One piece of advice: don’t say these spicy cauliflower buffalo chunks are like chicken wings (which they are), cause you’ll piss of the hardcore carnivores. One of my friends called it blasphemous to compare cauliflower to chicken.
This is a great snack for getting together with the guys and watching a game. Serve them in a bucket and add some of your favorite dips.
I believe in food that’s good and easy to make but I also prefer homemade over store bought dips. I’m going to add two recipes for (really) hot sauce and vegan garlic mayonnaise really soon, but if you don’t wanna wait for those recipes or don’t have time, just buy some (vegan) dips in the store.
Cauliflowers Buffalo Chunks
These Cauliflower Buffalo Chunks are a great snack for getting together with the guys and watching a game. Serve them in a bucket and add some of your favorite dips.
- 1 medium size cauliflower
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 cup (brown rice) flower
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup (flavorless) coconut oil
- 1/2 bottle tabasco or other (homemade) hot sauce
- 1/4 tsp cayenne powder
- 1 tbsp paprika powder
- 1 clove garlic chopped
- 1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce not all versions are vegan!
- 1 pinch salt
Mix all the ingredients except into a batter and put it to the side. Preheat the oven at 225 C (450 F).
Chop the cauliflower into pieces. They have to be just big enough to take a couple of bite out of. Use a brush to coat the chunks in the batter of just dip them in. (If you dip them make sure you don't use too much batter per chunk).
Put a baking sheet on a baking tray and place the chunks onto it. Put it in the over for 15-20 mins until the outside of the pieces is no longer moist. In the mean while, prepare the buffalo sauce.
Take the cauliflower pieces out of the oven and brush them up the with the buffalo sauce. Put them back in the oven for about 5 to 8 minutes. They have to be darkred to brown and crispy on the outside.
- Add all the ingredients for the buffalo sauce to a food processor until smooth. Move the mixture to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat as soon as you see little bubbles forming at the sides of the pan.
