By Executive Chef Jeff King

Today I will share with you my recipe for kungpao cauliflower bites. They are certainly a favourite around the clubhouse. You won’t miss getting takeout when you have this recipe at home!

Kung Pao Sauce:

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 cup hoisin
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup sesame oil
  • 1/8 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp. chopped garlic
  • 1 tbsp. chopped ginger
  • 2 tbsp. chopped green onion (white parts only)
  • 2 tbsp sugar 

Place everything in a small pot and mix together well with a whisk. Turn heat on medium and simmer for 5 minutes. The sauce will thicken quickly. Do not cook the sauce on high heat as it will burn fast.

Cauliflower Batter:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. baking powder

Place flour, cornstarch, milk and baking powder in a mixing bowl and whisk together till smooth.

Next you are going to dip the cauliflower florets in batter and deep fry till golden. Then toss in the kung pal sauce while the cauliflower is still hot. Garnish with crushed chilli flakes, chopped scallions and toasted cashews.

Serve with rice or by itself. This will for sure be a meal your whole family will enjoy.

Happy cooking!
