There has been lots of talk at my place about vegan barbecues and the “politics” around being so exclusionary, but we’re going ahead with it anyway. This is a recipe that was suggested to me from goveg.com:
Flaming ‘Buffalo Wings’
These extra spicy “wings” will be a hit at potlucks and football parties or on poker night.
- 1/4 cup vegan margarine
1/4-1/2 cup hot sauce (try Texas Pete brand)
Tabasco sauce, to taste
Pepper, to taste
Garlic powder, to taste
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. cayenne
1/4 tsp. salt
Vegetable oil sufficient for frying
1 pkg. Chickette or 2 pkgs. seitan
• In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the margarine, hot sauces, pepper, and garlic powder. Cook, stirring often, until the margarine is melted. Lower the heat and keep warm while preparing the “wings.”
• Combine the flour, paprika, cayenne, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside. • In a heavy skillet over medium-high heat, heat enough oil to fry the “wings.”
• Tear the Chickette or seitan into “wing”-size pieces. Dredge in the flour mixture. Fry until browned, flipping halfway through. Drain on paper towels.
• Toss with the prepared sauce. Serve with celery and carrots sticks and vegan ranch dressing.
Makes 4 servings
Note: If you have leftovers, serve them wrapped in a tortilla with vegan ranch dressing, chopped celery, shredded carrots, and lettuce for a quick lunch.
