Vegan Cauliflower "Chicken"

READY IN: 50mins




  • Preheat oil for frying in a large dutch oven or fryer. It should be around 350 degrees F.
  • In another bowl combine the ground flax seed with 1/4 cup of water.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl combine the flour, salt, cayenne pepper, white pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, Old Bay, and nutritional yeast.
  • Into the bowl with the flax “egg” add the hot sauce and dijon mustard and whisk until creamy.
  • Use one hand to carefully dip a cauliflower floret into the wet mixture, then drop it into the flour mixture and use your other dry hand to coat it completely.
  • Dip it back into the flax mixture, and again into the dry mixture (remember to keep one hand for wet dredging and the other for dry).
  • Carefully lower the twice coated cauliflower into the hot oil. Repeat with remaining cauliflower until you can’t fit any more into the pot.
  • Cook for about 4-5 minutes, until the pieces are golden.
  • Transfer fried cauliflower to a large plate covered with paper towel to absorb excess oil.
  • Continue to cook the remaining cauliflower.
  • Serve hot.
