Meatless Monday with Vegan Sweet Chili Habanero Glazed Cauliflower Wings

Welcome to the Miratel blog for our Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.

There are a few solid vegan go-to food items that are so versatile and can be used in any number of recipes as they just adapt. Tofu is one of those items and another is cauliflower. The healthy, humble cauliflower can be eaten fried, boiled, mashed, roasted or raw with a variety of dips, toppings and spices. We have featured cauliflower in recipes like Cauliflower Chick Pea Patties and Roasted Cauliflower Check Pea Salad and today’s Sweet Chili Habanero Glazed Cauliflower Wings. According to the chef who created today’s recipe, “Sweet and spicy chili habanero glazed cauliflower wings are the perfect appetizers for potlucks and parties. The cauliflower florets are battered in an elegant tempeh batter, lightly fried, and then tossed in a tangy, spicy, habañero chili sauce that out of this word. While these are perfect to share with guests – they’re so delicious you may not want to.” This absolutely delicious recipe – once again – comes courtesy of Ashley Hankins of Eat Figs, Not Pigs, an incredible site full of awesomely unconventional vegan recipes with great food images via the always reliable One Green Planet.

INGREDIENTS (serves 4)

  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into bite-size piecesVEGAN SWEET CHILI HABANERO GLAZED CAULIFLOWER WINGS
  • Oil for frying
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened, unflavored almond milk
  • 1 1/2 cups tempura batter
  • 1 cup ice cold water

  1. In a small saucepan, over medium-low heat, combine the sweet chili sauce, habanero, 1/2 cup sriracha, and vegan fish sauce.
  2. Stirring occasionally, keep the sauce on a low simmer while you are making the cauliflower wings.
  3. In one bowl, add the flour and cornstarch and mix them thoroughly. In another bowl, add your almond milk. In a third bowl, add tempura batter, the remaining sriracha, and ice cold water.
  4. Mix the tempura batter until it becomes a thick mixture, but thin enough to dip cauliflower pieces into.
  5. Dip each wing into the almond milk, then the flour mixture, then batter them with tempura batter.
  6. Fry the cauliflower wings on medium-high heat until golden brown, about 7-8 minutes.
  7. Once all the wings are fried, toss them with the sweet chili habanero glaze in a large pan. Garnish them with green onions and sesame seeds.
