Flaming “Buffalo” Wings

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.

    eee, sista! I dunno about that margarine – even vegan style would have lots of trans fats, icky.
    maybe could use coconut oil?

    just my 2cents. Keep training.

    There are non-hydrogenated vegan margarines out there. Earth Balance is one that is non-hydrogenated and has zero trans fats!
