Now I have to admit, my recipe is not actually “Vegan” because I did use an egg and milk wash before frying. However, to make it “Vegan,” the original recipe I studied called for 1 1/2 tbsp. of grounded flaxseed mixed with 1/4 of water set for 3 min. then 1/4 tsp. of cayenne pepper was added with 1 tbsp. of Dijon mustard. The rest of my recipe is below.
1 head of cauliflower
1 cup of flour
1 tsp of season salt
1/2 tsp. of garlic salt
1 tsp. of oregano
1/2 tsp. of Cayenne pepper
4-5 cups of extra virgin olive oil
1 bottle of your favorite buffalo or wing sauce
1 tbsp. of milk
Cut cauliflower into chicken like pieces.
Beat eggs in a separate bowl with milk or use flaxseed alternative (you can also just coat in plain soy milk).
Lightly season chopped Cauliflower (with seasoning salt).
Dip seasoned cauliflower one at a time in your egg and milk wash evenly coating them and then dip in flour mixture which includes all dry ingredients listed above (repeat for extra crispiness before frying).
Fry and turn over after a few min. or until golden brown on each side like chicken.
Drain on a napkin and eat as is (kid friendly) or add a mild wing sauce to dip or coat.
