Well Well… who knew a plain old boring cauliflower could turn into something so delicious and sinful in taste? The sticky sesame cauliflower wings taste just like that.
I don’t know about you, but it took me 35 years of my life before I started to appreciate — and even love cauliflower.
Before that, I didn’t even give cauliflower a second glance.
My childhood cauliflower – the boiled kind
My experience with cauliflower is boiled served with porkchops or a dry ham. That is how my mother served cauliflower in my childhood home, and I never looked back on cauliflower.
Cook cauliflower hundreds of ways
Never just a book by its cover – because I have never come across a more exciting and versatile vegetable.
Eat it raw, bake it in the oven, steam it, mash it, boil it.
You can subsitute it for bread, pizza dough, rice, make it in sushi, the sky is the limit
Cauliflower is the new potato. Treat it as such and make mashed cauliflower instead of mashed potato and save the calories. Or bake is in a casserolle. You can make cauliflower mac and cheese, cauliflower tots, honey-garlic cauliflower, cauliflower brownies, cauliflower popcorn, cauliflower breadsticks. And the list goes on. For ideas, head over to my cauliflower board on Pinterest.
Yummy cauliflower wings is a fast favorite
And this recipe – sticky sesame cauliflower wings is a fast favorite in my house.
As the matter of fact my husband said after his first mouthful: “I think the food is poisonous honey. Better leave it to me to eat the rest!”
It takes no more than 30 minutes – and you can eat it with rice, a green salad, or both.
I was inspired to make this recipe from the great foodblogger Connoisseurusveg.
However instead of soy/almond milk I used regular milk. So if you desire a vegan version, you should make the sticky cauliflower with soy or almond milk. Instead of sesameoil I used regular oil, whatever was in my cupboard. (It’s cheaper too…..)
