Orange Fakeout

    Tangy, sticky, satisfying.

    GF. V. SF. NF.


    Crispy cauli:

    1 head cauliflower, chopped into small florets 1/2 cup GF AP flour (I use Pamela's Artisan Blend) 3/4 cup water 1 tsp garlic powder 1/2 tsp salt

    Get saucy:

    1 cup water

    1/4 cup orange juice

    2 tbsp lemon juice

    1/3 cup rice vinegar

    2 1/2 tablespoons coconut aminos (or Tamari if you eat soy)

    Zest of 1 orange

    1 cup brown sugar

    1/2 tsp fresh ginger (grated) 1 clove of garlic (grated)

    Dash of Sriracha (or your fav hot sauce)

    3 tbsp cornstarch mixed with 3 tbsp water (this is the thickener)

    Chopped green onion & sesame seeds for garnish (or whatever you wanna garnish with)


    Prep the sauce:

    Combine water, orange juice, lemon juice, rice vinegar, coconut aminos, zest, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, and Sriracha into a pan and bring to a boil

    Whisk in your thickener (water & cornstarch mix) until smooth and leave on medium high heat while you get the cauli ready

    Mix it every few minutes to make sure you have a thick, syrup like consistency - once it's there, turn the heat off

    Prep the crispy cauli:

    Preheat oven to 450ºF

    In a bowl, whisk flour, water, garlic powder, and salt until smooth. You want a thick, sticky batter Toss cauliflower into batter, making sure to coat each piece completely

    Place battered cauli pieces on a parchment lined baking sheet - make sure the pieces don't touch

    Bake for 10 minutes, flip the pieces, and bake for another 10 minutes - or until golden

    Let cool for 5 minutes


    Toss the cauli in the orange sauce right before serving

    WARNING: if you toss and wait before serving, you will have gummy cauli instead of crispy cauli

    Garnish and serve with your favorite rice

    Vicious Variations:

    Swap the OJ for veggie broth, skip the zest, and add a tbsp of toasted sesame oil for a solid sesame glaze. mmmmmmm... sesame "chicken" *drool*

    If you have leftover veggies, sauce, and rice, I highly recommend using it for fried rice

    Sound Mate:

    Pallbearer - Sorrow and Extinction

    Slow and sludgy. Just like a swap monster walking through this sticky ass sauce.
