Cauliflower Buffalo WingsMake on Drop
WELL....I tasted these a long time ago at a pizza restaurant that has now closed and I have literally thought about them ever since and often. On my recent trip to USA to visit with my son, my request was that we find Buffalo Cauliflower Wings...no go where he lived. So when we had to do a bunch of Vegetarian recipes for Drop this was a no brainer as we already have literally the best BBQ sauce recipe in existence available. If you haven't made it yet, it appears in Tenina's America the amazing cookbook that you really all need! (Which comes with the free E-version!) It is also available when you are an Insider! Come on in, the mixing is FINE!
We did some in the oven, by the way and some in the Air Fryer...and I think pretty much the same result, just quicker in the Air Fryer, but a smaller volume...which could be a good thing!
Best of all, come join us on the Insider Club to have extra Thermomixery each and every month! #recipesthatwork #youcandoit
