Spicy Cauliflower Wings or just an attempt to carry on normally in these stormy times. I never thought it would really degenerate like this with Corona. In the beginning, it was a virus that crippled China, and then it evolved at breakneck speed into something very threatening. Admittedly, it doesn’t change much for me personally because I work from home most of the time. However, for many people it looks quite different at the moment. I’m just thinking of all the nurses and staff in hospitals. If I’m completely honest, I also laughed at Corona in the beginning and thought to myself that it can’t be that bad. But if we think about how many people toil day and night for the health of others, then one can also make oneself comfortable at home at the moment. Thank you to the inventors of the Internet, because thanks to them we can also communicate with each other so wonderfully. Maybe you just use it as a great opportunity to try out this wonderful new recipe to try out?
Spicy Cauliflower Wings
Right now I’m reminiscing about a vacation in Texas, the land of trucks and fried food. Once I ordered (at that time I still ate meat) a basket of Chicken Wings . The food came and at first I thought it was the portion for the whole table. Unfortunately wrong thought, it was solely my portion and I was not sure whether to laugh or cry. At the half of the portion was for me layer in the shaft and I felt afterwards anything but good. I would certainly not have this problem with today’s Wings because I can promise you one thing, you don’t have to count the calories in this dish. Cauliflower is extremely low in calories and the seasoning comes solely from the spices used.
First the Cauliflower florets are coated with a baking dough, made of Vegetable milk , garlic granules, salt, chili, flour, starch, baking powder and oil. Then they go into the oven and bake. Meanwhile, prepare the hot sauce using oil, cayenne, pepper, maple syrup, paprika, sage, garlic granules, vinegar and a dash of water. The pre-baked Wings soak up the sauce really nicely and then go back into the oven.
As a dip I make a quick yogurt sauce to it consisting of coconut yogurt, lemon juice, Maple syrup, salt, pepper and coriander. I find that fits just wonderfully to the sharpness of the wings.
Vegan chicken wings, for real?
Sure, there’s also the option of buying ready-made vegan chicken wings at the supermarket and just throwing them in the oven. However, I find the cauliflower Wings much more interesting because they are completely natural and do not require any industrial processing. An ordinary, simple cauliflower is masterfully transformed into a hearty, delicious and healthy Dish for the whole family. Cauliflower is:
- rich in dietary fiber
- Vitamin C
- B vitamins
- very low in calories with 25 calories per 100g
If you don’t feel like wings today, there are many other great things you can do with cauliflower. Cauliflower rice make it yourself with Stir-Fry and Cashew Butter Tof u, Shawarma Bowl with Cauliflower , Creamy Korma Curry, easy Cauliflower Curry .
