This week’s recipe for buffalo cauliflower wingz is a great meatless option. This dish is easy to prepare whether you are new in the kitchen or a seasoned pro.
This recipe makes about 4 servings and the preparation time is about 30 minutes.
1 head caulflower, separated into florets
1 cup gluten-free flour mix (with rice flour, which gives you that crisp)
1 cup non-dairy milk or water
2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup hot sauce (tessamae’s buffalo sauce from Walmart is delicious! If cauliflower is large, double to 2 cups + double butter)
1 tablespoon plant-based butter
Oil for fryer or a sheet pan lined with parchment paper for baking
*Optional garnish: cilantro, parsley, vegan blue cheeze crumbles, shredded vegan parmesan.
To Prepare Your Buffalo Cauliflower Wingz
1) Place butter and hot sauce in a sauce pan and allow both to melt together. Once it’s warm enough and you see the butter melting, turn off heat and swirl (or whisk) the butter into the hot sauce. Set aside – to cool.
2) Mix all spices, flour, and liquid, and whisk until a pancake-like consistency. Dip florets, then place in hot oil. Fry until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel.
3) Once cauliflower is done, place in a deep dish bowl (don’t crowd the bowl) and pour the Buffalo sauce, starting with only 1/4 cup, around the perimeter of the bowl while gently tossing. Serve immediately with vegan ranch.
