These breaded and baked cauliflower bites act as imposters for chicken wings - a great vegetarian option!
3 cups oil, for frying
1 head cauliflower, chopped into bite-size pieces
½ cup flour
½ cup water
¼ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp salt
1 tsp melted butter or ghee or margarine
⅔ cup hot sauce
1 tsp butter, melted
½ cup blue cheese, crumbled
2 cups sour cream
Salt and pepper
1 carrot, peeled and cut into sticks
1 stalk celery, cut into sticks
1. Preheat oven to 450ºF (230ºC). Preheat oil to 425ºF in a frying pan.
2. In a medium bowl add flour, water, garlic powder, and salt. Whisk until smooth. Place cauliflower into batter and evenly coat. Use a fork to scoop out the cauliflower and place into oil. Cook in even batches so there’s enough space around the cauliflower to properly fry. Remove when cauliflower is a golden brown colour. Place on paper towels to remove excess oil. In a bowl mix together hot sauce and butter. Add cauliflower and coat evenly. Place on baking sheet in oven for 5-8 minutes.
3. In a small bowl add together blue cheese, sour cream, and salt and pepper to taste. Plate the cauliflower with the blue cheese dip and celery and carrot sticks.
