Perfect for anyone who eat snacks or simply love orange chicken.  Asian Orange Sesame Cauliflower is perfect to eat during lunch and even dinner.  It doesn’t takes a long time to make it as well.  One Love One Kitchen is the original author of this post, I am honor to have an opportunity to have her a guest in my blog.

This is the kind of recipe that you and your kids will enjoy doing in the kitchen as well.  Most of the ingredients that you need on this recipe might be in your pantry already.  So you don’t really have to go anywhere and worry about buying them. If you are like me who likes stocking up a lot of food in the house.  Then you are good to go, if you want to make this healthier you can use olive oil to fry.

Ingredients
  • 1 medium size Cauliflower cut into florets
  • cup water
  • cup cornstarch plus 1 tsp
  • cup flour
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 4 gloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup greens onions sliced
  • 1 orange zest only
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp vinegar
  • ¼ cup orange juice from the zested orange
  • vegetable oil for frying
Servings: People
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, whisk together the water, ⅓ cup of corn starch, the flour, the sesame seeds, and 1 tablespoon of the oil. Set aside.
  2. In a sauce pan, over medium heat, combine the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, minced garlic, green onions, orange zest and juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, and vinegar. Bring to a slight boil.
  3. Stir 1 tablespoon of cornstarch into 1 tablespoon of water until dissolved. Whisk into the sauce and reduce heat to a very lower simmer.
  4. Next, heat the vegetable oil in a deep pot to 375 degrees. (You can also use a deep fryer if you have one.)
  5. Coat each cauliflower floret in the flour mixture.
  6. Carefully place each floret into the hot oil. Fry each piece until golden brown - about 3 minutes. Remove from the oil and allow to drain on a paper towel lined baking sheet.
  7. Once all of the pieces are fried, increase the temperature of the oil to 385 degrees and re-fry the nuggets of cauliflower for another 30-60 seconds. This will provide a deeper color and a better crunch. This step is completely optional!
  8. Lastly, plate the cauliflower and spoon the thick, hot sauce over top. Garnish with some sesame seeds and thinly sliced green onions. Serve immediately.
