Crispy Golden Chilli Garlic Cauli Wings

Crispy Golden Chilli Garlic Cauli Wings

These vegan cauli wings are baked and not fried but still have an insanely crispy and crunchy golden outer crust.  They are mixed with the perfect spicy, sticky, sweet, and garlicky sauce made with, of course, my fav hot sauce, Linghams, and other simple store cupboard ingredients. 

Another super easy veganuary one for you peeps.  Got that cauliflower lurking in the back of the fridge?  You need to try this one. I actually cannot believe the hubby said he preferred them to chicken wings!
