As many of you know, cauliflower is my favorite vegetable. I have eaten it many ways: baked, broiled, boiled and fried. However, I have never tried it battered and tossed with a hot sauce. These are a very nice alternative to chicken wings on a football game party. So while the carnivores, like my fiancé, are chowing down on some wings, I can eat my vegan/vegetarian version and still enjoy the flavor of a game day. The original recipe comes from http://tastykitchen.com/blog/2012/12/cauliflower-buffalo-wings/ and I think she did a great job making a classic dish into a healthy snack.
- 1 head of Cauliflower, cut into florets
- 1 cup Almond Milk
- 3/4 cup Flour
- 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder
- 1 tablespoon Butter or Margarine
- 1/2 – 1 cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (the more spicy you want it, add more hot sauce)
- Note: If you make the sauce too spicy, add more melted butter
- Optional: Blue Cheese or Ranch Dressing
Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 450 F.
Step 2: Cut cauliflower into florets.
Step 3: In a medium-sized bowl stir together almond milk, flour and garlic powder.
Step 4: Toss cauliflower into the batter. Shake off excess batter. Place cauliflower on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 18 minutes.
Step 5: Melt butter/margarine in a large bowl. Mix melted butter and hot sauce together.
Step 6: Toss cauliflower pieces with sauce until well coated.
Optional: Serve with blue cheese or ranch dressing.
Step 7: Eat and Enjoy!
