‘Sticky Sesame Cauliflower’


For the Baked Cauliflower
• 1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets (about 6 cups)
• 1 cup all-purpose flour
• 1 tablespoon cornstarch
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1 cup water

For the Sticky Sesame Sauce
• 1/3 cup soy sauce
• 1/4 cup agave or pure maple syrup or honey
• 1/4 cup rice vinegar
• 3 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 tablespoon sesame oil
• 1 teaspoon hot sauce, more or less to taste
• 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
• 2 tablespoons cornstarch
• 1/4 cup water

For serving
• sesame seeds
• chopped green onions

Bake the Cauliflower
1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and spray one large or two smaller baking sheets with oil (may also use parchment paper). Prepare the cauliflower by chopping it into florets.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, salt and water until a smooth batter is formed.
3. Drop the cauliflower into the batter, in batches if necessary. Then one by one lift the cauliflower florets, shake off excess batter and place on prepared baking sheet. Leave a little space in between the florets on the baking sheet so they can get crispy; they shouldn’t be touching.
4. Spray the cauliflower lightly with oil and bake for 25-30 minutes, until lightly brown and crispy. Remove from the oven and set aside.
Make the Sauce
1. While the cauliflower is baking, prepare the sauce. In a large pot or saucepan (you will add the cauliflower when it’s finished, so make sure you have a big pan), add the soy sauce, agave/ maple syrup / honey, rice vinegar, garlic, sesame oil, hot sauce and ginger.
2. Bring to a boil and stir to combine. Whisk together the cornstarch and water in a small bowl, and then add to the pan. Stir over medium heat constantly for 1-3 minutes, until the sauce thickens. Turn off the heat.
3. When the cauliflower is done baking, add it to the sauce in the pan and stir to coat. Serve with sprinkle of sesame seeds and/or chopped green onions. Enjoy!
TIP: If you want the cauliflower to remain crispy, simple serve the sauce on the side for dipping.
