The other day I stumbled across a post that once gave me a big scare. Salmonella, Campylobacter and particularly dangerous multi-resistant germs are now found on every second supermarket chicken and on 9 out of 10 turkeys? According to the Robert Koch Institute, chicken and turkey meat should only be prepared with gloves. One more reason to perhaps opt for a different form of food for once. Cauliflower Wings instead of chicken wings and without any unwanted germs, viruses and the harmful and vascular-clogging LDL cholesterol. Enough is enough, let’s take a look together at how the vegetable wings are made.

First Cauliflower Coat the florets with a baking dough, which consists of Vegetable milk , starch, salt, baking powder and rice wine vinegar. Put them on a baking tray, put them in the oven and bake them. Meanwhile, we prepare the sweet and sour sauce, from orange juice, tamari, maple syrup, tomato puree, garlic and Bird Eye chili. The sauce is thickened with part of the batter. Stir in, bring to the boil briefly, wait for the sauce to thicken, done!

The pre-baked Wing s soak up the fruity, sweet and sour sauce really nicely and then go back into the oven. I serve the Wings in a lettuce leaf together with rice. For me, it’s the perfect light meal for warm days.

Cauliflower wings instead of chicken wings, yes!

One more reason to once again Cauliflower head and admire its beauty. As I said, the advantage to “conventional” chicken wings is that the vegetable version is filling, but without any harmful ingredients. You can save the gloves for the preparation, too, unless you work in a restaurant.

TIP: If you like, you can also deep fry the wings. Either an Airfryer or the classic method with hot oil is suitable for this. With the Airfryer, simply prepare according to the manufacturer’s instructions. For the classic method, heat 500ml of oil, test with a wooden spoon if the oil is hot enough. When bubbles form on the stem, that’s it. Add cauliflower piece by piece to the hot oil and fry for 2-3 minutes. Work carefully, the oil is very hot and can cause burns.

For those who have a Cauliflower at home, but would like to do something different with it, I recommend the Spicy Wings , Cauliflower Rice make it yourself with Stir-fry and cashew butter tofu, Shawarma Bowl with cauliflower or Creamy Korma Curry .

Ideal accompaniment is rice, quinoa, amaranth and crisp fresh salad leaves.
