Vegan Cauliflower With Sticky Teriyaki Sauce

Vegan Cauliflower With Sticky Teriyaki Sauce

We usually love cauliflower in Indian cuisine but off late I have been loving it in more in combination with Asian sauces. Thanks to my stay in California US for a few years, I love how I was introduced to various flavours of different cuisines. I love to explore food and adapt it to my and family’s liking and personal preferences.

This meal comes together as so delicious and hearty and leave you wanting for more. Teriyaki sauce is a bold flavour with savoury salty and sweet flavours with loads of umami. This is one meal that’s comforting for me and takes less than 30 minutes to come together. Cauliflower gets roasted and charred in the oven while the sauce and rice is made. It’s a great meal option for all those busy days and tired evenings, and great food for lazy weekends too.

Don’t believe me still? How about giving it a try and check for yourself. The umami bomb that it is will make you fall for this recipe too.
