Cauliflower “hot wing” 

My husband is watching football and I am sitting here starving.  If you have followed me you know I recently went vegan.  I don’t watch football but I am not against the snacks that come with it.  Before my vegan venture I didn’t eat a lot of meat anyway but today I missed hotwings. With not feeling well and not a lot of food in the house I needed to come up with something that also helped with my meat craving which is the first one I have had. I saw someone else post about cauliflower wings so took a stab at it.  I had changed some things and added Wildtree products and they turned out amazing.  I will tell you they really made my craving go away.  My husband said they are good but don’t taste like wings but I beg to differ.  

Cauliflower wings 

Prep time 10 minutes cook time 45 minutes 

Ingredients needed 

1 1/2 cups Flour-I used whole wheat flour 

One head of cauliflower 

1 cup Hot sauce 

1 tblsp of earth balance butter 

1/2 cup Almond milk 

1/2 water 

1 tsp Wildtree BBQ sea salt 

1 tsp Wildtree onion blend 

1 tsp Wildtree smokey Grapeseed oil 

Preheat over to 450 

Mix 

Flour,  water and almond milk in a mixing bowl.  Mix until no lumps are visible

Rinse and cut your cauliflower into but size peices

Add your cauliflower to your batter mix and wish until fully coated.  Add oil to pan and coat then add cauliflower. Make sure to shake off excess batter.  
Bake for 25 minutes 

While your wings are cooking get your sauce ready.  

Add hot sauce and butter to pan on low and stir.  I used a garlic hot sauce but you can use bbq or whatever other sauce you like.  

When the cauliflower is done pull out and coat with sauce.  Once coated well add Wildtree onion blend and bbq sea salt.  Bake another 20 minutes.  

Add ranch or other condiment when finished.  I thought they turned out very filling and did taste very similar to wings.  Hope you guys enjoy.  I did make these a vegan version and now plan to make these for super bowl parties I attend.  Remember order Wildtree products here they add so much flavor to your meals.
