Serves 4-8 people


  • 1 large cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 egg whites, beaten with a fork
  • 1 cup unseasoned panko crumbs
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup low sodium tamari sauce
  • 2 tbs. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Sriracha
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbs. cornstarch
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Add the beaten egg whites and cauliflower florets to a large Ziploc bag and shake well.

In a separate Ziploc bag combine the panko crumbs, paprika, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Add the cauliflower florets and shake until coated.

Place the breaded cauliflower florets in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 - 20 minutes until lightly browned. Turn the cauliflower pieces over half way.

While baking, prepare the sauce. In a small sauce pan over medium heat, combine the sesame oil, honey, tamari, apple cider vinegar, Sriracha, and garlic powder. Bring to a boil, then lower the temperature and let simmer for 10 minutes.

In a small bowl combine the cornstarch and water and stir until the cornstarch is dissolved. Add the cornstarch mixture to the saucepan, bring to a boil and then lower the heat, and stir until the sauce gets thicker.

Drizzle the sauce over the cooked cauliflower pieces and garnish with sesame seeds.
