Balsamic Glazed Cauliflower “Wings”







I've been on a roll lately. The healthy recipes I've made have been fantastic and when I'm done taking the picture I can't wait to add it to the blog and share it.

This recipe is from Cupcakes and Kale Chips. I picked up a head of cauliflower and wanted to make something different.  I love balsamic and I have fresh rosemary growing on the deck so I knew this was on the menu.

I'm lucky I got a photo of this- I was constantly  picking on it. It's SO good!

Ingredients:

 Sauce:

¼ cup balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp soy sauce 
¼ cup honey 
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tsp finely minced fresh rosemary
¼ tsp salt
a few grinds black pepper

 Cauliflower:

One large head cauliflower
½ cup all purpose flour 
½ cup milk of choice (I used almond milk)

Directions

For the sauce combine the ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. Set it aside for later.

Preheat over to 450 degrees

Spray a cooking sheet with non stick spray or if you have a slipat - perfect time to use it.

Cut the cauliflower into small florets- the smaller they are the faster they cook and will become very soft.

In a medium size bowl mix the flour and the milk.

Place the cauliflower in the bowl with the flour and milk combination and toss well, make sure every floret is coated.

Put the coated cauliflower on the greased pan in a single layer.

Bake about 15-20 minutes, it will look light when you take them out.

Remove from the oven and pour the sauce over the cauliflower.

Place the pan back in the oven for another 5 minutes.

Take the pan out of the oven and turn the cauliflower pieces over and put the pan back in the oven for another 5 minutes.

Remove the pan and serve.

This is delicious!  I have to make this again.

  6. Yum! I love using balsamic vinegar on veggies. I've made cauliflower wings with homemade "wing" sauce before, but this looks even better. Especially for garlic lovers or folks who can't handle heat. Maybe even folks who are picky about veggies, like my boyfriend. :)

  15. I think this is perfect for my weight watchers program. Always looking for fresh ways to incorporate more veggies into my diet. I found your recipe over at the Tuesday’s Table link party.  I host Tickle My Tastebuds Tuesday and would love it if you would come over and share this recipe.  I’m sure our party goers would love it!  Here is the link http://bit.ly/1kRX8Tm.  Have a wonderful day!

    1. Hi Lori- thanks for the invite, I'll be over to the party ASAP!

      I'll be making lots of healthy recipes. I have a weight that has to come off and especially since we are headed south soon. Hubby loves his wings and pulled pork. I do also and it's not fair. He can eat all the good stuff and not gain and all I got to do is look at it and it's on my hips!

      Thanks for stopping by.
