在克利夫兰成长,在夏天的许多时间都花在泳池里浸泡了慵懒的夏天,没有在世界上关心。以及关于池日的最佳部分?

The pool snack bar…lots of chicken nuggets, french fries, and ice cream bars. Anyone else? What’s your favorite pool bar snack?

要非常诚实,我不记得从池小吃栏中订购这一切。主要是因为我们永远不会“属于”游泳池,总是有人的客人。也就是说,我确实在与堂兄弟的游泳池吃鸡块的回忆。即使记忆有点模糊,也很有趣地思考那些时间。

As I’ve been mentioning all week, I have all things summertime on my mind. Yes, this means plenty of sweet fruit recipes and plates of pasta filled with zucchini and tomatoes will all be coming your way soon. But for me personally, it’s a time to enjoy some of our favoritekid foodsas well.

Of course, with anadult-liketwist! Enter these BBQ beer battered cauliflower nuggets. They’re kind of like the chicken nuggets we all loved as kids…just made the vegetarian way.

And most importantly, they’re so delicious. Think extra saucy, tangy, sweet, and spicy.

并配上奶油蜂蜜芥末,用烧烤调味料调味......这么好。

Let’s all make some cauliflower nuggets…

I thought long about whether I wanted to deep fry these nuggets or oven bake them. And in the end? I couldn’t make up my mind, so I’m sharing BOTH fried and oven baked variations. Both the fried and oven-fried variations are delicious, though the fried is just a bit crispier, as you’d probably imagine.

Regardless, this recipe is about the sauces and seasonings, so either way you end up cooking these nuggets, they’re going to be GOOD.

Start with the beer batter. It is very simple. Gather my favorite blend of seasonings…smoky paprika and spicy cayenne, plus flour, and a little bit of beer. The beer creates a light and airy batter that I’ve found to fry/bake up better in the oven. It’s perfect.

And easy.

For Baking:你想在纸板上烤掘金,直到柔软。重要的是不要超越花椰菜。如果你过度烘烤它们,他们将最终露面,所以二十分钟,通过烹饪中途翻转掘金,真的是你所需要的。

For Frying: frying is actually easier than you’d think, and for this recipe, I prefer this method of cooking. It yields a nugget with an extra crispy exterior, and perfectly cooked pieces of cauliflower in the center. To fry, you simply heat a couple inches of oil in a deep skillet. Then fry for a few minutes until crispy, and drain on a wire rack. Surprisingly, this very little time.

While the nuggets cook, make some sauce.

我喜欢做我自己的烧烤酱。它看起来像一个long ingredients list, but in reality, it comes together in five minutes and with zero cooking involved. I promise it’s EASY. I’m sharing the recipe just below the cauliflower nugget recipe. If you have the time, I highly recommend making this, it’s my favorite BBQ sauce. A little tangy, a little sweet, and perfectly spicy. Very similar to Sweet Baby Ray’s, but much healthier.

In addition to BBQ sauce, I also like to make a quick honey mustard. Yes, double sauces here. It’s just how I like to do it.

这酱是一个喜欢的人。对于一个,很容易。只需混合,搅拌和完成。它是使用奶油酸奶,蜂蜜,芥末,更多烧烤调味料,只是一丝柠檬。这是额外的奶油,触感甜美,触摸辣。与这个花椰菜一样完美。酱汁中的奶油使一切都很开心,但甜味余额余额。

完成......

When the cauliflower nuggets are done baking, simply serve them up either drizzled or dipped in BBQ sauce. Then add the creamy honey mustard on the side for an additional dip. I love serving these alongside homemade french fries, but the nuggets would be delicious with a side of rice too.

Important Note:I don’t recommend covering the nuggets in BBQ sauce as the sauce can make the nuggets soggy over time. I find it best to just drizzle or dip the nuggets in the BBQ sauce (either homemade or store-bought – though I prefer homemade).

And for a vegetable, I ‘d do a big salad for a refreshing, crunchy bite.

完美的Lite夏季晚餐或有趣的开胃菜,以便在一周的任何一周内。

Ingredients

Creamy Honey Mustard

Instructions

  1. 1.在一个大碗中,混合面粉,辣椒粉,卡宴,发酵粉和少量盐。添加啤酒,混合直到刚刚结合。加入花椰菜并折腾均匀涂上所有的小花。

    2。To Fry: Heat 1-2 inches of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the cauliflower in batches for 4-5 minutes or until golden and crisp on all sides. Remove and drain on a wire rack with paper towels underneath. This will keep the cauliflower crisp.

    3.。To Bake: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Rub a baking sheet with olive oil. Spread the cauliflower in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet. Transfer to the oven and bake 20-25 minutes, until just tender, flipping halfway through cooking. Don't over bake. The cauliflower should still have a bite to it.

    4.。Meanwhile, make the honey mustard sauce. Combine all ingredients in a glass jar and shake or whisk until smooth and creamy.

    5.。Serve the nuggets drizzled or dipped with BBQ sauce. Add honey mustard for dipping. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

蜂蜜芥末酱:I use sour cream or yogurt, but for a more classic, less tangy taste, use mayo.

Homemade BBQ Seasoning:mix 2 1/2 tablespoons smoked paprika, 2 tablespoons garlic powder, 1 tablespoon onion powder, 1 tablespoon dried oregano, 1 tablespoon dried thyme, 1 tablespoon chili powder, 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper, 1 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt, and 1 tablespoon black pepper. Makes 3/4 cup.
