CAULIFIRE WINGS

CAULIFIRE WINGS
CAULIFIRE WINGS

We were in NYC a couple of weeks ago for some media work. When were there we met our pal Nat for some lunch. We took him to Champs diner in Brooklyn and he was extremely impressed! Their Caulifire wings were delightful so we decided to have a crack at making some ourselves. They deep fried theirs but we decided to bake ours because it’s healthier and it won’t stink your house out!

For the Cauliflower

  • 60g red miso

    Now, prepare the cauliflower | Remove the leaves from the cauliflower and break the head into florets - not too big, not too small - ideally the size of small chicken wings | Put the cauliflower florets in the bowl of marinade and toss to combine - make sure the florets are really well covered in the sauce | Transfer the florets to the baking tray and spray with cooking spray | Put the tray in the oven and roast for 35-40 minutes, turning halfway through, spraying more cooking spray


    While the Caulifire Wings are roasting, make the creamy garlic dip | Grate the garlic clove Finely slice the parsley leaves | Put the cashews, garlic, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup and water in the blender | Squeeze the lemon juice into the blender and blitz until smooth | Add more water to achieve a smoother consistency | Transfer the sauce to a bowl and sprinkle over a little chopped parsley | Taste and season to perfection with salt and pepper


    Time to serve | Take the Caulifire Wings out of the oven and plate them up, sprinkle with sesame seeds | Serve immediately with the Creamy Garlic Dip, celery and carrot
