STICKY CAULIFLOWER

THE PERFECT PLANT BASED CHINESE FOOD.......


I love greasy Chinese take out! It was a Friday night ritual in my newlywed life. There is something just so nice about a plate of take out, a movie, and a Pepsi (the only time I give my self liberty to freely drink soda!).

Chinese food is known to be pretty meat heavy, but this recipe is all about the veggies. It is reminiscent of a merge between General Tso's chicken and Orange chicken. You will literally want to lick the bowl after eat this meal!

I love to pair this dish with rice and my garlic & ginger roasted broccoli (recipe coming soon!).
