I am a person who loves Cauliflower. In fact, I like it even more than Chicken or Shrimp. Well, that might be an exaggeration, 'coz Chicken has to be my favorite. However, Cauliflower recipes, do rank in the top three.
And, I have made so many Cauliflower recipes until now, call it my food blogger mind, which is always on the lookout for amazing and unique Cauliflower Recipes which I love to make for y'all.
I was watching some cooking shows on Netflix. I am sorry I don't remember the name of the show. But, in that show, the contestants were big Chefs from all around the world.
So, basically, Chefs were competing against Chefs. And, in that show, they had to travel to different countries and then they had to make one of the most popular recipes for that place with some innovation. So they were given a topic - "Butter Chicken without Chicken".
And there was this one Chef who picked up a Cauliflower head and decided to make Cauliflower just like he would cook Butter Chicken. When asked why?
He said - "it is one of the meatiest vegetables that can come close to Chicken, any day". And I couldn't agree more with him 🙂 Do you think so too? Comment below.
Cauliflower is so versatile that you can literally make anything with it.
Until now, I have made so many recipes with Cauliflower that's it's almost my favorite veggie that I definitely include it in my weekly rotations.
And, today, I am gonna be making these amazing Korean Cauliflower Wings.
🥘 Baked Cauliflower Wings
I love baked Cauliflower Wings more than Fried Wings. When you bake your Cauliflower wings, they cook at a controlled temperature in your oven and that helps your Cauliflower achieve that crispy texture on the outside.
After all, isn't that what we look for when we want some Cauliflower wings.
Moreover, baking Cauliflower wings also helps you clean up everything easily. Especially in a recipe like this. Also, it's so healthy.
📝 Korean Cauliflower Wings Recipe
Hearing the word Korean what is the first thought that comes to your mind? Be honest and tell about it in the comment box below.
When I hear the term Korean my mind immediately picturizes some saucy, spicy, sizzling hot food.
And, now that I have been into food blogs for so long, I seem to think about Gochujang Sauce (Korean Red Chili Paste).
Gochujang has a sharp taste which is sort of salty but it goes so well with meat and other veggies. If you need to add an edge to your dish that is otherwise falling flat, then try adding some Gochujang Sauce. It will make it taste so good.
🍴 Ingredients needed to make Korean Style Cauliflower Wings:
- Cauliflower Head: Make sure you cut out the stalk and then chop them into small bite-sized wings.
- Avocado Oil: I love the mild taste of Avocado Oil.
- Korean Gochujang Sauce: You can either make this at home. Or you can purchase it from any Asian market.
- Sesame Oil - I just love the light taste of Sesame Oil. However, for a more intense flavor, you can use toasted sesame oil.
- Coconut Aminos - One of the best alternatives to Soy Sauce. If you are avoiding High-Sodium food items then this recipe is the best choice for you.
- Honey - Instead of Honey you can always use Maple Syrup.
- Chili Garlic Sauce - To add that little tang and that wee bit of spicy touch.
- For Garnish:
- Sesame Seeds
- Fresh Cilantro
