These Vegan Deep Fried Broccoli Wings are such an easy vegan recipe that both kids and adults will love for sure.
I think it’s one of the best broccoli recipes I’ve made so far. So crispy and gets a broccoli wings texture aka vegan fried ‘chicken’. Beer-Battered, crispy, delicious and SO easy to make.
You slices the broccoli in pieces or bouquets. Mix the batter ingredients. I added beer in my batter with flour, salt and my favorite spice: harissa. I also added some paprika because of the taste and the red/orange color! But omit the beer and add plant milk instead for a kid-friendly option.
The broccoli bites are so easy to work with and the oil makes them even more crispy. Just adjust the amount of oil, it’s not necessary to fill the whole pot. Deep fry the pieces in a few seconds until crispy and golden. Mmmm.

Vegan Deep Fried Broccoli
Your best recipe for vegan deep fried broccoli bites – aka vegan fried 'chicken'. Easy crispy recipe with beer, batter and delicious healthy avocado dip. Get the full recipe here:
- 1 Broccoli, washed
- 300 ml. neutral oil (around 1/3 of 1 liter)
- 150g. Flour of your choice
- 1 teaspoon Paprika
- 1-2 teaspoon Harrissa (or other red spices)
- 1 Beer (33 cl.)
- Drizzle with salt and pepper
Wash the broccoli and cut into small pieces or bouquets.
In a bowl add flour, paprika, harrissa, salt, pepper and beer. Whisk the batter until smooth. (The mixture needs to be a little thick.)
Heat oil in a small pot (use a smaller pot for a little use of oil.)
Dip the broccoli pieces in the batter. Put them in the deep fried oil well coated with batter. When the oil gets super hot fry the broccoli bites in batches 3 minutes each. Turn them once until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
Serve the broccoli bites with fresh cold, mixed avocado dipping. Enjoy!
As I said, beer can be omitted. But I can really recommend adding some beer to the batter. It gives the batter so much texture! It gets even more crispy and highlight the rich tastes of sweet and sour from both the beer and the broccoli.
Since alcohol evaporates at a much faster rate compared with water, you can’t taste the beer in this recipes. It just gives the bites a more crispy texture.
Fried broccoli + the perfect avocado dipping:
You never go wrong with this avocado dip. I know I’ve been making it a lot, but it’s also insanely good. Add the dipping to almost every kind of vegetables, stews, salads, starters and it gives the dish an extra touch. If you make this I will guarantee every person at the table will love it. It’s only made with 5 ingredients: 1 glove of garlic, 1 avocado, 2 tablespoon of olive oil, salt and pepper. Go find my favorite, primary avocado dip recipe here.
You can easily use ingredients you already have in the kitchen and mix with your favorite spices or vegetables. If you have some leftover of spinach, kale, basil or thyme – then add into the mix too! Dips, spreads and pestos are so easy to make because you can always adjust the options of ingredients.
