1 medium cauliflower head rinsed & separated into florets chopped in half
3/4 cup white flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 cup + 4 tbsp water
1/2 cup pineapple chunks
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
2 tbsp oil
*you will need enough vegetable oil for deep frying

*mix together in a bowl:
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
6 tbsp rice vinegar
4 tbsp sugar

– soak florets in salt water for 15 minutes
– in large bowl, mix together,
flour, cornstarch & water to make a batter
– dip floret pieces into the batter & deep fry until crispy (make sure your oil is not insanely hot as you want to give the cauliflower time to cook & not just a crispy exterior shell after a minute of frying) it should take about 6-7 minutes to cook
– once all pieces are crisp, set them aside
– In a pan, heat 2tbsp of oil (medium-high heat)
– Stir in bell peppers & pineapples for 1 minute
– stir in sauce mixture & turn your stove heat to high
– Stir until bubbles begin to form & sauce is reduced & sticky
– mix in florets until they are all coated with sauce (do this process quickly to maintain the crisp of your cauliflower)
* for extra crisp, once sauce is applied, spread your cauliflower pieces onto a baking pan lined with parchment paper and put it in the oven on broil for 5 minutes but watch them carefully so they do not burn
*This dish is excellent with steamed jasmine rice
