Cauliflower "Hot Wings" - I even like them!

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.

Semper Fi!

  1. My wife has made roasted cauliflower which is basically this recipe without the batter/wing sauce and maybe with some garlic powder and they are pretty tasty. I don't think I would have thought of doing cauliflower like wings but I am now trying to figure out how soon I can make it happen. They definitely sound tasty.


    After Jesus was resurrected from the grave by the Father, He spoke of salvation twice to His disciples.

    1.Jesus said: Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.

    2. Jesus said: Luke 24:47-49 "And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all the nations, beginning at Jerusalem.........

    The apostle Peter preached Jesus and he preached repentance and water baptism for the remission of sins beginning at Jerusalem, on the Day of Pentecost. (Acts 2:22-38)

    The New Covenant terms for pardon were very clear. A. Faith in Jesus. B. Repentance (making the commitment to turn from sin and unbelief and turn toward God. And C. Be baptized in water.

    Jesus said it, "He who believes and is baptized shall be saved."


    1. He not did say be saved like the thief on the cross.

    2. Jesus did not say be saved like Moses.

    3. He did not say be saved like the woman who loved much.

    4. Jesus did not say be saved like Enoch.

    5. Jesus did not say be saved like Elijah.

    6. He did not say be saved like the paralytic.

    7. Jesus did not say be saved like Abraham.

    8. He did not say to be saved like Noah.

    Men today are to be saved like the three thousand who were saved on the Day of Pentecost. (Acts 2:22-41,....40... "Be saved from this perverse generation." 41 The those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.) The apostle Peter followed the instructions of Jesus.
