I have seen variations of this recipe all over the internet and as a lover of wings I figured I had to give it a chance.The idea is that they replace wings for those who don’t eat meat. They were crispy and delicious and I can see how a vegetarian would be all over these little treats. For now I will stick with chicken wings, but I will definitely be making these as a side dish for dinner!
1 head cauliflower
1 cup 1% milk
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (traditionally) but I use Tobasco
Preheat oven to 450 Degrees. Trim the head of cauliflower into appetizer sized bites and set aside. In a bowl stir together milk, flour and garlic powder. Dip each piece of cauliflower into the batter and allow the extra batter to drip off. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes.
Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat, add the hot sauce and stir. Toss cooked cauliflower pieces with the sauce. Put back on cookie sheet and bake for 5 to 7 more minutes in the oven. Remove and serve with a side of Blue Cheese Dressing.
