WINGS: 1. Wash the head of cauliflower and break apart into bite sizes pieces. Place in large mixing bowl and set aside. 2. Place all ingredients (except cauliflower) into blender, and blend until smooth. 3. Pour “hot” sauce over cauliflower and distribute evenly, coating all the “wings.
4. Set dehydrator to 118F degrees, and set timer for 7-8 hours. 5. Place coated wings on dehydrator safe paper on dehydrator trays.
WARNING: do NOT put wax paper in dehydrator. if you do not have dehydrator liners, use parchment paper.
DIP: While wings are cooking, make dipping sauce! This is optional! If you do not feel like making a dipping sauce, feel free to dip your wings in mayo, blue cheese, or ranch (vegan, of course)! 1. Drain cashews and place in high speed blender. (I use my smaller / mini blender for this), and pulse a few times 2. Place rest of ingredients in blender with cashews EXCEPT water. Blend. 3. Then, only add 1/4 TBSP of water at at time, until you get the consistency you like. Remember to tag @ClementineCrossing and Use the hashtag #clementinecrossingrecipe
