Cuisine: Asian
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 22 minutes
Total Time:  27 minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 small head cauliflower, cut into bite-sized florets
  • 2 cups panko
  • 2 eggs

Sauce

Slurry

  • chopped green onions or sesame seeds, for garnish (optional)

Here's how to make it: 

Whisk the eggs in a bowl. Put the panko into a plastic zipper bag. A little at a time, dip the cauliflower into the egg then shake in the breadcrumbs. Put coated cauliflower onto a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for about 20 minutes or until golden and crunchy.

While the cauliflower bakes, combine all the sauce ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Combine the slurry ingredients until smooth and pour it into the sauce. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes.

Pour the sauce over the cauliflower. Gently toss to coat. Garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds, if desired. Serve.
