Vegan Cauliflower Buffalo Wings
Vegan Cauliflower Buffalo Wings (Another shot for you)

Ingredients (Batter):

  • 1 Medium head of Cauliflower
  • 1/2 Cup Garbanzo Bean Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1 TSP Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 TSP Sea Salt
  • 1 TSP Baking Powder (an addition I learned from my new @nomyourself cookbook)

Ingredients (Hot Sauce Mixture)

  • 1 TSP Melted Earth Balance Buttery Spread
  • 2/3 Cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce

Directions:

  1. Mix together the batter (except cauliflower)
  2. Toss the cauliflower in the batter until well covered
  3. Place battered cauliflower on non-stick foil (with some spray added) or use parchment paper and be glad you did πŸ˜‰
  4. Bake at 450Β°F for 15-20 minutes, turning half way through (You can also spray the tops of them with oil prior to baking to get a crispier wing)
  5. Remove from the oven and toss in the Hot Sauce Mixture, which is pretty self explanatory πŸ˜‰
  6. Bake for 25 more minutes (or until nice and crispy). You could turn on the broiler at the end to crisp them more, but be sure you watch them! They scorch fast!

Ingredients: Vegan Ranch Sauce

  • ~1/2 Cup Veganaise (more or less to taste or depending on what you want the yield to be)
  • A few TBSP nut milk of choice (soy, almond, cashew)(more or less to taste)
  • 1 TSP (more or less to taste) Garlic Powder
  • 1 TSP (more or less to taste) Onion Powder
  • 1/2 TSP Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 TSP Dried Parsley

Directions:

  1. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly.
  2. Add more veganaise or milk depending on your desired consistency. This isn’t an exact science of a recipe. You can add more or less of everything depending on what you want the finished product to look and taste like πŸ™‚

ENJOY!

All the best,
