Cauliflower Hot Wings with Vegan Aioli

Ingredients:
  1. 1 head of cauliflower
  2. 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (or chickpea flour for a gluten-free version)
  3. 3/4 cup unsweetened almond or soy milk
  4. 1/4 cup water
  5. 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  6. 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika powder
  7. salt
  8. black pepper
  9. 3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs (omit for a gluten-free version)
  10. 1 cup spicy BBQ sauce
  11. 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce (optional)
  12. 2 green onions, cut into rings

Instructions:
  • Heat the oven to 350 °F.
  • Carefully cut the cauliflower into bite-sized florets.
  • In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, the plant-based milk, the water, the garlic power, the paprika powder, the salt, and the black pepper.  Stir until well combined. For a gluten-free version substitute the all-purpose flour with chickpea flour (also omit the water if using chickpea flour). 
  • Dip the florets into the batter, so they’re completely coated.
