Ever since discovering this battered and baked cauliflower wings recipe, I've been obsessed with it. Whether I toss them in a buffalo sauce after baking or this General Tso sauce, these cauliflower bites are delicious. Although, I wouldn't go so far as to say that cauliflower wings taste like wings, they're delicious in their own way. Especially served with this vegan General Tso sauce.
For these vegan General Tso cauliflower bites, here's everything you'll need.
For the General Tso sauce:
This recipe is fairly easy to make, it just takes a little bit of time in the oven. But while the oven is doing all the work, you can whip up the sauce and have that ready to go by them time the cauliflower bites are done baking.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt and water to make a batter for the cauliflower. In another bowl, add the panko and set them aside.
Once you have your cauliflower florets ready (washed and dried), you can toss them in the batter. Use a fork to remove and let any excess batter drip off.
Transfer to the bowl with the panko and coat.
Repeat with all remaining cauliflower and place them on a lined (large) baking sheet. You may want to use two baking sheets to make sure the florets are spaced out so they can get crispy.
I use this baking sheet and it fits them all on one (I love it!).
Bake them for 24 minutes, flipping halfway through.
While those are baking, it's time to whisk up the General Tso sauce.
Once the cauliflower florets are done baking and the sauce has cooled. Transfer the cauliflower to a large bowl and pour in the sauce as needed to coat (you will have leftover sauce).
Place back on the baking sheet and bake for eight to nine minutes to get crispy again.
