Honey-Garlic Cauliflower

Recipe via Delish

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 head cauliflower, chopped into bite-size florets
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • ¼ cup sliced scallions

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large baking sheet with foil.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour and cauliflower, toss until fully coated. Set up a dredging station: In one bowl, add panko breadcrumbs and in another bowl whisk eggs and add 2 tablespoons water. Dip cauliflower in beaten eggs, then panko until fully coated. Transfer to a prepared baking sheet and season generously with salt and pepper. Bake until golden and crispy, 20 to 25 minutes.

Combine soy sauce, honey, garlic, lime juice and Sriracha in a small saucepan over medium heat. When the mixture reaches a boil, reduce heat, and add the cornstarch mixture. Bring to simmer again and cook until sauce thickens, about 2 minutes.
  4. Toss cooked cauliflower in sauce until evenly coated. Return the cauliflower to baking sheet and broil for 2 minutes.
