Wing’ing It!

Being gifted with the option to grill, whether it be indoor or outdoor, opens you up to infinitely creative gourmet possibilities. One of my go-to grilling discoveries is a honey-turmeric marinade. I like to use two ways: on chicken wings, which are always fun in the summer, and on cauliflower florets, which I like to think of as a vegan twist on chicken wings! Here’s the thing about cauliflower; once it hits that grill, it transforms into this amazing powerhouse of smoky flavour and undeniably becomes the most satisfying vegetable for all vegans and non-vegans alike. So whether you’re chicken wing’ing it or cauliflower wing’ing it, this recipe will not disappoint!

Steps
  1. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl and let marinate for at least 20 min.
  2. Heat up the BBQ to medium high and then grill the cauliflower pieces until slightly charred.
  3. Add a sprinkle of salt and serve immediately.
JK’s Tips:
  • If the cauliflower dries out, toss it back in the mixing bowl with the leftover marinade and add a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil.
  • If substituting with real chicken wings, do not do this since the risk of salmonella poisoning is too high.
  • Instead, simply squeeze a bit of lemon & sprinkle some extra-virgin olive oil over the wings in a clean bowl to not risk contamination.
