Hi guys, I’m super excited to show you guys my version of the very popular cauliflower wings with my very own Korean twist. As many of you may know, I am originally from Korea and I grew up eating Korean Yangnyum Chicken (translation = seasoned chicken), which is basically fried chicken covered in spicy “yangnyum” sauce. There are thousands of Korean chicken shops that specialise in this type of chicken, and it used to be one of my favourite things to eat. Two of my aunt’s even owned a chicken shop when I was young and every time I’d go over there, I’d have a bunch of fried chicken! Thankfully I no longer eat chicken, but that doesn’t mean we can’t put our very own vegan twist to this recipe. Most of the delicious flavour comes from the sauce anyway!
The sauce pretty much tastes almost exactly like how I remember it. I made it as simple as possible so that you won’t have to go around looking for a million and one ingredients.
These wings were super tasty, but i did find them to be a tad salty and quite full of flavour, so I prefer to eat them with rice. I also put them in a wrap once with a tortilla and it was pretty damn good lol.
