Healthy Vegan Football Food.....Vegan Buffalo Wings!

Spicy and lip smacking good!  I don't even know if I have actually ever had real buffalo wings.  I think I've only ingested faux buffalo wings made by Morning Star before I became a vegan.  Note that many of the frozen Morning Star Products are NOT vegan.

Cauliflower florets are a brilliant substitute for chicken.  Bring these spicy firecrackers to your next Sunday football party get together, and I bet even the non-vegans will be gobbling them up!

If you desire something a bit heartier, you can try using seitan instead.

But, I prefer the cauliflower route.  Light, healthy, gluten free and soy free.

By using whole grain flour, this makes the recipe gluten free.  If this is not important to you, use any type of flour your little heart desires.


Vegan Buffalo Wings

 Remember, if you use my vegan blue cheese dressing, it does contain tofu, so the dressing would not be soy free.  You can try to make it without the tofu, but I am not sure how this will taste.

1 head cauliflower (cut into florets)
1 c whole grain flour (or flour of your choice)
1 c unsweetened original flavor almond milk (or your choice of vegan milk)
1 tbsp evoo
1/2 c hot wing sauce (I use Frank's Red Hot)

Preheat oven 450.  In a large mixing bowl, combine flour and vegan milk and stir until completely combined.  The consistency should be think.  Add in a hand full of the florets and completely dredge.  Transfer to baking pan and repeat until of the cauliflower is gone.  Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes.  In meantime, combine hot sauce and evoo.  Remove cauliflower from oven and drench the cauliflower completely and return to oven for another 5-7 minutes.  Transfer to a serving dish and serve with blue cheese dressing and celery.
Now that's a bang in your mouth!
