You think cauliflower wings are totally passé? Think again! Everything is better dipped in spiced up tahini. Serve the wings in a soft taco with this sweet & spicy coleslaw, creamy avocado and fresh cucumber.
I've noticed that inviting yourself over to someone's is completely fine, when you tell them you'll cook. So a couple of days ago me & my boyfriend loaded our bags with some cauliflower and summer cabbage, and headed to my sister's place. My sister also has a blog, and she kindly took all the photos for this post, thanks again!
Note: We were in no hurry (okay we had wine to keep away the hangry), so we started by making the coleslaw to let the flavors sink in. If you're on a tighter schedule, start by making the wings and prepare the coleslaw while the wings are in the oven.
• 1/2 of summer cabbage or white cabbage
• 1 carrot
• 1dl mango puree
• juice of 1 large lemon
• 2,5 tbsp white wine vinegar
• 1 tbsp dijon mustard
• 1-2 fresh chiles
• a pinch of salt & black pepper
In a large bowl, mix together the seasoning: mango puree, lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper. Cut the cabbage into thin slices, then chop the slices into even smaller bits (easier to eat in a taco). Peel and grate the carrot. Remove the seeds and cut the chiles. Add everything into the seasoning and mix well.
Tahini cauliflower wings
(to fill 8 soft tacos; for 4 people)
• 700g cauliflower
• 1,5dl light tahini
• 2 tbsp oil
• 1tsp soy sauce
• 1 clove of garlic, crushed
• 1tsp spice powder of your choice*
• 1tsp black pepper
• (chili sauce, to taste)
*This time I used mango curry powder, but I also like to use smoked paprika powder. Try adding a pinch of cayenne pepper for an extra kick!
• 8pcs. small corn or wheat tortillas
• mango-chili coleslaw
• 2 avocados, sliced
• 1/2 cucumber, cubed
• fresh cilantro
Combine the tahini and the spices in a bowl and mix well. Cut or shred the cauliflower into bite-size "wings", try to make them as equal in size as possible.
Dip the cauliflower wings in the tahini sauce and place on an oven tray. Bake in 200°C for about 20 minutes.
Warm up your tortillas, prepare the other fillings...
My sister made dessert!! No, sadly I don't have the recipe. Yes, I had more dessert.
