A crunchy-sweet twist on a take-out favorite. These General Tso’s Grilled Cauliflower Kabobs are on the healthier side and is pretty appropriate for a vegan hors d’oeuvre or snack. Cauliflower florets are tossed in a soy, chili and oil marinade, then grilled on skewers and finished with a spicy savory-sweet sauce and toasted sesame seeds for a crunchy note.

1. Preheat your grill. Place cauliflower florets in a large mixing bowl with 2 tablespoons water. Microwave for 5-7 minutes to precook. Allow to cool down and transfer to a Ziplok bag.

2. Whisk the canola oil, corn starch, chili and soy sauce together in a small bowl. Pour over the top of the cauliflower in the plastic bag and toss well to coat. Marinate for 20 minutes.

3. In the meantime, prepare the sauce: Heat the sesame oil in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the ginger and garlic and stir fry for 1 or 2 minutes. Add all remaining ingredients (soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, vegetable stock, sriracha, cornstarch) and whisk to combine. Bring to a low boil; simmer for 20-30 minutes, until sauce is thickened.

4. Remove cauliflower florets from the bag and thread skewers and grill until tender and golden. When cauliflower is nearly done, brush with the sauce and grill until slightly caramelized. Transfer to a serving dish and serve immediately garnished with toasted sesame seeds and chopped scallion greens and more sauce on the side. Enjoy!
