Spicy Cauliflower Wings with Roasted Oat Waffles

Looks and tastes like a take-away treat but full of veggie goodness.


1/4 cup Flahavan’s Rolled Oats
3/4 cup milled seeds
1/4 cup roasted seeds
1 tbsp milled seeds
alfalfa sprouts to serve
1/5 cup oat milk
1 small-medium cauliflower
4/5 cup plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp chili powder
ground black pepper
flaky sea salt
olive oil spray
2 2/3 cups leftover sweet potato (or just cooked potato)
1 tsp Marigold Bouillon
75ml maple syrup
25 ml hot sauce


Preheat the air fryer to 392°F.
Cut the cauliflower into florets.

1. Put the flour, baking powder, 25g milled seeds and spices into a bowl with some salt and pepper. Whisk in 150ml cold water to make a thick batter. Dip the cauliflower florets in to coat them and set aside on a plate. Crush the roasted seeds in a mortar and pestle or with a mini blender to a rough powder and mix with remaining milled seeds and a good pinch of flaky salt. Sprinkle this mix over the coated cauliflower.

2. Spray the florets with olive oil and place in the basket of the air fryer and cook for 15 minutes at 356°F. Cook the cauliflower in two batches.

3. Mash potatoes and mix with bouillon, oats and oat milk. Add mashed potatoes to waffle iron heated to medium and cook for about 10 minutes, until the exterior is golden brown and crispy.

4. Pop the cauliflower back in the air fryer for 5 minutes. Mix the maple syrup and hot sauce and warm in the microwave for 1 minute.

Serve the waffles and wings sprinkled with roasted seeds and drizzled with the warm hot sauce.
