Ingredients

  • 4 cups cauliflower florets
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 4 to 6 seeded and stemmed dried red chilies
  • Garnish: fresh greens - toasted sesame seeds
For the sauce:
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic - grated
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place the cauliflower in a large mixing bowl.
  • Whisk the canola oil, corn starch, and soy sauce together in a small bowl. Pour over the top of the cauliflower and toss well to coat.
  • Transfer the cauliflower to a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet and roast in the pre-heated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, turning once halfway through, until tender and golden.
  • When the cauliflower is nearly done, prepare the sauce by whisking together all of the sauce ingredients from the soy sauce through the corn starch.
  • Heat a large skillet or wok over low heat.
  • Add the chili peppers and toast for 1 to 2 minutes or until fragrant.
  • Pour in the sauce and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Add the baked cauliflower and toss well until coated.
  • Turn off the heat and transfer the cauliflower to a serving dish.
  • Garnish as desired.
