Barbecue season is officially upon us. And what’s more fitting for your summer picnic than a batch of vegan wings?
On this episode of EATKINDLY With Me, Nathan-Josias, a French plant-based chef currently residing in London, makes barbecue chickenless wings out of oyster mushrooms.
Nathan-Josias makes the savory barbecue sauce using only four ingredients: maple syrup, ketchup, balsamic vinegar, and smoked paprika. The wings are beer-battered, but he notes alcohol-free beer or sparkling water can be used instead. “But, you will not have the same taste,” he adds with a laugh.
For a bit of a kick, the batter features chili powder, as well as flour, salt, pepper, and baking powder. And what’s a vegan wing without a little dipping sauce? Nathan-Josias also whips up a creamy ranch dressing sans dairy. Feel free to double-dip.
