Sweet-n-Sour Cauliflower



1 cup water

⅓ cup brown sugar

⅓ cup rice vinegar

¼ cup ketchup

2 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce

1 Tbsp plus 1 tsp cornstarch


1 med head cauliflower, finely chopped

¼ cup low-fat milk

⅓ cup cornstarch

½ tsp salt


3 Tbsp canola oil


Combine the water, sugar, vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce, and cornstarch in a bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.

Place cauliflower in a large bowl. Add the milk and toss well. Add the cornstarch, salt, and pepper and toss to coat.

Heat the oil in a wide, heavy-bottomed skillet over high heat. Add half of the cauliflower and cook 5 to 6 minutes, until crispy. Repeat with remaining cauliflower.

Add all of the cauliflower back into the pan. Add the sauce and stir to coat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer 2 to 3 minutes, until cauliflower is tender. Serve hot.
