served with some rice 🍚 What’s your favourite vegetable to cook with? For me its probably cauliflower because it’s so versatile and absorbs flavour so well I use it as a base in a lot of my recipes as you probably would’ve already noticed 👀

So I made these from scratch using (of course) cauliflower before baking them and then coating the balls in homemade teriyaki sauce. Enjoyed this with a side of rice of course. Sharing my easy teriyaki sauce recipe below!
Homemade Teriyaki Sauce
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce*
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup + 1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp minced ginger (optional)
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp cornstarch + 2 tbsp room temperature water
*Note: If you have regular soy sauce, feel free to lessen to 1/4 cup and taste as you go since it can get a little salty if using regular soy sauce.
In a bowl, mix the corn starch and water.
Add in the rest of the ingredients. Mix.
Pour the mixture into a saucepan and leave to boil, stirring occasionally.
Leave to simmer until the sauce thickens from the cornstarch, around 7 minutes.
Turn off heat and set aside to use for the fried rice or other dishes. I store mine in a bottle and store it in the refrigerator for future use.
Here’s what you’ll need for the balls:
1 medium head (600g) cauliflower
2 cups cooked brown rice, feel free to sub with black or red rice
1 cup breadcrumbs, or sub with more oats for gluten-free
1/2 cup instant oatmeal grits or processed oats*
1/2 tbsp + 1 tsp salt
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
Canola or other neutral oil, for cooking
