As a side dish, 2-3 people


  • 2 TBSP unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 TBSP hoisin sauce
  • 2 TBSP brown sugar
  • 1 TBSP dark soy sauce
  • 2 TBSP water
  • 1 TBSP grated ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • Garnish
  • Fresh greens such as bok choy leaves, Chinese cabbage or green onions
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 TBSP Roasted Japanese Sesame Oil
  • 1 TBSP low sodium soy sauce
  • 4-6 seeded and stemmed dried red chilies
  • Baked Cauliflower Sauce Topping
  • 3 TBSP low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 TBSP cornstarch
  • 4 cups cauliflower florets
  • 2 TBSP Koroneiki Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  • Heat a large wok (or frying pan) over low heat. Add the dried red chilies and toast until fragrant (1-2 minutes). Add the sauce to the pan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Add the baked cauliflower and toss well until all the pieces are coated.
  • While the cauliflower is roasting, prepare the sauce, using all the ingredients in the sauce section.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, spoon the cauliflower onto the parchment paper in a single-layer, and roast for 25 to 30 minutes until tender and golden colored. Turn the cauliflower about half way through the roasting period.
  • Place the cauliflower in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the Koroneiki Extra Virgin Olive Oil, corn starch and low sodium soy sauce. Pour the mixture over the cauliflower and toss well to coat.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Remove from heat and transfer the cauliflower to a serving dish.
  • Garnish with the toasted sesame seeds, green onions, or greens of your choice.
