Crispy cauliflower bites covered in a delicious homemade Teriyaki sauce is always a crowd pleaser. It's one of those recipes that wins over the toughest food critics. I've made it time and time again and it is probably the most requested recipe among my family and friends. It's perfect alone or with a side of rice and veggies or in my personal favorite....tacos.
Vegan Teriyaki Cauliflower is probably my most requested recipes among my family and friends so I make it pretty often I don't feel like making a bunch of side items to go along with the cauliflower so I just throw them in flour tortillas and top them with tons of scallions and diced red bell pepper. Making the cauliflower is super easy. You just batter and fry the cauliflower and toss them in a homemade teriyaki sauce. Once the cauliflower is done you put them into flour tortillas and top with green onions, sesame seed and diced red bell pepper!
Here's a few cooking tips:
Make the sauce first - Whenever you fry something and want to put a sauce on it you need to make sure to make the sauce first and give it a little time to cool down. If you pour hot sauce on hot food it will become soggy and the batter will get kind of mushy.
Don't overcrowd the pan: - Whenever you fry something you need to make sure there is plenty of room in the pan. The more food you add to the pan the lower the temperature will become. This will create soggy food so make sure to give everything room.
Oil matters - I never deep fry anything but I do pan fry from time to time. It's important to use an oil with a high smoke point. Using vegetable oil or avocado oil are my top choices.
Skip the store bought sauce - Making the sauce from scratch makes all the difference in the world. It's incredibly easy and delicious. You can store any leftovers in a jar in your fridge for months.
