  • 1/2 cup Buffalo sauce (vegan) 
  • 2 Tbsp. Red wine vinegar

  • 1 Tbsp. Coconut sugar (or cane sugar) 
  • 1/2 Lime, juiced 
  • 1 Garlic clove, minced

Other: 

  • 1/2 cup Brown rice flour 
  • 1/2 cup All-purpose flour 
  • 1/2 tsp. Black pepper 
  • 2 Tbsp. Vegan butter 
  • Green onions, thinly sliced, optional, to serve 
  • Vegan ranch, optional, to serve 

DIRECTIONS:

Note: The following directions will be given for stand mixer and without on each step. 

  1. Using a stand mixer, mix together the vital wheat gluten, brown rice flour, nutritional yeast, onion powder, dried thyme, dried basil, dried oregano, smoked paprika, coriander, Old Bay, garlic powder, white pepper and salt with a paddle attachment on low speed until well mixed. If no stand mixer, mix with a wooden spoon till well blended. 
  2. While mixer runs on low, add in 1/2 cup warm water and 2 tablespoons liquid aminos. If using bowl, continue stirring with wooden spoon while adding water and aminos. 
  3. Change the paddle for the dough hook on stand mixer if using. 
  4. Run the dough hook on low for 10 minutes to knead the dough, add in another 2 tablespoons of warm water, and run on low for another 10 minutes. If not using a stand mixer, once well mixed with a wooden spoon, pour the mixture onto a flour-lined surface. Knead the dough with hands for about 8–10 minutes until it becomes elastic-like and can be pulled apart without breaking. 
  5. Once done with mixer or kneading, form into 10–12 small wings.
  6. In a large soup pot, bring the 8 cups of broth and 3 garlic cloves to a boil over medium-high heat. 
  7. Add the wings to the boiling broth and reduce heat to medium. Simmer for 60 minutes until wings double in size. 
  8. While the wings cook, mix together all ingredients for the Thai Buffalo sauce in a small bowl. Additionally, in a shallow bowl or plate, mix 1/2 cup brown rice flour, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, and 1 teaspoon black pepper. 
  9. Once wings are done cooking, drained and cooled for a few minutes, dredge in the flour/pepper mixture until well coated. Set on a plate.
  10.   Add 2 tablespoons vegan butter to a large frying pan. When the butter starts to pop, dip the dredged wing in the Thai Buffalo sauce and lay on the pan. Repeat until all wings are complete. Flip after 1–2 minutes when the wings start to brown. I like a little burn on my wings as it adds a nice smoky char. Once browned on both sides, set on paper-towel-lined plate.
  11.  Using a pastry brush or spoon, brush the rest of the Buffalo sauce on the wings. Serve and enjoy!

Brown Sugar BBQ Wings by Spices in my DNA

Brown sugar adds a classic sweetness to traditional BBQ wings. Because this recipe calls for ketchup as the base, the seasonings can be easily altered to your liking. The wings are made extra hot and crunchy from the oven, so no extra oil here!

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 40 minutes

Serves: 4

Brown Sugar BBQ Wings

INGREDIENTS:

For the wings: 

  • 2 lbs. Sprouts Butcher Shop chicken wings 
  • 1 tsp. Salt 
  • 2 tsp. Baking powder 
  • Nonstick cooking spray 

Brown Sugar BBQ Wings1For the sauce: 

  • 1 1/2 cups Sprouts Ketchup 
  • 1/2 cup Sprouts Light Brown Sugar, loosely packed 
  • 1/4 cup Water 
  • 1 Tbsp. Molasses 
  • 1 Tbsp. Honey 
  • 2 Tbsp. Apple cider vinegar 
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce 
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard 
  • 1 tsp. Paprika
  • 1 tsp. Garlic powder 
  • 1 tsp. Onion powder 
  • 1/2 tsp. Sprouts Dry Mustard 
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt 
  • 1/2 tsp. Pepper

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Pat wings dry with paper towels. Place wings in a large, non-reactive glass or plastic bowl. Add the salt and toss to coat. Sprinkle the baking powder over the wings and toss again to coat. Place in the fridge for at least 4 hours or up to overnight. (This step helps the wings get super crispy when they’re baked!) 
  2. Preheat oven to 450℉. Spray a large, rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray. Set aside. Evenly layer the wings on the baking sheet, and bake for 20 minutes, then flip them, and bake for another 15–20 minutes or until golden and crispy. 
  3. While wings are baking, in a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients for the BBQ sauce. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper if desired. 
  4. When wings are finished baking, add to a large bowl along with ½–¾ cup (or desired amount) of BBQ sauce and toss to coat! The amount is totally up to you and how saucy you want them! (You will have extra sauce leftover for another use.) Serve immediately with extra BBQ sauce and enjoy.
