Are you looking for the perfect recipe for vegan buffalo wings? Buffalo wings are a classic food – popular for parties, watching sports, or just a fun family dinner. These meatless versions are sure to impress – packed with flavor to impress your party guests, and completely vegan.
Cauliflower is a perfect (and much healthier) stand-in for traditional hot wings in this recipe. I have to admit I make this one almost entirely for the sauce. These cauliflower wings are basted in a spicy mango and chili pepper glaze, and then baked to perfection. The combination of sweet ans spicy is irresistible. Get the recipe here.
These vegan buffalo wings are made with homemade seitan, which is an amazing vegan source of protein. A single serving of seitan can have over 20 grams of protein! Homemade seitan is surprisingly easy to make by just mixing vital wheat gluten with spices and water. These seitan wings are hearty and more than a little spicy! They are perfect for a backyard barbecue. You can tone down the spice level if you choose, by selecting a milder hot sauce. Get the recipe here.
No tailgate party is complete without a big platter of hot wings, and cauliflower is the perfect substitute in this vegan-friendly recipe. The spicy hot sauce is delicious and the baked cauliflower wings are nice and crunchy. I served these to my extended family at a recent get together, and they were a huge success. Even the kids couldn’t get enough! To top it off, the batter is completely gluten-free as well. Get the recipe here.
Alright, so this one is not exactly a vegan buffalo wing recipe. But I couldn’t help including it anyway. This creative recipe uses sweet potatoes, cut into spirals, to make sweet potato “noodles”. The dish is topped off with buffalo cauliflower bites – a really unexpected combination. This one will satisfy your craving for those buffalo wings, but with a dish that looks good enough to serve at a dinner party. Get the recipe here.
This is another vegetarian (and vegan!) buffalo wing recipe that uses seitan – but this one calls for store bough seitan. If you can find it in your area, that’s a great shortcut. This recipe is a little more mild and traditional than the hot buffalo wing recipe above, so it’s a good option for less adventurous guests or those that prefer less spice. Get the recipe here.
