Cauliflower Wings with Vegan Ranch

Forgive my use of the camera phone but the real thing seems to be on the fritz. Plus, I've got two kids now and everything is just a bit more...difficult (but oh so wonderful). For this year's Super Bowl Party, I made the ubiquitous Cauliflower Buffalo Wings. Yes, I said ubiquitous. Why? Because the actual chicken variety seems to be a bit old fashioned. Now, everyone is making these guys. Mine don't have that Frank's Red Hot look, but that's because I used Edward & Sons Organic Hot Stuff. It's got a unique and delicious taste. I also discovered that I can make ranch with the quickness. Here are my recipes.

Cauliflower Wings
1 small or 1/2 huge head of cauliflower
1 cup flour
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 ts salt
1/4 ts onion powder
1/4 ts garlic powder
3/4 cup Edward & Sons Hot Stuff
1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tb honey or agave

Prepare wings: Cut off pieces of cauliflower.
Prepare batter: Mix flour, milk, salt, onion powder, and garlic powder.
Prepare hot sauce: Mix hot sauce, oil, and honey or agave.
Coat wings in batter and arrange on a well oiled sheet pan. I used two sheet pans.
Bake at 450 degrees for about 20 minutes, give or take.
Coat wings in hot sauce.

water or unsweetened almond milk
onion powder
garlic powder

Thin out the Vegenaise with water or milk until desired consistency. Sprinkle spices according to taste.
