I remember how much I used to love Chinese Orange Chicken when I was a kid, and how often my family and I would dine at Panda Inn and Panda Express growing up in Los Angeles. Oh how I DO NOT miss those days. It’s hard to believe how unhealthy and careless my lifestyle used to be, and how much it has changed over the years. I am grateful that I have cleared my mind, discovered a healthier lifestyle with alternatives to old favorites such as this low-fat Chinese Orange Cauliflower recipe.
I think it’s safe to say that I am obsessed with this. I told my family I had to make it 3 times to “recipe test” it, but honestly I just wanted to have this 3 times last week and still wanted to make it again. SO GOOD.
I served my Orange Cauliflower with brown rice, steamed broccoli and sugar snap peas. Feel free to serve this dish with whatever sides you’d like!
A raw alternative to brown rice is ‘Cauliflower Rice’. For that, all you need to do is roughly chop up a head of cauliflower and place it into a food processor. Pulse until it is rice like, then serve it like rice. If desired, you can squeeze the excess liquid out with a clean dish towel over the sink.
Dinner is served! What will you pair your Orange Cauliflower with?
Preheat oven to 350 F and line a large baking dish.
Wash and dry cauliflower. Remove leaves and cut into 1″ pieces.
Place the cauliflower onto the baking dish and place bake for 20 minutes.
While the cauliflower cooks, prepare the sauce. Place the remaining ingredients into a high speed blender and run until smooth.
Remove the cauliflower from the oven and cool for 10 minutes. Place it into a large bowl and evenly coat with sauce. Place back into the oven for 8 minutes.
Cool for 10 minutes, then sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds before serving.
Raw option notes: I haven’t yet made this raw, but I am almost certain that it will work and be delicious 🙂 Raw garlic is strong, so I suggest starting off with half then tasting it first. Original recipe from Feasting On Fruit.
