1 cup gluten-free flour
1 head broccoli, chopped into florets
3 Tbsp. hot sauce
2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
Dash chili powder
Dash paprika
Dash cumin
Pink salt and black pepper, to taste
1 cup filtered water

Avocado Sour Cream

1 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1/2 avocado
1 lemon, juiced and zested
Pinch pink salt
Filtered water

Broccoli Slaw

Hampton Creek Chipotle Just Mayo Spread
Shredded broccoli
Shredded carrots
Shredded purple cabbage


Tortillas or wraps, toasted or heated, if desired
Cilantro, for garnish
Fresh lime wedges
Hot sauce, if desired


  1. First, prepare sour cream. In a high-speed blender, combine all ingredients and process until smooth, adjusting amount of water as needed to blend. Keep in fridge until ready to use.
  2. Prepare broccoli wings. Preheat oven to 445 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, combine all wing ingredients except for broccoli. The texture will be thick like pancake batter. Dip each floret into batter, tapping off excess on side of bowl. Place on prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping once halfway through baking.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare broccoli slaw. In a large bowl, combine shredded vegetables with a spoonful of chipotle mayo.
  6. To assemble tacos, add about 1/4 cup of slaw, 3-4 broccoli wings and cilantro. Drizzle with avocado sour cream and, if desired, add a few drops of hot sauce and a squeeze of lime.
