Food Stuff, Part 2: Cauliflower Plant-Based Hot Wings

If I didn’t mention it in most conversations, didn’t Blog about it, and didn’t post about it on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, you probably wouldn’t even know that I’m living a plant-based lifestyle.

“Plant-based” is the cool way to say you’re “vegetarian.”

And when I say I’m “plant-based”, I mean …wait. Ya know what I hate about most Blogs with a recipe? Those Blog posts usually have a thousand words before they get to the recipe. Not me. I’m getting right to the point.

Found a recipe for cauliflower hot wings. I modified some things so they’d be easier to make (and taste better). Here’s how to make ’em. You’ll love them. My non-plant-based family (including my teenage son) like these.

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp garlic sea salt
  • 3 TBS almond milk
  • 1/2 cup hot wing or buffalo sauce
  • more vegetable oil

Follow these steps…

  1. Cut the cauliflower into pieces about the size of chicken wings
  2. Drizzle enough vegetable oil into a mixing bowl and shake around (so cauliflower is is covered)
  3. Sprinkle some flour onto the cauliflower pieces (in a bowl) and shake ’em around (cover with cling wrap to avoid flour going all over your damn kitchen)
  4. Sprinkle some more flour and shake ’em around
  5. Sprinkle some more flour (the rest of it) and shake ’em around.

  1. Drizzle almond milk into the bowl of flour-covered cauliflower and shake it around
  2. Pour onto a baking sheet (line with parchment paper or foil)
  3. Cook at 425 degrees for 20 minutes
  4. After 20 minutes, take it out of the oven and move the cauliflower to a bowl
  5. Drizzle with some hot wing sauce and shake around
  6. Drizzle with some more hot wing sauce and shake around
  7. Drizzle with the rest of the hot wing sauce and shake around
  8. Dump everything back onto the baking sheet and put back into the oven
  9. Bake for 20 minutes
  10. Broil for 5 minutes at the end.

Eat ’em. Dip them in ranch dressing (or bleu cheese if  you’re a freak).

Amaze your friends.

Feel good you’re plant-based like me.

Trust me. These are good.
