Easy Party Food Recipe: Chickenless Buffalo Wings
As the summer months approach so does the need to find recipes that are lighter and healthier. For many people this means quick, easy appetizers with some modifications to their traditional recipes. One of our personal favorites is "Chickenless" Buffalo wings. This recipe is a great idea for a summer cookout and makes a wonderful and easy party food.
Tempeh, an Indonesian fermented soybean food that is low in fat and calories, is used to replace the chicken. It is more solid than Tofu and has a stronger texture, which gives off a more chicken like feel. This quick and easy appetizer takes only about 40 minutes to prepare and to cook. It is the perfect option for a lighter and unique alternative to mundane and easy party foods.
8 oz package of Tempeh
1/3 cup soy or skim milk
1/3 cup flour
1 tsp basil leaves
1 tsp paprika
1 clove garlic
Pepper to taste
1 cup crushed Romano Garlic CheeseSticks
1/2 cup Buffalo wing sauce of choice
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon ketchup
1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large pot, bring 4 cups of water to boil.
2.Cut tempeh into individual slices. If this is your first time eating tempeh, I would recommend cutting it into thin strips to reduce any texture issues. After the tempeh has been sliced, add to the boiling water and let cook for 15 minutes.
3.Set out three medium sized bowls. In the first bowl add the milk. In the second bowl add the flour, salt, basil, paprika, garlic, pepper and CheeseSticks. In the third bowl combine the Buffalo wing sauce, butter, and ketchup.
4.When the tempeh has been boiled, rinse in strainer with cold water. Then dip the cooked tempeh in the three bowls starting with the milk, followed by the dry mixture and ending with the wing sauce.
5.Place the tempeh on a greased baking pan and cook each side for 10 minutes.
This easy party food can be served in several ways. Chop the wings into individual chunks and serve it in a salad for a lighter appetizer. If you would like to serve this as a meal, simply pair the wings with lettuce, tomatoes, and a blue cheese sauce for great buffalo wraps. This easy party food recipe is sure to be a big hit in the summer months!
