Total Time: 40 minutes



  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (370°F).
  • Use about 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to coat the bottom of a large roasting pan.
  • Stir almond milk, buckwheat flour, salt and baking powder together in small bowl. Dip cauliflower florets in mixture to coat, shaking off any excess batter. Arrange in a single layer in roasting pan.
  • Bake 10 minutes.
  • While cauliflower bakes, combine tamari, maple syrup, rice vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, garlic and sriracha in a small saucepan. Place over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Allow to simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Stir cornstarch and water together in a small container until cornstarch is fully dissolved. Add to sauce mixture and stir to blend. Remove from heat.
  • Remove cauliflower from oven and flip. Lightly brush florets with remaining tablespoon of oil. Return to oven and bake 5 minutes more, until they begin to sizzle and lightly crisp.
  • Remove from oven and pour sauce over florets. Return to oven and bake 4-5 minutes more, just until sauce becomes very sticky and coats florets.
  • Serve over rice and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
