  • Knife
  • Whisk
  • 2 Mixing Bowls
  • Tongs
  • Barbecue


  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • 250ml water
  • 180g plain flour
  • 1tbsp garlic powder
  • 1tbsp onion powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 500g panko breadcrumbs (These can be substituted for regular or gluten-free breadcrumbs)
  • Oil
  • 500g BBQ sauce (if you want this to be a vegan snack, check the ingredients of this sauce)



Using a knife, remove the leaves from the cauliflower. You can also remove some of the stems here but keeping some of these on can make it easier to hold it when you are eating.


Chop the cauliflower into smaller pieces so that they resemble wings.


In a bowl, whisk the water, flour, garlic powder, onion powder and salt to make the batter.


Place the breadcrumbs in a separate bowl.


Add the cauliflower to the bowl with the batter. Gently mix in with a spoon to fully coat. Try not to mix too hard or the cauliflower will fall apart.


Tip the contents of this bowl into the bowl with the breadcrumbs, and gently stir to coat again.


Spread some oil onto the grill on a heated barbecue and place your cauliflower wings onto the heat to cook. These should remain on the grill from approximately 10 minutes, turning halfway though.


Remove from the heat and cover them with BBQ sauce. This can be done by placing them in a bowl with the sauce and covering them, or by brushing the sauce onto them individually. Brushing takes more time, but the wings will be crispier. Either way, they will still taste delicious!


Add the sauce-covered wings back to the barbecue and grill for another 5-10 minutes until the sauce is caramelised.


Serve and enjoy!
