I always try to post a little something for our vegetarian friends. As a matter of fact, this is so delicious, you don’t even miss meat. The sauce is absolutely everything, I guess you can end up putting on whatever you like; Lord knows I’m definitely going to try and find things I can add this amazing sauce to! Some of the ingredients are not exactly easy to find, but if you’re anything like me, you will have Amazon Prime, and you can have it delivered in 24 hours. I saved so many recipes with this home chef Amazon secret!
What you’ll need:
- 1 head of cauliflower, cut into bite sized pieces
- oil for frying
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp bakingpowder
- 1/2 cup iced water
- 2 tbsp sesame seeds
- 2 stalks scallion, thinly sliced
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 cup sodium sauce
- 1/4 mirin
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp Gochujang
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
In a large bowl combine cornstarch, flour, baking powder, and iced water, whisk until smooth. Add oil to a pot (about one inch high), and bring to medium heat.
Working in batches, if necessary, dip the cauliflower into the cornstarch mixture, making sure it’s covered all over, then add to the hot oil and fry until golden brown. Remove and rest on paper towels.
Add garlic, soy sauce, mirin, brown sugar, and gochujang to a medium pot and bring to a simmer. In a small bowl add cornstarch to about a tbsp of water, and mix thoroughly. Add to the glaze and whisk until fully dissolved. Remove from heat.
Add cauliflower to a bowl then top with the glaze. Sprinkle sesame seeds and sliced scallions.
