This general tso’s cauliflower is so crispy, delicious, and spicy-sweet! And it’s just as good as the fried version, while being so much healthier! Welcome to cauliflower heaven!
You guys went absolutely crazy about the cauliflower hot wings I posted on the blog a couple of weeks ago. In just a little over a month, they became one of the most popular recipes on the blog. And this is well-deserved. They’re sooo good! The recipe for the general tso’s cauliflower is actually similar to that of the cauliflower hot wings. However, the sauce and therefore the taste is totally different! While I used spicy BBQ sauce to coat the cauliflower hot wings, this recipe calls for homemade general tso sauce made with rice vinegar, ginger, garlic, and soy sauce.
To make the general tso’s cauliflower extra crispy, I rolled them in panko bread crumbs before baking them in the oven. So yummy!
What You’ll Need for This General Tso’s Cauliflower
The ingredient list for this recipe is rather short and you probably already have the majority of the ingredients in your pantry. As always, you can find the full ingredient list and the recipe instructions in a separate recipe box underneath the text section.
- 1/2 head of cauliflower
- all-purpose flour
- unsweetened almond milk (it’s really important to use unsweetened milk for this recipe)
- panko bread crumbs
- salt and pepper
For the homemade general tso sauce you’ll need the following:
- rice vinegar
- soy sauce
- vegetable broth
- brown sugar
- tomato paste
I would really recommend using homemade general tso sauce for this recipe. It’s just soo much better than store-bought sauce and it’s also pretty easy to make. You can prepare it while the cauliflower bites are in the oven. Once the cauliflower florets are crispy (this takes about 25 minutes in the oven), you coat them with the general tso sauce. I absolutely LOVE it’s sweet and sour taste. BIG yum!! I usually serve this vegan general tso’s cauliflower with rice and sprinkle it with sesame seeds and green onions.
I hope you like this general tso’s cauliflower as much as the vegan cauliflower hot wings. Stay tuned for more vegan cauliflower recipes on the blog! I’ll post a huge roundup of vegan cauliflower recipes soon!
