Recipe: Cauliflower Wings

One thing I had trouble letting go of when I was a newbie plant-based eater was chicken wings. But was it the chicken or was it the sauce? Ohhhh, right, it was the sauce!

So how THRILLED was I went I went to a new local vegan restaurant that had cauliflower wings?! Pretty thrilled.

I knew I needed to make these at home when I was feeling crafty. So I checked out a few online resources and moulded my own recipe.

The ONLY thing I would change about this is to try frying them instead of baking. I know...worst way to eat food. But in MODERATION, right? I don't own a fryer so I can't speak to how amazing they would REALLY taste, but my hubby believes for sure it would be best.
