Chicken wings are the celebratory staple of many sporting events, but the calories can add up far quicker than touchdowns do. So how about cauliflower wings instead? Clinical nutritionist Cynthia Pasquella, author of The Hungry Hottie Cookbook, says the vitamin K and folate content in cauliflower help keep blood healthy while also fending off future colds — cauliflower can boost immunity by providing the body with vitamin C.
Recipe: Hungry Hottie Wings
Yield: Four servings
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup gluten-free flour
2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 head of cauliflower, chopped
1 cup barbecue sauce
1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1-2 sprays of extra light olive oil
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Combine coconut milk, flour and garlic powder in a bowl and stir until mixed well. Spray baking pan with olive oil. Coat each cauliflower piece with the mixture and place in the baking pan. Bake for 16-20 minutes or until slightly golden brown. Meanwhile, combine barbecue sauce and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Pour hot sauce mixture over the baked cauliflower and continue baking for an additional 5-7 minutes. Pair with a healthy Ranch dressing.
