Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: American
Serves: serves 4
  • 3 small or 2 large heads cauliflower, cut into large drumstick-like pieces.

Buttermilk Breading Mixture
  • 2 eggs worth of egg replacer
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1 Tbsp ACV to create buttermilk

Seasoned Flour
  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Himalayan rock salt
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 Tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • peanut or vegetable oil for frying
  • Buffalo Sauce
  • Maple Garlic Sauce (recipe below)
  1. Heat oven to 425F and roast cauliflower in oven for 40 minutes, turning after 20 mins.
  2. Remove cauliflower from heat and set aside.
  3. Whisk together egg replacer and set aside.
  4. Whisk soy milk with ACV and set aside for 5 minutes to create soy buttermilk.
  5. In a large bowl whisk together egg replacer and soy buttermilk mixture.
  6. Whisk all of the ingredients for the seasoned flour together in a separate large bowl.
  7. To cook, you can use a deep fryer or a deep pan.
  8. If using a deep fryer, heat frying oil (I like peanut or vegetable) to 325F.
  9. If using a deep pan, pour enough vegetable oil to measure 3 inches inside the pan. Cover with a lid and heat the oil over medium-high heat to 325F.
  10. Dredge the cauliflower in the flour mixture and shake off any excess. Then dip the drumstick in your buttermilk mixture, and dredge the cauliflower again in flour mixture and place in a separate bowl or baking pan.
  11. Cook and handful of cauliflower drumsticks in the hot oil all at once. In a deep fryer this should cook up golden brown and crispy in about 3-4 minutes.
  12. If you are using a deep pan with a lid, turn the cauliflower occasionally. This should take about 3 to 6 minutes. Keep an eye on the pieces and remove when also golden brown and crispy.
  13. Place finished drumsticks on a tray or bowl lined with paper towel to soak up excess oil.
  14. Continue to fry your cauliflower in batches, allowing the oil to return to 325°F between batches.
  15. When you have fried all your cauliflower, whisk together your sauces.
  16. Toss the finished cauliflower in various sauces of choice, or simple dip wings dry.
