Vegan Sesame Chicken Wings
Vegetarian sesame chicken wings. Start with a store-bought vegetarian chicken substitute, brush them with a Chinese-inspired glaze of hoisin sauce and sesame oil, and cook them until sticky and perfect. Yum!

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp agave nectar or brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • cayenne pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 package gardein vegetarian "chick’n wings"
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 green onion, sliced


In a small bowl, whisk together the garlic, agave nectar or brown sugar, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, cayenne and cornstarch until well combined.

Heat one tablespoon of olive or vegetable oil in a sautee pan over medium heat. Add frozen gardein "chick’n wings" and cook for 4 to 6 minutes until crispy and brown on both sides, being careful not to burn.

Add sauce mixture to the pan and cook until sauce is thick and sticky, and vegetarian chicken wings are well coated.

To serve, garnish with sesame seeds and green onion.

Makes four servings of vegetarian and vegan sesame "chicken" wings.
