  • 1 Large Cauliflower head rinsed and divided into florets and then blanched in boiling hot water for 5 minutes and drained

  • 2 1/2 Cups/612ml dairy-free milk

  • Sticky TSO Sauce:
  • 2 tbsp of vegan butter
  • 2 tbsp of minced ginger
  • 2 tbsp of minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 tsp of cornflour mixed with 1 tbsp of water
  • 1/2 cup/118ml of tamari sauce or soy sauce for none gf
  • 1 1/4 cups of water/300ml

  • 1/4 cup/ 85ml of maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp of ketchup
  • 1 tbsp of rice vinegar apple cider vinegar will also work


  • Preheat the oven to 375F/190C.
  • Mix all the ingredients under the cauliflower coating list (Basically, you want a thick paste that can coat the cauliflower, so add just enough liquid to make a thick paste, the amount I have given is just a guide number) and coat the cauliflower florets with the floury/milk paste then place them onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, then flip them and bake for another 20 minutes. ( they will look golden and crisp)
  • Meanwhile, cook the sticky sauce: Melt the vegan butter in a saucepan, then add all the ingredients under the list of TSO sauce. Bring to a simmer, then stir until it reaches a sticky thick-ish consistency. About 5 minutes. let me sauce cool off for 3 minutes, then coat the baked florets onto the sticky sauce. Serve over rice, or as a side dish. Enjoy.
