INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 450 F

  2. Mix together the dry batter ingredients in a medium sized bowl, then add in the soy milk a little at a time. You may need it all. The batter should be slightly runny, but not so much that it doesn't adhere to the cauliflower florets.

  3. For each cauliflower floret, dip completely into the batter, transfer to a drying rack with a plate it to catch the drips (this is to ensure the cauliflower isn't too coated with excess batter), place on a parchment covered baking sheet

  4. Bake for 20 minutes, flipping half-way, until browned

  5. While they're baking, make the Chipotle Sauce: add all chipotle sauce ingredients to large bowl and mix thoroughly

  6. Take cauliflower wings out of the oven, then dump them into the big bowl with the chipotle sauce. Toss until the sauce is evenly coated, then with your hands, shake off the excess sauce and spread the wings out on the baking sheet again.

  7. Bake for another 15 minutes, flipping half way. The glaze should be caramelized at the end

  8. While they're baking, make your Cashew Dill Ranch Dip: add all ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth

  9. Take out the wings and let cool 5 minutes, then plate cauliflower wings with chopped carrots, celery and the dip topped with chives!
