  • salt and pepper to taste

Orange Sesame Sauce

  • 1 orange, juice squeezed
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • pinch sriracha
  • pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 450 °F
  2. Rinse cauliflower and separate into small florets. Arrange on a greased baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 20 minutes or until slightly golden and tender.
  3. Meanwhile, combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Mix well and set aside.
  4. In a skillet or non-stick pan, heat sauce on medium heat until thickened. Turn down to medium low and add cauliflower to the pan.
