Chinese Inspired Baked Cauliflower
Updated: Feb 22, 2021
I don’t like to generalize Asian food into one category. Sure this is Asian Fusion, but I used hoisin sauce, which is mainly used in Chinese cuisine. India, Turkmenistan, China, Laos, South Korea are all in Asia but they don’t have the same food culture. So let’s stay woke and stop grouping foods into one category. Thank you for coming to my ted talk and let’s get to this recipe! You don't want to miss out on this one.
