This week’s “Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week is – Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Wings. I was looking at several sites for a Buffalo Cauliflower Wings recipe to pass along and came across the one that sounded the best from the PBS Recipe website. Made using Cauliflower Florets along with several Spices, Celery, and a Vegan Ranch Dressing. You’ll never miss the meat with this week’s recipe! Again its off the PBS Food website which has a fantastic and large selection of Recipes for all Cuisines, Diets, and Tastes so check it out today and always support your local PBS Stations. Enjoy and Make 2019 a Healthy One! http://www.pbs.org/food/recipes/

Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Wings
A great finger food for sports events, these vegan buffalo cauliflower wings are even better when some of the hot sauce is mixed with the batter so that the cauliflower really marinates in it.
Ingredients
1 cup water
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons hot sauce of choice (I used Frank’s red hot), divided
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
Handful of celery, trimmed and cleaned
Ranch dressing of choice (I used a store-bought vegan dressing)

Directions
1 – Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. To a measuring cup or small bowl, whisk together the water and 2 tablespoons of wing sauce. Set aside.
2 – In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, onion powder, paprika, salt and freshly ground pepper. Pour the water mixture into the flour mixture and mix until combined.
3 – Add the cauliflower and toss until combined. Transfer to a baking sheet and place in the oven to bake until cooked, about 15 minutes. (I used an air-fryer and it only needed about 10 minutes). Add the cauliflower to a bowl and toss with the additional wing sauce. Serve with slices of celery and ranch dressing.

Today’s Menu: Bourbon Glazed Chicken Breast Chunks w/ Crispy Parmesan Cauliflower Bites

 

 

Bourbon Glazed Chicken Breast Chunks w Crispy Parmesan Cauliflo 013
Had a bowl of Kashi 7 Whole Grains Puffs for Breakfast, love this cereal! Did some things around the house. Then out to the shed and repaired a wooden shelf that the bracket broke that was holding up one end. Another breezy and cold day out there, mostly sunny though. Got into the shower this morning and the shower curtain rod broke as I got in the shower. So it was off to Walmart and bought a new rod and shower curtain, needed a shower curtain anyway. So for dinner tonight it was appetizers, I prepared Bourbon Glazed Chicken Breast Chunks w/ Crispy Parmesan Cauliflower Bites.

 

 

Bourbon Glazed Chicken Breast Chunks w Crispy Parmesan Cauliflo 004
According to Basic Food Math, doesn’t 2 appetizers equal 1 dinner? Hope so because that’s my dinner tonight! I prepared Bourbon Glazed Chicken Breast Chunks w/ Crispy Parmesan Cauliflower Bites. I used PERDUE® Bourbon Glazed Chicken Breast Chunks and a container of Kroger Produce Cauliflower Florets.

 

 

 

 

Bourbon Glazed Chicken w Baked Potato and Cut Green Beans 003
As all the Perdue Chicken products it’s easy to prepare. Preheated the oven to 375°F. Sprayed a baking sheet with Pam Cooking Spray and placed the frozen Chicken pieces in single layer on the baking sheet. Baked on the middle over rack for 25 minutes, until heated through. Turned the pieces halfway through heating time. I’ve got another Perdue Chicken Product that makes a delicious dinner! The Bourbon Glaze is outstanding. Thick and spicy, but over powering. Another great Item to have on hand in the freezer!

 

 

Breaded and Ready!

Breaded and Ready!

I came across this recipe from one of my favorite blogger/web sites, Closet Cooking. Fantastic site with a load of delicious and creative recipes like the one I’m preparing tonight,Crispy Parmesan Cauliflower Bites. I had bought a package of the Cauliflower Florets at Kroger the other day with this recipe in mind. To prepare them I needed; 1 Package of Cauliflower Florets, 1/2 cup Flour, 1/2 cup Egg Beater’s, 1 cup Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko, 1/2 cup Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Grated Cheese, 1 tablespoon Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning, and Extra Virgin Olive Oil for frying. The original recipe and web link is at the end of the post.

 

 

Too Good!

Too Good!

To prepare them; Working in batches dredge the cauliflower florets in the flour, dip into the eggs, and coat in the mixture of the breadcrumbs, Parmesan and creole seasoning before frying them in oil heated to medium-high (~350F/180C) until golden brown and setting them aside on paper towels to drain. Love these! You could make a meal out of these alone. The only problem with this dish is trying to get them to the the table before eating them! Huge KEEPER RECIPE!! The original recipe and it’s web link is at the bottom of the post. 2 Appetizers does equal 1 Dinner! For dessert later a Kashi Dark Mocha Almond Granola Bar.
