Ingredient: chickpea flour

Craveable Cauliflower Buffalo Wings

Craveable Cauliflower Buffalo Wings

Full disclosure: I’ve never eaten Buffalo Wings made with chicken. Wings became popular long after I became a vegetarian, but I’ve been making this recipe for years and find myself craving it, especially in the winter.

Why chickpea flour? No, not because I’m going all GF on you! I actually like the nutty, more complex flavor of chickpea flour because it adds a deeper flavor to the cauliflower, and it definitely provides a little extra protein. Where to buy? I usually get mine at a local Indian grocery store, but you can also find it in specialty/natural foods grocery stores that carry the Bob’s Red Mill line of flours/grains.

There are seemingly dozens of variations of this recipe on the Internets, but I have tried to make this recipe a little more straightforward and easy to execute without losing any flavor. I hope you enjoy and crave!

Socca/Farinata

Socca/Farinata

This is my go-to flatbread when I’m entertaining or wanting to cut back a little on gluten. It’s super simple and most everyone (except my kids) love it. Oftentimes I make it without the rosemary because either I simply forget (thank you, menopause) or our rosemary plant is dead (more often the case) and I have no fresh rosemary. Either way, it’s delicious. This is a common appetizer served in the south of France (Socca), as well as in northern Italy (Faranita).
