Today, another vegan recipe (so many of you guys requested!! Thank you so much!), Orange Cauliflower by Asian at Home, you know it will be delicious!

I love all kinds of veggies, there is no vegetables that I don’t eat. Cauliflower is definitely not the most familiar veggie for Asian cuisine but it’s definitely one of the most trendy vegetables!

I love making meatless dish like this with firm tofu, mushrooms or impossible meat so if you want to try this recipe other than cauliflower, you can feel free to switch the “protein” part. 😉

The sauce is really the killer though, perfect balance of savory, sweet and tangy… um, um, um!

Are we ready to start the recipe? Because I am!

Chop 2 cloves of garlic and about same amount of ginger finely.

Pull leaves off base of cauliflower and cut around the stem. Break the cauliflower into large forgets with your finger then cut them into smaller florets as bite size.

Meanwhile, combine remaining 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp sambal, 1 tbsp raw sugar, 2 tbsp vegetarian oyster sauce, 1 tsp hoisin sauce, fresh juice from 1 juicy orange, 1 tbsp rice vinegar and 1 tsp corn starch in a mixing bowl.

You could use orange zest if you want to. But for my taste, orange zest fight with soy sauce flavor and create a bitter taste in the dish. I love orange zest but not prefer for this this.

Set aside.

I love using vegetarian oyster sauce! It’s made with mushroom and have tons of umami flavors that you won’t miss regular oyster sauce! You can find them easily at local Asian grocery stores or online. 😊
