Cauliflower wings

  1. Turn over on to 250 c. Put a baking tray with the oil in, into the oven.
  2. Cut the cauliflower up into bite size, graspable pieces.
  3. Submerse those bad boy bits into a batter made from the water and flour. Make the batter by adding the water to the flour (bit by bit, so not to turn it too runny) till you see a consistency thick enough to cling onto the cauliflower.
  4. Take your now hot try from the oven, test by dripping a drop of water into the oil. If it hisses and crackles you’re ready to go. Drop those Bad boys in.
  5. About 5 mins in to cooking, remove the tray from the over. Turn the cauliflower piece round using tongs and then put the tray back in. This ensures even cooking!
  6. It should take about 15 – 20 mins.
  7. Remove. Enjoy. Job done.

HANG ON! Job isn’t done, what about the dips. DON’T PANIC. You will have already made the dips!

Blue cheese dip

  1. Spoon out the cheese into a bowl.
  2. Add all ingredients.
  3. Whisk (With a spoon, fork…whisk?)
  4. Add more milk for runny consistency, less….you get the idea. More salt for saltier…less…well, you understand I am sure.

Buffalo sauce

  1. All ingredients into a different bowl to that of the blue cheese.
  2. Whisk.
  3. Done.
  4. Again, more chilli for hotter, less for notter. More ketchup for sweeter, less for notter. More vinegar for tang, less for lesser.
  5. Vinegar will also loosen so make sure to pay attention the ratios. Anything you come out with will be pretty tasty SO DON’T PANIC!
