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.
