So I have had this cauliflower in my refrigerator for a while and I knew that I couldn’t ignore it any longer, I decided to make General Tso Cauliflower baked. The flavor was spot on, it was so delicious with the perfect balance of sweet and savory,  served on a bed of brown rice

I’m so crazy about vegan General Tso recipes, they are quick and easy to prepare and the flavor is amazing, like my General Tso Chickpeas and General Tso Tofu

I enjoy making popular take-out dishes at home, I get to adapt them and make them from scratch with simple ingredients without sacrificing the taste. 

The recipes end up being a lot healthier than the takeaway version. For instance, for my General Tso Cauliflower recipe, I baked the cauliflower florets after dipping them in a batter. I ended up with a crispy texture. 

General Tso Cauliflower Steps

How To Make General Tso Cauliflower?

  1. Preheat oven 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, lightly spray and set aside.
  2. Combine batter ingredients in a bowl and whisk to form a loose batter, may need to add some water.
  3. Dip florets into batter one by one and place them onto the baking sheet. Spray or brush with oil. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown and crispy, turning halfway.
  4. While the cauliflower florets are baking, prepare the sauce.
  5. Combine vegetable broth, maple syrup, Bragg’s Liquid Aminos, tomato paste, lemon juice, sesame oil, cayenne pepper, and cornstarch in a bowl and whisk to fully combine. Set aside.
  6. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, add garlic, ginger and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  7. Add liquid ingredients and stir constantly until sauce bubbles and thickens.
  8. Add baked cauliflower florets and toss to full coat, sprinkle with green onions, and serve immediately.
