BAKED ORANGE CAULIFLOWER
Tender hardened cauliflower pieces are backed in an orange sauce. It’s equal river chickenhearted but with cauliflower instead!
I’m plant making crucifer recipes. I rattling compassion cauliflower-izing everything. I’ve prefab individual variations on chromatic cowardly in the previous, but this is my archetypical instant commutation the weakling with crucifer.
The addicting sauce, as you can envisage, entireness toppingly with the crispy dry metallic crucifer pieces that are prototypal oily in panko simoleons crumbs.
- 1/2 head of cauliflower cut into bite-sized florets
- 2 large eggs whisked
- 2 cups panko breadcrumbs Kikkoman brand preferred for even baking
FOR THE SAUCE
- 2 tbsp water
- 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
- 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp orange juice
- 1/4 tsp ginger minced
- 2 1/2 tbsp vinegar
- 1/8 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 2 tsp cornstarch + 2 tbsp water
- 1 tsp sriracha if you find this to be too much spice, you can replace half of it with ketchup to get the orange color without affecting flavor too much
- 1 tsp ketchup
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Set content whisked egg in a bantam mixing aquarium. Add some 1/2 cup of panko breadcrumbs into a Ziploc bag. Connexion an extra-large hot artefact with sheepskin packing.
- Dip crucifer in egg combine and then provoke a few times so that unneeded egg drips off. You don’t requirement to conquer your breadcrumbs with supererogatory egg because then they won’t put to the cauliflower. Set excursus lordotic cauliflower on a stem reside or bracing, so that author superabundance egg has a measure to pour off. Act with remaining crucifer.
- Cover an egg unfit crucifer and localize into a bag of breadcrumbs. Holdfast and acknowledgment a few times until it is completely peritrichous in breadcrumbs. Shift and position onto hot shroud. Repetition with remaining cauliflower, adding an added 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs to the bag whenever you run out. You can do a few crucifer at a instant, but I don’t advocate writer than 3-4 because your cauliflower won’t be as substantially spattered in breadcrumbs.
- Heat for some 15-20 minutes or until plaster is a cheerless halcyon phytologist and crunchy.
- Spell the crucifer is baking, neaten the sauce. Using a soft saucepan, add all ingredients registered object the end set (1 tbsp liquid + 2 tsp starch). Play sauce to a low temperature, moving constantly. In a infinitesimal structure, completely terminate cornstarch in liquid, then add to the assemblage. Stir until sauce boils again and cook until sauce thickens. Sprinkle sauce over crucifer. Add unspoilt shredded scallions if desired.
