VEGAN Quinoa Buffalo “Wing” Bites!

mochaloca

Every year on January 1st I set my yearly resolutions, but I also decided to start finding one way to challenge myself, just to see if I can do it. Last year I did no eating french fries  for the entire year (which was a serious issue for my drunk self who NEEDS poutine). This year, I decided to do NO MEAT.  For me it isn’t very difficult except when I go to a pub and REALLY want some hot wings. So here is my substitute for chicken wings, that aren’t only vegetarian, they are VEGAN too!

 

Ingredients:

q2

 

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 2.5 tbsp watter
  • 3 tbsp (give or take) Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Daiya Cream Cheese Style Spread
  • 1 shredded carrot
  • salt + pepper to taste

 

 

Directions:

The first thing you need to do is get your egg substitute ready. I used flaxseed meal in place of an egg to bind my quinoa bites together.

Combine flaxseed meal, and water in a bowl. Let sit for at least 5 minutes. It will become the texture of raw egg whites.

Next, you just combine all ingredients together (including your flaxseed meal, egg replacement) in a medium sized bowl.  QUICK and EASY!

Place into lined muffin tin (I like to use re-useable silicone muffin cups like these… Silicone Baking Cup Moulds ).

Bake at 400°C for 30-40 minutes.

Remove from oven, let cool, & ENJOY!
