Bang Bang Cauliflower

These delicious, roasted, sweet ‘n spicy sticky Bang Bang Cauliflower Bites aren’t like cauliflower wings as they’re not dipped in batter but are meant to be served as a topping for salad, rice or noodle dishes, or as filling for some tacos!


1 medium head of cauliflower, cut into small florets
2 tbsp corn starch

Bang Bang Sauce:
1/3 cup vegan mayo
1 tbsp sriracha *
Juice of 1 lime
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp coconut sugar
2 tbsp coconut aminos or light soy sauce
1 tsp each of paprika, garlic and onion powder

Sesame seeds
Chopped cilantro


Preheat oven to 425 F/ 220 C.

Add ingredients for the sauce to a large bowl, and whisk until smooth.

Cut cauliflower into small florets, then wash and dry them thoroughly.

Dust florets with cornstarch, and add them to the sauce. Use a spoon or spatula to make sure everything is evenly coated.

Spread cauliflower bites on a lined baking sheet, and bake them for 35-40 minutes.

After every 15 minutes, give them a stir, and coat with any sauce that may have spread or run off.
Since they’re not dipped in batter they won’t crisp up like cauliflower wings but should be a little charred, and deliciously caramelized when done.

Top with sesame seeds and cilantro, and enjoy!

Tip: Add more or less sriracha to your preference! Double the sauce to have extra for drizzling or dipping.
