Foodie Friday : Buffalo cauliflower

Welcome to WEST's first installment of Foodie Friday. Curious as to what WESTies are making outside the craft room? Step into Caitlin (Real Swanky)'s tiny, wood-paneled kitchen to see what's cooking.

A vegan alternative to Buffalo wings, I've made up these spicy coated cauliflower bits that are sure to kick you in the mouth. Make these with chickpea flour, or another flour alternative for a gluten-free version.


Batter base:
1 cup water or milk alternative
1 cup flour or flour alternative

1 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp pink Himalayan salt
3/4 tsp garlic powder 

1 head of cauliflower, chopped into two-bite pieces.

3/4 cup Frank's Red Hot sauce, or similar buffalo-style sauce
2 tbsp margarine (melt first)

-Preheat oven to 450F. Spray or grease a glass baking dish (9x13 or so will do).

-Create your batter by combining all dry ingredients first, then add in the water. 

-Coat your cauliflower pieces in the batter and place in baking dish.

-Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and pour your sauce over the pieces, roll about to coat evenly. Bake for another 5 minutes. Once ready, let cool for 5-10 minutes.

-Great with a side of dip, carrot sticks and celery, on a bed of rice, or alongside curried noodles/quinoa.
