Inspired by Kung Pao chicken, this meatless recipe should please cauliflower and Chinese-takeout fans alike! Enjoy this saucy, sweet and spicy treat as a snack or pair with rice to make it a meal.

Ready in about 45 minutes

Serves 4

INGREDIENTS:
 1 head cauliflower, cut into bite-sized florets
 ¼ cup soy sauce
 2 tbsp brown sugar
 1 tbsp sriracha, sambal oelek or chili paste
 1 tbsp rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar
 ½ tsp garlic powder
 2 tbsp cornstarch dissolved in 1 Tbsp cold water
 Olive oil
 Optional garnish: sesame seeds, chopped scallions
DIRECTIONS:
1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place cauliflower florets in a large bowl.

2

In a small saucepan, combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, sriracha, vinegar and garlic powder. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring often. Add the dissolved cornstarch and continue mixing until the sauce thickens, about 1-2 minutes.

3

Pour sauce over cauliflower florets and stir to evenly coat.

4

Lightly coat a large baking sheet with olive oil. Spread cauliflower on baking sheet so florets are not touching; this will help them crisp.
