1. To make the grilled cauliflower kabobs: Preheat your grill. Place cauliflower florets in a large mixing bowl with 2 tablespoons of water. Microwave for 5-7 minutes to precook. Allow to cool down and transfer to a Ziploc bag.

2. Whisk the canola oil, corn starch, red chili pepper flakes, 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 the grilled General Tso’s cauliflower kabobs immediately garnished with toasted sesame seeds and chopped scallion greens and more sauce on the side. Enjoy!

    Microwaving for 5-7 minutes makes the cauliflower too mushy to skewer. We microwaved for 6 minutes and had to bake it instead of grill because it would not hold up to a skewer or the grill. The sauce was amazing though.
