We tried Morningstar Farms Buffalo Wings! Here's what we thought of their spicy veggie nuggets.
Morningstar Farms Buffalo Wings review
The Buffalo Wings from Morningstar Farms are another part of their Vegetizers line. We previously tried their pizza bites from that same line.
Doing this review almost felt like a cop-out, because this is a real late night staple in the Striepe house.
So I guess the short story here is that we both love these vegan buffalo wings! We make them in the air fryer (of course!) at 400° F for 12 minutes.
I love them because, although the coating is breadier than I normally like, it's also flavorful, which makes it a delight. They're crunchy and spicy, and Morningstar has nailed the texture of the plant-based chicken in these.
Dave loves breading, so that's not really a thing for him, but he just loves the flavor and texture of these.
The inner texture of these is also just incredible. It's lovely and toothsome, giving these vegan buffalo wings a meaty texture.
My go-to dip when we make these late at night is lazy ranch, where I sprinkle some dried dill, garlic powder, and onion powder onto a dollop of Vegenaise, and mix it together. Instaranch!
Dave dips his in yellow mustard.
Morningstar Buffalo Wings also make a great salad topper with ranch dressing, salad greens, lettuce, tomato, onion, and carrots.
I also apparently never told Dave that before we were all stuck at home, I used to make tacos with the MorningStar Buffalo Wings, adding avocado and a little vegan mayo. Such a quick, easy lunch!
