Curious about the cauliflower? Of course you are…let me help.
Interestingly, this cloud-like member of the cole family originated from the delish DNA of the wild cabbage. Derived from the italian word cavolfiore, meaning “cabbage flower” they were first described in writings dated in the first Century AD; but didn’t commonly appear on the dinner table until the 1640’s.
Relatives of the cauliflower include broccoli, brussels sprouts, collard greens and kale. They make a great low carb keto rice, they come in four different colours, and a single floret contains 10% of your daily Vitamin C needs. Perhaps the most curious fact of all…the cauliflower is surprisingly difficult to grow. Read more about keto-approved veggies here.
How Easy Is This Recipe To Make?
In the world of amazingly tasty finger-licking keto finger foods, our vegan cauliflower buffalo wings are a cinch really, and quite messy and fun to prepare. Give yourself plenty of cooking time as the oven has a bit of work to do, while you get on with other things…like…being awesome.
Will It Break The Vegan Keto Bank?
Cauliflower isn’t the cheapest of the cole family foods at about twice the price typically of its green brother the broccoli. That being said, it’s a filling and flavorsome snack that you don’t need much of, particularly as an appetizer. If you’re feeding an army of ravenous kind ketonians, you might want to throw a few lower-priced veggies in the mix using the same batter and beautiful buffalo spice crust.
Vegan Keto Secret Tip
The cauliflower stem makes a cracking slaw! Why waste the stunning delicate flavor of the cauliflower stalk?
Just peel off the fibrous outer layer around the central ‘marrow’ like you would peel a carrot, and grate or shred the stalk for a tasty fresh textured salad extra.
You can also trim the leaves off their stem and soften them like you would cabbage.
Raw leaves will keep for up to a week in the fridge loosely wrapped.
You just need bowls for your batter and tangy tomato sauce!
And if you have as much fun cooking this dish as you should…you’ll need an apron, a mop and a cloth.
A playful finger food for the vibrant vegan keto in a messy mood! Perfect canape style cooking or appetizer when you’re entertaining.
