Baked Cauliflower can make the best substitute for ‘Chicken’ in this popular Asian Recipe. With a sweet and sticky sauce that’s bursting with taste, this savory Vegan Sesame Chicken will be positive to be a brand new favourite!
I was out purchasing with my wife a number of weeks in the past, and we walked past a single of those Asian Buffet Restaurants – the “All You Can Eat” ones……. And there, taped to the front window was a menu showcasing some of their much more common recipes.

Wait a minute… Sesame Chicken? Could there be a Vegan Sesame Chicken in the future?
Now why haven’t I converted that recipe but? It’s an additional one of my wife’s favorite take-out meals! So I snapped a photograph of the menu with my trusty Smartphone so I wouldn’t fail to remember…..and …..
Quickly forgot about it.
Yeah… that takes place more times than I care to admit. Shush….
But clearly….. I remembered that photo this weekend due to the fact, properly – HERE is the new recipe. Better late than by no means…..proper? MY model of Vegan Sesame Chicken, and in accordance to my wife and daughter….. it’s one more keeper.
The sauce for this recipe is what tends to make it so good. It’s just sweet and sticky ample to remind us of Sesame Chicken, without all the refined sugar typically utilised in restaurants. And just a tablespoon or two of Tahini will include that yummy Sesame Taste without including a ton of oil.
In a little saucepan, mix ¾ cup of Veggie Broth, 1 Tbs Rice Wine Vinegar, 3 Tbs Molasses, two Tbs Soy Sauce, and one Tbs Tahini. Stir in ½ tsp Garlic Powder, ¼ tsp Ground Ginger, and 1 Tbs Toasted Sesame Seeds as effectively. Stir till bubbly. Make a slurry of 1 Tbs Corn Starch and one Tbs Hot Water and stir this into the sauce to thicken. Remove from heat and set aside.
Preheat your oven to 450 ° F. Clean and chop a tiny head of Cauliflower into bite sized pieces.
To make your batter, combine one cup flour, two tsp Garlic Powder, 1 Tbs Toasted Sesame Seeds, and ¼ tsp Salt and ¼ Pepper. Stir another tablespoon of Tahini into one cup of Unsweetened Almond Milk, and pour into the flour mixture to make a thick batter.
Whisk properly to mix all the substances and then 1 by one, dip your Cauliflower pieces into the batter to coat. Place them on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for twenty-30 minutes or right up until golden brown.
At this stage, how you assembly your dish is up to you….. I mixed the ‘chicken’ and the sauce together in my big wok so that every thing was nicely coated, but that’s an additional pan to clean.
I suppose you could also arrange the cauliflower on your plate and just spoon the sauce in excess of the best. Your selection.
Serve more than White or Brown Rice and garnish with chopped Green Onions and extra Sesame Seeds if preferred. This dish goes excellent with a side of steamed Broccoli.
As constantly – let me know what you believe. I Love the remarks so keep them coning.
Take pleasure in!
