Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower
A few days ago my friend sent me a recipe for cauliflower wings.🌝🌿 I did not follow the recipe to the T.... which is probably why they don't look like the pinterest pictures. None the less... it was delicious. Can't complain 😄
For vegans, finding savory foods that are similar in comfort value to old meat-eater favorites like buffalo wings can be hard. I know this is one of the things that was a struggle for me originally. Experimenting with cauliflower.... tempeh.... tofu etc is necessary in combating the boring vegan food stereotype.
Get creative! There are delicious foods out there which are a lot easier to create than you'd think!
1 cup almond milk
1 cup white or whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon garlic powder pepper to taste
1 tablespoon oil
1 head of cauliflower (chopped into bite size pieces)
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup buffalo sauce
4 tbsp Earth Balance vegan butter
1/2 cup Follow Your Heart vegan blue cheese
2 tbsp chopped green onion
-Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Cut cauliflower into bite sized pieces discarding the core.
Combine almond milk, flour, garlic powder, pepper and olive oil in a large bowl. Create a separate bowl with the Panko. Dip the pieces in the batter (let any excess drip off), then coat in Panko, place on a foil lined pan and bake 15 minutes.
-Melt buffalo sauce with butter on the stove or in the microwave. (optional) Remove from the oven and gently toss in the buffalo sauce. Generously coat the cauliflower, but don't soak. Place back on the pan and bake an additional 5-10 minutes or until cauliflower is tender crisp.
-Top with vegan Follow Your Heart blue cheese dressing and green onion and serve with carrots and celery.
It's easy. It's tasty. It's cauliflower. You eat it and you're happy you did.
