Spicy Cauliflower Wings

It’s time for everyone except the Patriots’s fans’ least favorite day: Super Bowl Sunday, starring (again), Tom Brady and his supporting cast of football players and Gisele, who will definitely be Snapchatting the entire game from a warm glass box somewhere. Whew. Sorry. This is what being raised in a household of die-hard Steelers fans does to you.

Anyway, the Super Bowl is great despite the Patriots playing again. There’s the commercials, the halftime show, and, of course, the food. I may not be the most attentive TV watcher in the history of TV, but put a plate of food in front of that box, and I’ll be sitting there for hours. That’s most of what my strategy is for Sunday, too. Keep the food (and drinks, DUH) coming, and I’ll watch the whole Super Bowl, even if the Patriots are winning.

Before I offend anyone else, I’ll get to the content you’ve been waiting for: a round up of the best recipes to make for hosting a Super Bowl party like no other. Invite your vegans, invite your vegheads, and invite your carnivores because there’s something here for everyone, like the spicy cauliflower wings below. Head on over, grab a few recipes, and let me know how they turn out by tagging them with #pageandplate on the gram.

Spicy Cauliflower Wings

Prep time:

Cook time:

Ingredients:
  • 1 head of cauliflower, separated into florets
  • 2 TBSP of sesame oil
  • 3 TBSP of vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 inch knob of ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 4 shishito peppers
  • 1 TBSP of hot chili oil
  • 1 TBSP of tomato juice
  • 1 tsp of rice wine vinegar
  • 2 TBSP of brown sugar

Instructions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 400, and line a baking sheet with tin foil, then place a cooling rack on top of the foil. This makes clean up as easy as watching the Patriots lose the Super Bowl. Whaaaat.
  2. Add the cauliflower florets, the sesame oil, 2 TBSP of vegetable oil, garlic, ginger, and salt to a large plastic baggie, then shake to evenly coat cauliflower.
  3. Dump onto the cooling rack / sheet tray contraption, toss the shishito peppers in there too, and pop that baby in the oven for 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, make the glaze: combine the rest of the vegetable oil, the hot chili oil, the rice wine vinegar, and the brown sugar in a small container, then whisk to combine until the sugar is dissolved.
  5. After the cauliflower has been in for about 15 minutes, or when the top is starting to brown, take the tray out and brush the glaze over the florets using a spoon, a pastry brush, or whatever else you can come up with.
  6. Put that back in the oven, and crank it up to broil. Leave it be for about 5-10 minutes, or until the glaze is getting tacky on the tray and the cauliflower is a nice, redish-brown color, then take out and cool.
  7. Serve with sriracha mayo or ranch if you're feeling yourself.
