Amazing Crispy Cauliflower Wings with Dill Aioli

Amazing Crispy Cauliflower Wings

My husband loves chicken wings. Like really loves them. And when I first whipped up these Amazing Crispy Cauliflower Wings, we were both blown away by how insanely good they were. They even had a similar texture to chicken wings surprisingly. We ate an entire plate of these for dinner after we put Jackson to bed on Friday night. Big date night for us 😉

This is definitely one of our favourite plant-based meals to have. We’re big dippers so we always have a dill aioli on the side. We usually pair it with a fresh garden salad and crispy baked sweet potato wedges.

While I often get asked if I’m vegetarian or vegan, I am not. But, about 90% of our week we are eating plant-based meals. When we do choose to include animal protein in our diet, it’s always from local, organic, pasture-raised farms where I’ve met the farmer and have seen how wonderful the animals live.

Cauliflower

Is there anything cauliflower can’t do? It can be a tasty rice, delicious pizza, and yes – amazing crispy cauliflower wings. I’d have to say it’s one of my fav vegetables. Cauliflower is actually a member of the cancer-fighting cruciferous family of veggies. This family of nutrient dense vegetables support healthy digestion and detoxification. Cauliflower is also rich in antioxidants and is incredibly anti-inflammatory.

Vegan Aioli

Mmmm, I love me some aioli (on pretty much everything). Aioli is usually mayonnaise seasoned with garlic and a few other ingredients if desired. Instead, I’ve opted to use a soy-free vegan mayo (aka Veganaise) for a healthier alternative.

So let’s get clear on mayonnaise. Most conventional mayos are made with unhealthy fats, sugar, and artificial ingredients. Steer clear of this inflammation causing product at all costs. Vegan mayo not only tastes better, but is free of the bad ingredients typically found in store bought mayonnaise. I use it as a base for so many quick and easy aiolis. This recipe definitely calls for a ranch-style dip, so my Dill Aioli is the perfect companion to the Amazing Crispy Cauliflower Wings. Not a fan of dill? Try my Rosemary Garlic Aioli – it tastes awesome paired with the cauliflower wings too.

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

After years of dealing cystic breakouts, I cleared up my skin for good by fixing my gut, liver and hormones. I went back to school for nutrition and then said seeya later to my job in television. I launched an online nutrition business (before working from home was a thing) so I could help as many women as possible feel confident AF in their own skin, too.
