Prep time 15mins
Cook time 39mins
Serves or Makes: 2-4


For the Cauliflower Coating:

  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1/ 2 cup white rice flour
  • 3 tablespoons potato starch, divided
  • 1/ 2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/ 4 teaspoon pink Himalayan sea salt
  • 1/ 4 teaspoon chili powder, or a pinch of cayenne
  • 1/ 2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

For the Sauce:

  • 1/ 3 cup Annie's Organic Asian Sesame Dressing
  • 1/ 3 cup maple syrup, or honey
  • 1 teaspoon sweet chili sauce, or sriracha
  • 1/ 4 teaspoon pink Himalayan sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon potato starch, or cornstarch

For Garnish:

  • Salt, as needed
  • Black pepper, as needed
  • 1/ 4 cup green onions, diced


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 425˚F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Step 2

    Whisk together rice flour, 3 Tablespoons of potato starch, garlic, salt, and chili powder. Add water and sesame oil. Stir until well incorporated and coating is smooth. Dip the cauliflower florets in the coating mixture and give the cauliflower a little shake before you put it on the baking pan to reduce excessive coating. The coating thickens quickly. Place the cauliflower on the baking pan with space between each cauliflower floret. If you don’t have a large enough pan, use two pans.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 28 minutes. During the last 10 minutes of the cauliflower baking time, stir together Annie’s Asian Sesame Dressing, maple syrup, sweet chili sauce (or sriracha), minced garlic, salt, and starch.

  • Step 4

    After taking the baked cauliflower out of the oven, let them cool slightly, then add the baked florets to the Asian Sesame sauce mixture. Gently stir and coat each floret completely with the sesame sauce. Place the cauliflower back on the baking sheet. Drizzle the remaining sauce over the cauliflower.

  • Step 5

    Put the cauliflower back in the oven for 9 to 11 minutes. Watch closely and don’t let the sauce burn. It will bubble and boil around each floret.

  • Step 6

    Let cool for a few minutes before serving.

  • Step 7

    Season the cauliflower and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds. Annie’s Asian Sesame Dressing already has sesame seeds in it, so adding extra sesame seeds is optional!
