  • Instructions

    • Prepare the cauliflower. Trim off the leaves and remove the stem, then chop the cauliflower into medium-sized florets.

      1 head cauliflower

    • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C/350 F. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper.

    • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cumin, paprika and plant based milk.

      1 cup flour,1 tsp cumin,1 cup plant based milk,1 tsp paprika

    • Dip each cauliflower floret in the batter, shaking off any excess. Arrange them in a single layer on the baking tray, and bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes. You can test for doneness using a knife or a fork to make sure the cauliflower is tender all the way through.

    • Prepare the sauce. Whisk together water, soy sauce, tomato paste, rice vinegar, orange juice and cornstarch. Transfer to a skillet over a medium heat and whisk continuously for 5 minutes, until the sauce thickens.

      ½ cup water,¼ cup soy sauce,2 tbsp tomato paste,2 tbsp rice vinegar,½ cup orange juice,2 tbsp cornstarch

    • When the cauliflower is done, mix it together with the sauce, also adding the sesame seeds. Serve immediately garnished with more sesame seeds, chilli flakes and scallions.
