For the sauce


Coat and bake the cauliflower

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place a wire rack on top of it and spray with cooking spray for super crispy wings.
  2. In a medium-size mixing bowl, crack and lightly beat the eggs and season them with a little salt and black pepper
  3. In a separate medium-size bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, flour, salt, and pepper.
  4. Set up a dredging station with the cauliflower florets, eggs, and breadcrumb mixture. Dip each piece of cauliflower fully in the eggs, then in the breadcrumbs. Shake off any excess and place each coated piece of cauliflower onto the baking sheet. Continue until you have coated all of the cauliflower pieces.
  5. Spray the cauliflower well with olive oil cooking spray or drizzle with olive oil
  6. Bake in the center rack of the oven for 25-30 minutes, until nice and golden brown.

To make the sauce

  1. While the cauliflower is baking, you can make the crazy good sauce: Add all sauce ingredients to a small pot and whisk well while bringing it to a boil. Reduce to simmer and whisk some more for 2 minutes. Then remove it from the heat and allow it to thicken a little while it cools slightly.

Make the cauliflower wings

  1. Once the cauliflower is done baking, add it to a large bowl, drizzle the sauce all over it and shake the bowl a little to make sure all of the wings are covered in the sauce.
  2. Pour the cauliflower wings onto a platter or large plate, pour the remaining sauce from the bottom of the bowl all over the top. Garnish with diced chives and toasted sesame seeds.
  3. Serve warm and enjoy!
