Healthy Recipe Makeover: Buffalo Cauliflower "Wings"

IMG_2116
















I’m not a huge football fan, especially when it’s not the Broncos. However, I do like to watch the Super Bowl (AKA the commercials and the half-time show!) AND I absolutely LOVE making yummy food to munch on during the game!

This year we stayed home – just the four of us, but the hubby and I still wanted good Super Bowl food! He loves the Buffalo Cauliflower wings that I’ve made before, so he requested those with some chili.

I decided to try a little bit of a batter on the Cauliflower this time and it absolutely worked! Usually, I just roast the cauliflower with olive oil s & p, and then toss them in some wing sauce, which you can totally do if you’re short on time!

This time I made a little batter.

Here’s how I made it:

2/3 cup garbanzo bean flour

Approx. ½ a bottle of gluten removed beer

2 Tbs. tomato paste

Garlic powder

Smoked paprika

Threw all of these ingredients in the processer and blended. Then, tossed them with the Cauliflower and roasted at 450 for about 20 minutes. Then, I tossed them with the wing sauce! Super easy and totally satisfied my craving for something super hot and spicy!

I totally messed up with the kids, though! I got so excited, I forgot to hold some back to toss with some bbq sauce instead of the wing sauce that would cause my non-spicy-loving girls severe angst! There’s always next time!

Believe me, it doesn’t have to be the Super Bowl for these GF and Vegan “wings”! They totally satisfy the need for something naughty while being totally healthy! LOVE IT! I can't wait to add these to my salad today!
