A recent conversation went a little like this:
Me: “So, I’m going to make you some chicken wings tonight.”
Husband: “Um, do you know how?”
Me: “Well, actually they are faux chicken wings.”
Husband: “I knew it.”
Using a fryer or preparing anything that once breathed isn’t really my specialty, so I’ve been excited to try these cauliflower bites in wing sauce. I love chicken wings (when someone else makes them), so I figured this healthy version might be easy and yummy.
To make these all you need is:
Cauliflower (cut into bite-sized pieces)
1 cup Flour
1 cup Water
1 tsp Garlic powder
Your favorite wing sauce
Heat oven to 450 degrees
In a bowl, mix together your flour, water and garlic powder to make a batter.
Dip your cauliflower pieces in the batter so they are completely covered. Place pieces on a lightly greased cookie tray or baking pan.
Cook for 10 minutes or until batter is slightly hardened. Take out and flip pieces over and cook for additional 8-10 minutes. You want the outside crispy and the inside tender.
Take out and coat each piece in your favorite wing sauce using a pastry brush. The flavor of the wing sauce is key here so make sure it’s a good one. Many wing restaurants sell their sauce by the jar, so it’s worth it to get your favorite. You can also pour your sauce into a zip lock bag, add your cauliflower pieces into it, seal and shake.
Place your coated pieces back on your baking tray and cook for another 8 minutes or until lightly brown.
Remove from oven and let cool.
Serve with celery and ranch or bleu cheese and see if anyone notices that they aren’t really chicken!
