If broccoli isn’t your favourite vegetable, but you’re looking for a way to spice it up while still eating your greens, I have the perfect way to level up these little trees with one small twist.

Hate it or love it broccoli is a nutritious and essential vegetable we should all be eating (ok mom!). We’ve all been told we need to “eat your vegetables” and I want to show you a mouth-watering technique to make broccoli taste delicious! This is perfect for picky eaters or if you just want to indulge in delicious vegan food.Vegan Bang Bang Sauce Recipe


The taste of this broccoli recipe will be like nothing you’ve had before! It’s crispy, saucy and packs a punch with my vegan bang bang sauce! If you don’t like spice, feel free to cook the broccoli as per the recipe below, but add a different sauce based on your preference.

Most vegan bang bang sauce recipes use vegan mayo, but for a healthier alternative, we’re going to use peanut butter! If you have a nut allergy, vegan mayo might be a better option for you.

Never again do you need to eat steamed or microwaved broccoli. Ready in 15 minutes, this bang bang broccoli works perfectly as a side dish, appetizer or snack.

The inspiration for this recipe came from the Bang Bang Broccoli from Toronto’s Planta Queen. Using a spicy peanut butter based bang bang sauce, it really elevates this simple broccoli tempura to a saucy, full-flavour appetizer.

  • I just tried this but made some changes, so I thought it may be helpful to other visitors! I didn’t have the tempura mix so I just did 1 cup cornstarch with a couple teaspoons of egg replacer powder. Also didn’t have sweet chili paste and only had sambal oelek, so I used that but added a few tbsp of sugar to taste. Also added some mayo to the sauce to help that creamy saucy factor. It was SOOOO delicious. A winner! My family snatched it up within minutes. Can’t wait to make again + maybe try with other veggies? Thanks!!!

  • okay these were sooo good! I had all the ingredients at home and whipped them up super quickly! My kids are so picky but they really liked these lightly deep-fried broccoli with the dipping sauce (I made it non-spicy and it was still delicious)
