With the upcoming Super Bowl, consumers are gearing up to enjoy all the staple comfort foods and this alternative take on the classic spicy barbecue chicken wings recipe offers a version that is ideal for vegans and vegetarians alike to enjoy. The dish cleverly substitutes poultry for cauliflower to create a meatless version that is still filled with similar flavors and textures.

The Spicy Pepper Breaded Cauliflower Bites by lifestyle blog Vegan Richa offers a healthy alternative to chicken wings that still achieves the same great taste, but with much more wholesome ingredients. The dish features cauliflower instead of meat, as the vegetable retains a firm and tender texture during frying. The vegetable is then coated in coconut milk, spices, arrowroot starch and bread crumbs. The dish can also be served with a homemade dairy-free cashew ranch sauce for dipping.
