VeganMoFo: Buffalo Wangs and Ranch

My hetero-life partner, HippieMom, and her family (she is married to FroBoy and they have a beautiful son, Sammich) are in town for the week, and I couldn't be more over the moon about it.

We have several inside jokes and life mantras and one of our several mantras goes something like this: "You can't deny the power of the flower!" The flower being that delectable  versatile vegetable known as cauliflower. I believe cauliflower is her power vegetable.

So I made these awesome little VegWings for dinner her first night in the City of Trees. Actually, I made two batches. One batch I coated with buffalo wing sauce and the other half I douched in sweet and sour sauce for VegKid and Sammich.

Disclaimer: I didn't just make these wings up, I did some research and let it be known that I copied this recipe for Peta.org (in fact, you can click on the link below and it will take you to the page I stole the recipe from.) But hear this: the ranch is of my own concoction and it pretty much is a face-melter.

 Buffalo Cauliflower Wings:
1 c soy milk
1c whole wheat flour
2tsp. garlic powder
1head of cauliflower, chopped into pieces
1 c buffalo sauce
1 tbsp olive oil 

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Combine the soy milk, flour, and garlic powder in a bowl and stir until well combined.
  3. Coat the cauliflower pieces with the flour mixture and place in a shallow baking dish. Bake for 18 minutes.
  4. While the cauliflower is baking, combine your buffalo sauce and olive oil or margarine in a small bowl
  5. Pour the hot sauce mixture over the baked cauliflower and continue baking for an additional 5 to 8 minutes.
served with vegan ranch and mashed potatoes with asparagus straws

Vegan Ranch:
1/2 c nondairy milk 
1/2 c vegan mayonnaise
1 tsp onion powder 
1 tsp garlic powder 
2  tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp dried parsley
1/2 tbsp dried dill
salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Grab your milk and apple cider vinegar and let those guys rest together in a bowl for a minute or two.
  2. Combine the milk vinegar mixture together with the rest of your ingredients, in a food processor.
  3. Process that jazz and then eat it, or store it for later. Whatever.

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

Fried Peach Pasta Salad w/fresh mangoes & blueberries

But for 24,240 hours, you've patiently waited for me while I explored other things like getting married, expanding my reach on Instagram, getting a promotion, going on many tours with my band and recording two amazing (if I do say so myself) albums. And now I'm back for a little while because I missed you and I hope you missed me too.Speaking of missing stuff: ya know how in the Summer heat you can wait for Fall so you can wear your favorite sweater? And in the dead of Winter all you can daydream about how tan you're going to be come Summer? Well, Boise is officially entering the phase of Summer that makes you beg for Fall. With temps over 100 everyday it can be hard to cook, eat, or just function in general.

This quick and cooling salad is a one stop shop for a meal. It's got everything you need for it to be a successful single main dish, but it def works as side dish too.

Look a lot of people are dependent on salt to enhance the flavor of their food but here's the deal - too much salt (like anything else) is not awesome for your body, or your head, or your brain, or your mind (claps for anyone who can guess what movie that loose quote is from). I could go in to a long lecture-speech on the effects of eating too much salt but y'all ain't here for that and google is free. 
When you're ready to reduce your salt intake look for other flavor enhancers to make your meal's best attributes (a.k.a. flavors) P O P ! Like adding a squeeze or two of fresh lemon or lime juice, or your fave type of vinegar if you don't have any fresh lemon or limes; you really can't go wrong with adding fresh minced garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, basil, jalapeƱos, like literally any fresh strong flavor will do the trick and do it salt-free. In those times of desperate need get you a lil pump spray bottle and fill it with Braggs Liquid Aminos or co…
