The illustrious publisher of What’s Up is always forwarding me recipes that she would like me to try out. Then she wants to be my “taster” to make sure my recipe is worthy. Well she forwarded me this one, Cauliflower Wings, and I had to try it and put my own spin on it.
1/2 head cauliflower, cut into bite size pieces
1 cup flour
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 TBSP garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt and pepper
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup Frank’s RedHot sauce
1/3 cup butter, melted
Mix butter and Frank’s RedHot sauce together and set aside.
Mix all ingredients except cauliflower together — you want this batter to be the consistency of a light beer batter. Dip cauliflower pieces in batter and place on a greased metal baking pan. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and brush on hot sauce mix. Return to oven and bake for another 15 minutes. Remove from oven a second time and turn cauliflower pieces over with a metal spatula, coat with hot sauce mix again. Return to oven and bake for another 15 minutes.
Serve with ranch dressing. Unbelievable, but the consistency and flavor is just like chicken. This one’s for you, Christa!
