Sweet & Sticky Cauliflower Florets
If you like cauliflower you are going to love this recipe.
I am talking big love.
It is delicious and sticky and tasty and awesome.
I served it as part of a tapas style dinner. I also ate a little bit the next day cold from the fridge and it was still the business. I hope you might like it too.
Sticky Peanut Butter Sauce:
1/4 cup chunky peanut butter
1 tablespoon soy sauce
3 tablespoons orange marmalade
1-inch piece fresh ginger, grated
Hot water, to thin down if needed
1/2 medium head cauliflower 1/4 cup of salted peanuts
Lime wedges Fresh coriander leaves
Preheat your oven to 200.C
In a large mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, marmalade and ginger. Stir until thoroughly mixed and add in hot water (if needed) until you reach a runny consistency (like a thick tomato sauce).
Cut the cauliflower into small, evenly sized pieces.
Pour the peanut sauce mixture over the cauliflower pieces and massage it in.
Turn the florets into the bowl with the peanut sauce and mix with your hands (wearing gloves is a good option!) until every piece of cauliflower is coated in sauce.
Arrange the cauliflower pieces on a large baking tray so none overlap.
Bake for 30 minutes and then add your peanuts to the tray and continue to cook for another 15 minutes. You will want to keep an eye on the forest to ensure they cook all the way through and get crisp and sticky on the outside, without burning. It will depend a bit on their size.
Serve with coriander and lime wedges and enjoy.
