I’m just going to come right out and say it – This Vegetarian Orange Chicken Cauliflower is on the top of my list for all time favorite recipes.
By no means am I becoming a vegetarian, I love meat way too much for that. But every once in a while I like to participate in those “Meatless Mondays” that everyone’s always talkin’ about. Plus saving a few calories is never a bad thing either…
The trick with this Orange Cauliflower is that it actually tastes like the legit Orange Chicken from Panda Express or any other fancy Chinese take-out.
The cauliflower is lightly battered and then wok-fried to give it that slightly crisp outer coating with tender crisp insides.
The sauce… oh mama…
The sauce is beautifully fragranced with orange zest and given just a hint spice to compliment, but not over power, the sticky sweetness.
If you love the taste of Orange Chicken, you’re going to love this. If you close your eyes when you take a bite into the perfectly cooked cauliflower it will almost seem like you’re eating chicken.
I love the power of cauliflower!
Did you know that cauliflower is supposed to be a “trending ingredient” for 2014? You’ll probably see a lot of it this year, and this is a great way to try it out in a whole new way!
If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go marry a head of cauliflower and have cauliflower babies.
This is getting awkward isn’t it? I’ll stop now.
But seriously, this Vegetarian Orange Chicken Cauliflower was a major hit with my family and I know you and your family will love it too!
