vegan deli

Hi everyone! So this is gonna be the first post ever to be made about my recipes. I decided starting to share them to show my passion for cooking and to spread the word that vegan food can be both easy and delicious to make. This recipe is probably my favorite one, I thought it’d make a great first post. The pics won’t be the best since I don’t have a camera other than the one on my phone but oh well, hope you enjoy these upcoming recipes ❤️

Amazing Cauliflower Wings 

These wings are so delicious and easy to make. You’re honestly not gonna miss chicken wings once you’ve tried these!

Recipe:
(for the batter) Whisk all together
- ¾ cup of any kind of flour
- ½ cup of plain non-dairy milk
- ½ cup of water (make sure to add this carefully as we don’t want the batter to be so liquidly)
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp paprika
- pinch of salt and ground pepper

Dressing:
Heat up 1 cup of bbq sauce (or your favorite sauce like orange, red hot, buffalo, cayenne pepper) with 1 tbsp of vegan butter (you can add coconut oil instead or nothing else at all)

Ranch sauce:
- 1 ½ tbsp vegan mayonnaise
- 1 tsp onion and garlic powder
- ½ tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1-2 tsp non-dairy milk
- 2 tsp parsley flakes
- salt and pepper to taste
- a touch of maple/agave syrup if desired

Instructions:
Once you’ve cut the cauliflower into florets, dip each in the batter, then onto some panko (for extra crispiness) or bread crumbs. Get some baking sheets and line them with parchment paper, placing the florets all together. Bake them on a pre-heated oven at 400F for 25-30 mins. Then get them out and toss them in the dressing to, once again, bake them for another 20 mins.

Let them cool down a bit before eating; you can have sweet corn as a side dish or some fries.

Enjoy!

Last Smith & Deli trip before I leave for Europe for ages! Me and my Europe pal shared a Hail Seitan (salami, ham, turkey, pineapple, bbq sauce and cheddar) and a Tim Curried Egg Salad (I can’t believe it’s not egg-salad and shredded iceberg).

Good Friday lunch before yummy vegan ciders with my pals.
- Hail Seitan! (bottom sandwich) filled with ham, salami, turkey, pineapple, bbq sauce and cheddar. (My favourite now, its so good!)
- The Godfather (top sandwich) filled with hot chilli salami, pepperoncini, mozzarella, roasted peppers and basil.
- The Wiggum (right sandwich) filled with grilled bbq tofu, maple bbq sauce, slaw, pickles and chipotle mayonnaise.

We also bought yummy sweets, such as chilli brownies and a rum passion fruit tart, but we ate them too fast to take a picture. 😜
