[lauren] ooh there’s a bug [john] is he alive? [lauren] maybe that’s why you’re supposed to wash it [lauren] sick. [lauren] uh oh i just lost the bug. it went inside the floret. [lauren] hey guys it’s lauren [john] and john [lauren] from hot for food and today we are gonna make [lauren] one of our most popular recipes for you. [john] it’s the cauliflower buffalo wings. [john] BUT today we’re gonna do things a little bit different [john] we’re gonna do cauliflower buffalo wings, [john] and barbeque buffalo wings, [lauren] and salt and vinegar wings. [lauren] so you’re gonna start with a whole head of cauliflower [lauren] cauliflower heads can be this big, [lauren] and sometimes they’re like this big cos they’re probably GMO. [lauren] so when we say use one head of cauliflower, [lauren] we’re like, okay, generally one head of cauliflower [lauren] is around the same size. [lauren] and that’s how much batter we’re making [lauren] but as you go along you may need to put a little more batter in the bowl [lauren] but it’s very simple. [lauren] this is one of the easiest recipes you can kind of improvise as you go [lauren] but we’re gonna address some of the issues people have [lauren] i.e. sticking to the baking pan, all of these things that we literally have never experienced, [lauren] so i don’t know what you’re doing wrong in the kitchen. [john] too much talky, not enough baky
[lauren] okay, fine, let’s cut. [john] this is probably one of the first things lauren ever [john] made for me that was like me kind of being [john] like “i’m craving *blank*” [john] which is how a lot of recipes on the blog kinda come to be [john] it was probably that stupid story like when i was in college [john] i went to this all you can eat wing place and i told her that i ate like [john] 50 buffalo wings in one sitting
[lauren] eww [john] and then she was like, let’s.. did you already know cauliflower was a good substitute? [lauren] yea, i mean we didn’t invent cauliflower buffalo wings,
[john] no. [lauren] they became popular, like around when we started the blog [lauren] so we just decided to try them and we ended up [lauren] like figuring out, a good best batter
[john] good, perfect. [lauren] and like whatever. cos some people like hardly put any batter on them and they like [lauren] try to make them super healthy and then they’re not even that good, [lauren] like they look like they’re just [lauren] raw pieces of cauliflower covered in sauce
[john] with hot sauce. [lauren] so we put batter on ours, we use flour, [lauren] and i feel like these, end up getting this texture that is kinda stringy, [lauren] and meaty like chicken. [lauren] so your pieces are around this size [lauren] now, jenna marbles and julien, her boyfriend, made these cauliflower buffalo wings on [lauren] j&j’s kitchen. [lauren] and that is how we ended up getting a lot of visitors to our website. [lauren] so thank you, jenna marbles, youtube extraordinare
[john] these are already youtube famous. [john] okay, let’s start on the batter [john] so you’re gonna start with three quarters a cup of all purpose flour, [john] you can sub rice flour if you wanna go gluten free, [john] those are the two we’ve tried and found worked [john] half of a cup or non-dairy milk, we used almond milk, [john] but you can use soy milk if you want. [john] you’re also gonna add half of a cup of water, [john] now it’s time for the spices, [john] so two teaspoons of garlic powder, [john] two teaspoons of onion powder, [john] teaspoon of my favorite, cumin. [john] and one teaspoon of paprika. [john] quarter teaspoon of pepper, [john] just gonna crack some in there, [john] and a quarter teaspoon of sea salt. [john] you’re just whisking it together to get it all combined and get rid of any lumps [john] and that’s the batter! [john] you’re like, pretty much done, you’re pretty much eating wings right now. [lauren] okay, here’s a very important step that people seem to not understand, [lauren] you’re gonna get baking sheets and you’re gonna line them with parchment paper [lauren] parchment paper is not wax paper, and it is not aluminium foil [lauren] it is parchment paper
[john] it’s parchment paper. [lauren] and it is your saviour in the kitchen. [lauren] if you don’t want shit to stick on these pans, you put parchment paper on. [lauren] you dip it in, you bathe it in this batter so that the batter gets in all those cracks and crevices, [lauren] and you just tap it on the side and place it on the baking sheet. [lauren] tap, tap, tap, place. [john] tap, tap, tap, and place [lauren] well, it’s just, it’s very easy for me but i know how to cook [lauren] but i’m tryna address if you don’t really know what you’re doing cos [lauren] people like to leave a lot of comments about this recipe [lauren] and all the things that happened during the process [lauren] but it’s user error, people. [john] not our fault. [lauren] it’s not our fault! we make these all the time, no problem! [lauren] i don’t get it, i don’t get what you’re doing. [lauren] okay, so tap tap tap, tap tap tappa, and place. [john] so these guys are gonna go into the oven for 25 minutes, [john] and that’s the perfect amount of time for you to work on your sauce [john] whatever sauce you choose.
[lauren] maybe you even have time to go on instagram for a little bit. [lauren] sometimes stuff burns when you do that, cos you get distracted. [lauren] okay so these are ready to go, you pop them in the oven, [lauren] it’s preheated to 450(F), that is a high temperature, [lauren] that’s how the batter gets sshk! nice and stuck and crisp. [lauren] now watch them, okay like this is a guideline, 25 minutes at 450(F) [lauren] flipping halfway through. [lauren] your oven may vary but it needs to be hot, [lauren] if it’s not hot enough, then these are just gonna sit, get soggy, [lauren] and the batter’s gonna stick, you know, that can sometimes happen. [john] we’re not lukewarm for food, we’re not cold for food, [lauren] we’re hot for food! [john] goodbye, have fun, we’ll miss you! [john] for this recipe, we just veganize how they make real buffalo wings, [john] which is, are you ready for this? [john] butter, and hot sauce. [john] so, vegan butter and hot suace. [lauren] i can’t even eat these, they’re too hot for me, i need to mix barbeque sauce with hot sauce. [lauren] so you can do that, and you’re gonna melt the butter, [lauren] and heat it with the hot sauce just till it gets melted and heated through, [lauren] and leave it off the heat until your wings are done baking the first round. [lauren] so for the salt and vinegar, you just melt the butter, [lauren] and you add it to the bowl with three tablespoons of apple cider vinegar [lauren] and a tablespoon of water. [lauren] you can even have like, if you’re gonna do different batches, [lauren] you can have different bowls of all your sauces ready to go [lauren] and as soon as those wings have come out of the oven, [lauren] after 25 minutes, then you toss them in the sauce and then you bake them again for 25 minutes. [lauren] and now for the salt and vinegar, you do the same thing. [lauren] and you’re also gonna add a little bit of salt now that they’re coated. [lauren] and if you want you can do a little pepper too. [lauren] back in the oven for another 25 minutes. [lauren] wooah kay, these are ready! [john] those look phenomenal. [john] oh my gosh, i just wanna eat it. [lauren] well, they’re really hot and we’re gonna make a nice looking platter for everyone to see [lauren] so right before you serve the wings, [lauren] you should still have a little bit of sauce left in your bowl, [lauren] toss them, or just sprinkle them with the rest of the sauce. [lauren] cos it’s gonna add more flavor and make em glisten [lauren] and don’t forget your ranch dip!

  1. I’m not vegan, but damn these are so good! I actually prefer these over actual buffalo wings ❤️ and this recipe is definitely fool proof, came out perfecttttt! Can’t wait for more recipes!

  2. I can't get the "print recipe" link to work. It takes me to a recipe index type page. This are our favs by the way! I know I've said it before, but I figured you'd like to hear it again! 🙂

  3. I started watching the video but soon decided to stop it and look just for the recipe as a text. Her attitude pisses me off.

  4. I made this with a half cup chickpea flour, 1/4 all purpose flour. It came out amazing. I did reduce the time by half on the second flip in the oven. Overall, with the chickpea flour it seemed to cook faster. It was well battered, thick batter, amazing.

  5. I really don’t like the way she is explaining the recipes.. making it seems like we’re all idiots. Bad attitude.. she put me off this channel

  6. Come on people. If you’re that easy to offend you need a thicker skin. She says it with a grin and a smile. I thought it was funny. Just TAP TAP TAP..

  7. I love the attitude. Usually people from the US act like pussies with a life purpose of not offending anyone. This is real. "This is our recipe, look how nice it is, this is how we don't fuck it up and I won't bleep out the fuck part"

  8. Hi Question – Can you bake & toss the 1st time through and then store in fridge a day or two before final bake & eat? Looking to make quick prep appetizers? Looks delicious!

  9. Anyone know a good vegetarian or vegan way to replicate Roast Beef?
    Not pot roast, that's everywhere.
    Like, the red, barely cooked slices… Practically still mooing

  10. This is the first time I’ve ever looked at your video and I find you , young lady to be Condescending.

    I’m totally turned off.

  11. random fact… cauliflower is gmo no matter what… its not of its own seed; along with broccoli, kale, and brussel sprouts…

  12. I used whole milk and my batter was fine, after baking it it was like…squishy. Idk what to do, I’m making them rn

  13. your parchment paper had to be touching the element, or the medal oven racks. It shouldn't catch fire if it is just lining the bottom of the baking sheet. Some people don't follow instructions and then create drama, or blame others.

  14. Holy smokes these are good! I did I different sauce but damn…. damn….. damn….. this is a must!
    My biggest meat eater friend who made fun of me for this asked for the recipe and my dog is also in love haha!

  15. I followed your recipe to the T. My batter dripped onto the pan and didn't have any crunch at all. Not sure what happened.

  16. These are WONDERFUL.
    I’m a baker who has owned a cake business. I am competent. They stuck. I ended up baking them the full 25 minutes before flipping to try to get them to lift off, but they still stuck. So I whipped up more batter and spooned it on top of the second (now naked) side after I flipped – had to use a new sheet of parchment paper as the first was covered in the batter – baked for 10 more minutes, and that worked fine.

  17. they never crisped up. i followed your directions. they stuck to the pan/batter pulled away. time to go eat soggy cauli covered in sauce. yay.

  18. I really like the two of you together in the video. You work well as a team. Can't wait to try this recipe, you made it easy to follow. 😁

  19. Honestly, her fucking attitude is all wrong for YouTube. Other than that, I love the recipe and I wanna try it, but I think it’s weird to have cauliflower look like cauliflower and not even attempting to make it look like it’s intended product. It’s supposed to be a sub for buffalo wings, make them look like boneless wings !

  20. One of your best vids. If your friends you should do a reunion. Life is precious and not forever. Do an Animal Cauliflower version?

  21. I know this is old but i just wanted you to know i make these maybe like once a week and my omnivore bf LOVES THEM. Even my family who hates when i make vegan food loved how they tasted! Im positive ill be making your recipe well into my 80s lol. Thank you so much for this recipe!
