresh or frozen ripe mango puree + maple/sugar instead of preserves(as suggested by some readers who made these already). Once the glaze is hot, taste and adjust spice + sweet. add the baked cauliflower to it. Toss well to coat carefully and let the glaze come to a boil. 1-2 minutes. You can use a large pan that can fit all the florets or do 2 batches. do not toss/move the florets too much. Remove from pan and Serve hot as is, or with rice/grains or with any creamy cool dips like ranch. Alternatively, bring the sauce ingredients to a boil and pour over the baked cauliflower, toss to coat and serve.

Variations: Use grape jelly or Orange preserves. Add a 1/4 cup ketchup to the glaze.
Use Barbecue sauce or sweet and sour sauce. 
To make buffalo wings, mix in enough hot sauce with melted vegan butter or oil (2:1 ratio) and toss the baked cauliflower in it, bake for a few minutes and serve.

  17. I made the baked sriracha cauliflower wings last night (I used peach preserves instead of mango as that is what I could find), and that was one of my favorite meals in a long time! So good. I'm goinf to double the batch, serve with some rice and veggies, and make them for the whole family next time! Oh, and the chickpea cauliflower tacos are one of my family's favorite meals as well. Thank you for the great recipes!!

  19. I made the Mango Siracha Cauliflower with some substitutions and they were amazing! I used chickpea flour (GF here), kept the batter thick, used orange cauliflower, and apricot preserves because I didn't have mango. I am so glad I tried this. You made me love cauliflower!!!
