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).

RESTAURANT REVIEW: Firenza

...

I’m not gonna lie to you my pizza was very bomb but everything else was very not.

Firenza (located in downtown Boise) looks, feels, and acts like a corporate fast food franchise because it is a corporate fast food franchise but it’s a corporate fast food franchise that offers vegan pizza, and if it wasn’t for the damn up-charges it would be, on the cheap. 

My guests and I walked through the front door of Firenza (which was kinda hard to find to be honest) and I immediately got thrown back to my high school cafeteria and not in a pleasant way. Imagine bare white walls and what looks like a giant high school logo painted over a pizza assembly line. 
We approached the pizza assembly line and I immediately told the staff member who welcomed us that this was our first time visiting the restaurant and asked for guidance. They said ok and blankly stared at us until I eventually broke the awkward silence and started asking about vegan options. 
The sauces on the menu were clearly marked as veg…

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…
