Orange Cauliflower Bowl

Here in Utah, the weather can’t decide if it’s Spring or Winter! In Southern Utah, it was snowing this morning. It’s crazy! Deep down in my soul I know it’s Spring and that makes me want to create dishes with fresh ingredients. That’s how the Orange Cauliflower bowl came to be! You won’t even miss the chicken!

It’s so crunchy and full of flavor! If you are trying to sneak veggies into your families diet, this will work!

  4. 1 cup seltzer water( we used S. Pellegrino, mineral water)
  5. 1 1/2 cups flour, plus 1/2 cup to dredge the apples
  6. 1 teaspoon salt
  7. 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  8. 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  9. 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
  10. FOR THE SAUCE
  11. 1/2 cup chicken stock
  12. 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  13. 3 tablespoons sugar
  14. 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  15. 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  16. 3 cloves garlic, minced
  17. 2 teaspoons orange zest
  18. 2 teaspoons Sriracha, or more, to taste
  19. 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  20. 1 tablespoon cornstarch
Instructions
  1. In a large saucepan of 2 cups water, cook rice according to package instructions; set aside.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium high heat until temperature reaches 375 degrees F.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, seltzer, 1 1/2 cups of flour, salt and cream of tartar. Pour 1/2 cup flour into a pie tin.
  4. Working in batches, dip cauliflower into flour and then the egg mixture, allowing excess to drip off.
  5. Add cauliflower to the Dutch oven, 5 or 6 at a time, and cook until evenly golden and crispy, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  6. In a large saucepan over medium low heat, combine chicken stock, orange juice, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, orange zest, Sriracha, ginger and cornstarch. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in cauliflower.
  7. Serve immediately with rice, garnished with sesame seeds, if desired.
