Cauliflower Hot Wings ? Cauliflower lovers have gotta try this one.⠀
Wash and cut 1 cauliflower head into bite-size florets. Prepare batter:mix dry ingredients: 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (or rice flour for gluten-free), 2 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp paprika, several turns black pepper, pinch of salt (to taste). Mix wet ingredients: 1/2 cup plant milk + 1/2 cup water. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients gradually while mixing to remove any lumps. Dip cauliflower florets into batter one at a time, shaking of any excess. Place on lined baking sheet. Roast at 400F for 20 minutes, flipping half way. While cauliflower is roasting, prepare sauce. Sauce: Whisk together 2 tbsp tamari, 2 tbsp sriracha, 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 2 tbsp water, 2 tbsp maple syrup and 1+1/2 tsp tapioca starch. (Optional: Heat 1 tbsp vegan butter in saucepan until melted. Remove saucepan from stove and whisk sauce into melted butter while saucepan is still hot. Keep whisking until sauce thickens.) For oil-free version, transfer mixed sauce directly to saucepan and whisk while heating until starts to thicken. Dip roasted cauliflower florets into sauce one at a time, using your hands to generously coat each floret. Roast on lined baking sheet at 400F about 30 minutes, flipping half way, until florets start to darken. Enjoy!
