I found this recipe one night while surfing the net and thought I'd give it a go. I can't say that I'm vegan (even though you have probably noticed most of my recipe post are vegan) but I do like eating health. I give myself a cheat day once a week and usually those meals involve meat and dairy, sometimes at the same time. One thing that is for sure is that I have a deep love for spicy chicken wings and this might just be the healthier version I have been looking for...
1 Cauliflower, break bite-size pieces (half is good for one person)
1/2 cup Quinoa flour (original recipe called for garbanzo bean flour)
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon melted butter (or butter substitute for my vegan friends)
2/3 cup hot sauce
Preheat oven to 450ºF. Next combine flour, water, garlic powder, and salt in a bowl. Whisk together until smooth. This is your batter!
Toss the cauliflower into the batter until they are completely coated and place the battered cauliflower on a greased, nonstick baking sheet. When the oven is ready bake for 8 minutes, toss and then bake for another 8 minutes.
While that is baking you can combine the melted butter and hot sauce into a bowl and mix it together. When the battered cauliflower is done, remove it from the oven and gently toss it in the hot sauce mixture. Place fully coated cauliflower back on the baking sheet, if there is any left over hot sauce in the bowl I like to drizzle it over the baking sheet. Put the baking sheet back in the over and cook for 25 minutes until it becomes crispy.
