So this happened. This is totally my new favorite thing.
The green bits are snow peas fried in sesame oil with slivered almonds and sesame seeds, with soy sauce on.
But the red stuff …. Oh, the red stuff …. That’s barbecued cauliflower. Yes, cauliflower, and is it ever good!
You cut the cauliflower into florets (or, if you’d rather, slices). Mix flour, water, and spices (I use Jane’s Krazy Mixed-Up Salt, of course, because I love that stuff). Coat the cauliflower pieces in that, spread them on a greased baking pan, rolling them around to coat them in oil, and bake them at 550F until they start to brown. The recipe I read online said 15 minutes, but it took mine closer to 30 minutes in the toaster oven. THEN roll them in barbecue sauce; you can make your own, but I use Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey Barbecue Sauce, because yes. Broil that for maybe 5 minutes, longer if you like your bbq charred.
OMG, it’s so good!
So, if I tell you I’m practically vegetarian and often vegan, don’t cry for me, Argentina, ’cause I’m eatin’ GOOD.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character has to learn to eat in a different way that they’re used to. Jane, you should have fun with that. ~grin~
