Vegan & Gluten Free!!!
oh and they are
When you want a wings and beer night but you’re a vegetarian/vegan and you have to make gluten free too?! So here is a healthier version of the traditional wings. We baked, well double baked, these babies and they come out soooooo yummy!
We tried a really amazing sauce on them made with Sriracha aka the new Ketchup, and lime. This recipe would be easy enough to change up your spices. I think the next time we should try a honey garlic glazed for those who may find these a little spicy!
- 3/4 cup brown rice flour
- 1/2 tsp curry powder
- 2 tsp garam masala
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk or plain soy milk
- 6-8 Tbsp
- 1 head of cauliflower but into ‘wing’ size pieces. This is really up to you how big you like them.
- 1/4 cup Sriracha sauce
- 2 tsp melted coconut oil
- 2 tablespoon agave (or honey if not vegan)
- juice of half a lime…also add more for your own taste
- 2 tablespoon water if needed to thin out sauce
- Heat the oven to 450F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Wash and cut cauliflower into bite size wing pieces.
- In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, spices, almond milk and water. Whisk it up to mix well. The batter should be like a pancake type batter. Not chunky but not too runny that it won’t stick.
- One by one, immerse the wings into the batter and cover completely. Do a little shake…and shake the cauliflower wing to remove excess. Put onto the parchment lined baking sheet. Spread them out so they won’t run together.
- Once you have dipped all the wings, place into oven for 20-25 minutes.
- While the wings are baking for the first go around, get the sauce ready.
- In another bowl, mix in Sriracha, lime juice, agave or honey and melted coconut oil. Mix up and if too thick, use some water to thin it out.
- Once the wings are baked, take them out and one by one dip them into the sauce. You can use a basting brush too but I think they get coated a little better when you dip.
- Back to the oven they go! Put the wings back in once the sauce is covered them and bake for another 20 minutes.
- While they are baking, we mixed up some dipping sauce. Here is the recipe for that!
- One bunch of cilantro
- juice of one lime
- 2 tsp of agave (or honey)
- 1 avocado
- 3 garlic cloves
We put all these ingredients into a food processor and blended until smooth. You may need a little water if not getting smooth enough.
The wings are best right out of the oven. If you have left overs though, heat them up on a pan in the oven at 350F for 10-15 minutes. They will satisfy anyone’s cravings for wings!
And the green dipping sauce is deeeeelish.
