Crispy Orange Cauliflower | Vegan Richa
You don’t need me to tell you about Richa’s natural talent to not only create some of the most beautiful vegan recipes on the internet but also how she is one of the kindest souls walking on this planet. But I’m going to anyway. I’m a huge Richa fan and I find myself constantly inspired by her. So because of that I wanted to create for her one my most tasty dinner recipes to date. 
I might create recipes that are gluten, egg, and dairy-free but I by no means claim to always be healthy with the way I choose to make said recipes. Sometimes, for one who is limited in what they can eat, it’s kind of nice to be able to eat those foods similar to what you once remembered it tasting like. Good ol’ fried Chinese food is no exception. Sometimes a girl has gotta splurge…
Crispy Orange Cauliflower Glutenfree Vegan
Nothing is better for the body, mind, and soul than a fried vegetable. At least that is the truth according to me. And let me tell you, this is one fried dinner that will not disappoint (it’s ridiculously good!) Here’s to feeling better, friend!

  2. While you are doing this, heat up a skillet with 1/2 c. oil on medium/high heat. Make sure it has been properly heated.
  3. Dip each small floret into the batter and make sure each piece is entirely covered.
  4. Fry in oil until completely browned. * or Bake at 425 degrees F / 220ºc for 25 to 30 minutes. Add more flour to the batter to make it thick if needed
  5. Allow to drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
Orange Sauce:
  1. In a clean skillet, heat oil and garlic for 1 minute.
  2. Add green onions, zest and juice. Cook another 1 minute.
  3. Add soy sauce and vinegar and bring to a boil. Toss in crispy cauliflower into the skillet and coat thoroughly. Keep on the pan briefly.
  4. Place on top of rice.
Orange Sauce Drizzle:
  1. In that same skillet, throw in the remainder ingredients and bring to a boil for just 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  2. Drizzle over orange cauliflower and rice.
