This Oven Baked Honey Soy Sesame Cauliflower is an umami rich dish, full of sticky, sweet flavours that will delight vegetarians and meat eaters alike. It is quick to prepare and then happily bakes in the oven.
When the #SundaySupper group set this week as cauliflower I wasn’t sure what to share with you, then everything went a bit wrong and this wonderful Honey Soy Sesame Cauliflower was born. Perfect for #SundaySupper and pretty much the best way I have ever found to eat cauliflower!
This cauliflower recipe is based on my Oven Baked Honey Soy Sesame Chicken, a recipe that has been on my site for a couple of years and is in dire need of a picture re-vamp. They are shockers!!!! A few weeks back I finally got around to cooking the recipe ready to taking new photos!!! Well that was the plan!
A few weeks ago, I had the chicken defrosted and was mixing up the glaze when I realised I was low on soy sauce, completely low!!! As in, tipping the bottle totally upside down and waiting for the last few drips. Even with this I only ended up with a meagre 2 tablespoons. Not enough for all the chicken, so I shelved that and used the glaze on some cauliflower that I was going to roast with rosemary for dinner. (That’s another recipe on my site that needs new photos!)
It was all change in the sprinkles and sprouts kitchen 😉 but as with so many last minute plans, it was one of the best plans!!! This cauliflower was delicious!!! Seriously delicious. More delicious that I thought cauliflower could be! I mean it is cauliflower!!!
But this was soooooo good!
I made the recipe again just to check my quantities and passed a tester pot to a friend, her feedback “OMG that cauliflower….it’s bloody amazing. It didn’t last long”
That is the sort of recipe I love!!!! Food that makes people happy.
And what is more Mr 7 ate it (and he is really not a cauliflower fan!)
So I am super happy to share this Oven Baked Honey Soy Sesame Cauliflower with you today! Below the recipe you’ll find links to all the other #SundaySupper Cauliflower recipes.
