  • 1 cup – long-grain rice
  • 4 cup – cauliflower, florets
  • Three tablespoon – oil, avocado


  • 1/2 cup – sugar
  • 1/3 cup – vinegar, cider
  • Two tablespoon – soy sauce, gluten-free
  • One teaspoon – garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon – onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon – salt
  • 1/4 cup – ketchup
  • One tablespoon – cornstarch
  • Two tablespoon – water

Serve With:

  • One stalk – green onion
  • One tablespoon – sesame seeds


  1. Cook rice as directed on package. Cover and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line baking sheet with foil.
  3. Cut cauliflower into bite-sized pieces. Add to a ziplock bag with avocado oil; shake to coat.
  4. Spread cauliflower onto a lined baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, until they become slightly browned. Switch oven to broil setting and continue cooking for 3-4 minutes.
  5. Add first seven sauce ingredients to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and cold water, allowing to dissolve fully. Pour into sauce mixture, whisk together. Continue cooking until thickened, and then reduce the heat to low.
