Cauliflower "Wings"

So while I was on pinterest I found this fantastic looking recipe for vegan hot wings. Since I'm currently cutting back (significantly) on my meat intake, I was pretty excited about this. Unfortunately, I a not a big fan of really spicy (though some is good), so I made some tweaks to the recipe- which I will share with you lucky ducks.

 Cauliflower 'Wings'
2 cups water or soy milk
2 cup flour (any kind will work—even gluten-free!)
4 tsp. garlic powder
4 tsp onion powder
1 head of cauliflower, chopped
1 cup(ish) total of honey, BBQ sauce, steak sauce, sweet chili sauce, and (fat free) ranch dressing
1 Tbsp. olive oil or melted  margarine

Preheat the oven to 450°F.
Combine the water/soy milk, flour, and garlic powder in a bowl and stir until well combined.
Coat the cauliflower pieces with the flour mixture and place in a shallow baking dish. The original recipe says to bake for 18 minutes, but i found that the flour mixture still tasted kind of doughy; so I would say to bake for about 20-25  minutes.

While the cauliflower is baking, Mix your sauces together (to taste) and add the olive oil/margarine in a small bowl. If the sauce is too thick, you may want to add more honey, or water it down a little

Pour the  sauce mixture over the baked cauliflower and continue baking for an additional 10-15 minutes.
