Cauliflower wings, a dish that looks and tastes exactly like the Buffalo wild wings or hot Chicken wings. These cauliflower wings even have crispy skin like with chicken and can make an amazing appetizer for your parties or just something to munch on, while you catch up on some television with your family.
I always knew that the world is made up of two kinds of people. Those who like books and those who like the movies that were made based on the books. Those, who play board games over the weekend and those, who go clubbing. And so on and so forth. Not confining myself to the category I belong to, I am pretty open to meeting and even liking people of the other category. What took me by surprise was the fact that there is a category of people who consider vegetarian food tastless and non-nutritious. Hmmm…
Coming from a predominantly vegetarian country, I found the idea of vegetarian food being tasteless quite shocking! Don’t get me wrong. There are regions of India where people cannot go a day without eating their meat, regions where fish is considered vegetarian and regions where chicken is a part of every meal. However, none of them, consider vegetarian food tasteless and nutrition less.
I know right! There is nothing that opens up your mind more than travelling across food barriers. For me, as a food blogger, moving to a predominantly meat-eating country has opened up a host of avenues. Not only am I able to work with the flavors of vegetarian food that are known to work well, I also get to swap flavor profiles. Using sauces and seasoning that are used for meat, to create vegetarian dishes gives me a high!
Like these cauliflower wings. I loved serving them to my husband and his friends and smiling at their surprise that these Buffalo wings were actually vegetarian. They were so taken by the fact that they could not tell cauliflower wings apart from chicken wings and that the vegan wings even had a crispy skin layer to them! Pssst.. The crispy skin over the cauliflower wings? Well- seasoned, crispy fried batter 🙂
