The past year as many of you know had me in the get healthy or else category. It has also forced me to quit eating like a garbage disposal and find some healthier choices. This posed another problem - I don’t like that many vegetables. I had to find a way to eat them. I love to eat and I love to eat a lot! I am also a person who has to have that flavor explosion when I eat. I can’t eat the same bland, non crunchy, non spicy foods. I know me, I won’t stick to that. Since last July, I have found a bunch of recipes that I can live with and actually have grown to like them.
This past weekend, while being snowed in I found one that I love, cauliflower hot wings. It is super easy and gives me that spicy hot taste. Here is the recipe I followed and it worked for me.
- 1 head of cauliflower
- 1 cup general purpose flour
- 1 cup water
- wing sauce
- season (to taste)
Mix the cup of flour with the cup of water. Break the cauliflower into florets and dip into the flour/water mix. This will help the wing sauce stick to the florets. Then put the florets on a cookie sheet and bake at 450 for 15 minutes. At the 15 minute mark turn the florets over and bake for 15 more minutes for a total of 30 minutes. Then take the florets out and place them in a container you can toss them in with the wing sauce. Once they are coated, back in the oven for 10 more minutes. Another recipe I found suggested to fry the cauliflower in teaspoon of olive oil, making them crunchier. I don’t know if that works, I haven’t tried it yet.
I am not a huge cauliflower fan, but these things were delicious. I suggest giving them a try if you are looking for something healthy with a kick to it.
