Orange Cauliflower

Orange Cauliflower

So how has your week been? Its Thursday, and I have had an extremely productive/busy kinda work week. Lots happening at Eaterspot - the giveaway is in day 2 and great to see over 350 folks have entered thus far! :) Good times
If you have been following EaterSpot's facebook page for a few months atleast, you would have seen the above picture of Orange cauliflower. K loves Orange Chicken and I had a week of Vegan meals, so I decided to make this ... He actually didn't mind the chicken substitute and loved it that he ate so much and we didn't have much left over
This recipe has a few steps to follow, hopefully my instructions are easy to understand!
