I have a serious infatuation with Buffalo Wing… The hotter the better, and keep them and the beer coming… Sooooo along come Lents again… I’m not having any meat or dairy… So really Pizza and Buffalo Wings are on my mind all day everyday. As you’re reading this, I’m somewhere daydreaming about what pizza I’m eating on Easter 🙂 I’m not into the Soy/Faux Cheese thing so I’m not going to worry about pizza, but I did find via interest and blog reading that cauliflower is a good buffalo wing alternative. Many of them used greek yogurt or almond milk… Again I’m not into the replacement dairy thing, I’d rather just not have it. So I made them yesterday, and then again today… I’m obsessed, and my meat loving husband is actually requesting them now 🙂 Win, Win… So my loyal followers… Here you go!
- 1 Head of Cauliflower
- 1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 TBSP Kosher Salt
- 1 TBSP Coarsely Ground Black Pepper
- 5 Cloves of Coarsely Chopped Garlic
- 1/2 Cup Flour ( You can use a Gluten Free Flour)
- 3/4 Cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
Pre heat your oven to 450 degrees. Cut your Cauliflower into florets and put into a mixing bowl. Add the Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Kosher Salt, Coarsely Ground Black Pepper and Coarsely Chopped Garlic (DO NOT USE Minced Garlic in a Jar, it’s gross). Mix until all pieces are covered, then add in the flour and mix well.
Then lay them onto a baking pan. I suggest everyone gets a Silpat Mat for all their cooking and baking needs, it makes clean up easy and you don’t need to use any chemical based products to prevent sticking. Bake for 20-25 Minutes. I like to flip them half way through cooking.
Remove from the oven and add your Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, or other Hot Sauce (if you don’t like the best :)). Put back into the oven for 5 Minutes. Then, serve.
I’m personally not a wing dunker, so giving up dairy, I didn’t need a replacement Blue Cheese or Ranch Dressing. But I know that there are many Vegan options for dressings, I just can’t recommend one since I don’t like the dairy or dairy free options. If you are a meat eater and would like to try my original post for Buffalo Wings here is the recipe to try…
