I suppose with the aid of now  i've a component for cauliflower. these are recipes I’ve created wherein cauliflower is the big name: Cauliflower Buffalo Wings, Cauliflower Meat Tacos, Cauliflower Fajitas and Sticky Sesame Cauliflower.

I don’t really take care of raw cauliflower at all, however it receives exceptional delicious or even takes on a “meat-like” high-quality whilst you prepare it in sure ways. Of direction, not in a manner that would fool a meat eater into questioning they’re consuming actual meat, however I wager they won’t be capable of stop eating those BBQ Cauliflower Wings anyway!

The BBQ Cauliflower Wings are first coated in a flour/water/spices/salt batter, then dipped and lined in panko breadcrumbs and baked. add some BBQ sauce, and you've got one of the maximum delicious appetizers or snacks I’ve ever tasted!

begin with a massive head of cauliflower. i really like to reduce the florets into pretty large (however no longer massive) chew sized pieces. I wouldn’t cut them too small. I additionally propose you leave a touch bit of the stem at the cauliflower florets. It looks suitable and it gives you a manage for selecting up and consuming! Plus, less food waste.

After you have got your cauliflower florets cut and geared up, mix the water, flour, spices and salt in a massive bowl and whisk to mix. In a separate, smaller bowl, upload the panko breadcrumbs. Line a huge baking sheet (or two if needed) with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 450 tiers F.

upload the cauliflower to the bowl with the water/flour batter and stir to coat all the florets well. One floret at a time, roll within the panko breadcrumbs, and then area at the baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, turn and bake 10 greater minutes. take away from the oven, and toss the baked florets with about 1 1/2 cups barbeque sauce (the use of a huge bowl). Coat nicely, then go back to the pan and vicinity returned inside the oven to prepare dinner for every other 15 minutes.

Recipe Notes

  1. To make gluten free, use a gluten free flour mix, or almond flour in the batter. You could omit the breadcrumbs, use gluten free breadcrumbs, or try using cornmeal instead.
  2. Panko breadcrumbs work the best for this recipe, but you could substitute another kind of breadcrumbs if desired. Just check the ingredients to make sure they are dairy free. This brand of panko breadcrumbs is accidentally vegan and I can find them at many normal grocery stores and on Amazon.
  3. To store leftovers, keep them in a covered container in the refrigerator. Reheat in the oven until warm, or even in the microwave. 
  4. You can use your favorite store-bought barbecue sauce (check ingredients to ensure vegan) or make my Quick and Easy Vegan Barbecue Sauce. You will need about 18 ounces, which is the average bottle of bbq sauce and how much my recipe makes.
