CAULIFIRE WINGS

CAULIFIRE WINGS

Wowwww... do we have a recipe of dreams for you!

Now, if you havn't tried one of the best vegan recipes we have ever done- the Cauliflower buffalo wings recipe... then add that to your 'must cook' list ASAP.

Ever been to New York? Drop into Champs Diner on Meserole St in Brooklyn while you were there? If you did pay a visit to this veritable Mecca of plant-based eating, then we hope to God you indulged in their CauliFIRE wings. Fried cauliflower dipped in spicy angry sauce topped with sesame seeds and chives with a cheeky splash of celery and ginger aioli. THEY’RE LIFE-CHANGING. We’ve had a bash at making our own and have to admit they’re none too shabby: Champs Diner deep fry theirs but we decided to bake ours for a healthier version. Enjoy.

Ingredients

For the cauliflower

  • 60g red miso
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • ½ tbsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tbsp smoked paprika
  • 40g panko breadcrumbs
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 medium cauliflower

For the creamy garlic dip

  • 100g cashew nuts
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • ½ lemon
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 50ml water
  • Parsley leaves for garnish
  • Salt and pepper to taste

To serve

  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • Celery batons for 4 people
  • Carrot batons for 4 people

Equipment

  • Food processor/blender
  • Mixing bowl
  • Baking tray
  • Grater

Method

  1. 1.

    Make your Caulifire marinade: blitz the panko breadcrumbs with a food processor. Put the miso, maple syrup, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, sesame seed oil, cayenne pepper and smoked paprika in a mixing bowl and stir to combine. Add the blitzed panko to the bowl and stir to combine.

  2. 2.

    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.

  3. 3.

    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.

  4. 4.

    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.

  5. 5.

    Time to serve. Take the Caulifire wings out of the oven and plate them up, then sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve immediately with the creamy garlic dip, celery and carrot. Mind. Blown.
