Broccoli Wings

5 min read

These broccoli wings are out of this world! They’re easy to make, super crispy, and spicy. They’re great with a bowl of brown rice or on their own as an appetizer.

I’m a huge fan of cauliflower wings and the whole thing works just as well with broccoli! My broccoli wings are kind of a vegan version of spicy Korean gochujang chicken wings. We simply can’t get enough of them around here!

What You Need For The Broccoli Wings: 

  • broccoli 
  • all-purpose flour
  • unsweetened almond or soy milk 
  • garlic powder
  • paprika powder
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • panko breadcrumbs 
  • store-bought or homemade gochujang sauce

As always, you can find the full ingredient list and the recipe instructions in a separate, printable recipe box at the end of this post.

Homemade Gochujang Sauce 

You can either use store-bought or homemade gochujang sauce. I easily found pre-made gochujang sauce in our regular grocery store in Montreal in the condiment aisle. However, I know that it can be hard to find sometimes. 

Also be aware that gochujang sauce and gochujang paste are not the same. Gochuang paste is a red chili paste that is used to make gochujang sauce. But it’s super spicy on its own!

If you want to make your own gochujang sauce at home, you need the following ingredients: 

  • gochujang paste 
  • soy sauce
  • rice vinegar
  • garlic
  • fresh ginger 
  • brown sugar 
  • sesame oil
  • water, to thin

How To Make Broccoli Wings 

The preparation of these broccoli wings takes a while, but the steps are very easy! However, they take a while in the oven.

1. STEP: Heat the oven to 350 °F.

2. STEP: Carefully cut the broccoli into bite-sized florets.

3. STEP: In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, the plant-based milk, the water, the garlic power, the paprika powder, the salt, and the black pepper.  Stir until well combined. For a gluten-free version, substitute the all-purpose flour with chickpea flour (also omit the water if using chickpea flour).

4. STEP: Dip the broccoli florets into the batter, so they’re completely coated.

5. STEP: Roll them in the panko breadcrumbs. Omit this step for a gluten-free version. However, they’re way crispier with the panko breadcrumb coating.

6. STEP: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lay the broccoli florets on the baking sheet. Don’t put them on top of each other. Bake for 25 minutes at 350 °F.

7. STEP: Transfer the baked broccoli wings to a bowl. Either combine all of the ingredients for the gochujang sauce in a small bowl or use store-bought gochujang sauce. Pour it over the baked broccoli wings. Evenly coat them from all sides by stirring them a few times.

8. STEP: Put the coated broccoli back on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake again for 20 minutes at 350 °F.

9. STEP: Serve immediately and sprinkle with the green onions and sesame seeds. 

Recipe Notes:

  • For a gluten-free version, you can use chickpea flour instead of all-purpose flour. Also omit the panko breadcrumbs.
  • Immediately serve these broccoli wings. They’re super crispy when they come out of the oven, but unfortunately they will be a lot less crispy when they cool down. So I don’t recommend storing them for later. 
  • You could serve them over brown rice or also just on their own. They also make a great appetizer.
