For the cauliflower wings:

For the Honey Garlic Sauce:

For the Spicy Ranch Dressing:


  1. Make the spicy ranch dipping sauce.  In a small bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, adobo sauce, lemon juice, herbs and seasonings and set aside (or refrigerate) until ready to serve.
  2. To make the cauliflower wings, place the eggs in one bowl and whisk them together.  In another bowl, mix together the panko breadcrumbs, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder and salt/pepper.  Dip the cauliflower florets first in the egg wash, coating completely, and then dredge in the breadcrumb mixture.  Shake off any excess breadcrumbs and place on the wire rack of the air fryer.
  3. NOTE: Depending on the size of your air fryer you may need to do a couple of batches of cauliflower wings.  You want to place them in a single layer on the rack, being careful not overcrowd them so that air can circulate around the wings making them crispy!
  4. To make in the air fry: Place wings in air fryer at 400 degrees for about 6 minutes, flip them over, then continue air-frying for another 6 minutes until golden and crispy.
  5. To make in the oven: Place breaded wings on a baking sheet sprayed with oil (being careful not to overcrowd them) and bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, flipping wings halfway through.
  6. To make the honey garlic sauce: While the cauli wings are in the air fryer, whisk together all the ingredients for the honey garlic sauce and bring the sauce to a boil on the stove.  Reduce the heat and simmer for about 4 to 5 minutes, until the sauce has thickened.
  7. When the cauliflower wings are ready, toss them with the honey garlic sauce until they are completely coated and top with sesame seeds and green onions.  Serve with the spicy ranch dipping sauce and enjoy!
