  • Ingredients
  • step-by-step directions
General Tso's Cauliflower
  • 1 head cauliflower (cut into florets)
  • 1 1/2 cups rice flour
  • 3 eggs whites (lightly beaten)
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat panko
General Tso's Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon ginger (peeled and minced)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1/2 lime (juiced)
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha (substitute with hot sauce or chili flakes to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • sesame seeds (for garnish)
  • scallions (thinly sliced, for garnish)
  • Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Separate flour, egg whites and whole wheat panko breadcrumbs into three separate baking dishes. Season each with Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Dip cauliflower florets in flour, shaking off excess, dip into egg whites and finally dip into panko breadcrumbs, coating completely. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and tender.
  • For the Sauce: in a small saucepan, add the oil and place over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the soy sauce, chicken stock, rice vinegar, lime juice, sriracha and honey. Mix to combine and bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Drizzle over the baked cauliflower. Garnish with sesame seeds and scallions.
  • Tip:
    - Make the sauce ahead of time!
    - Use the same recipe with your favorite protein or vegetable!
