Preheat oven to 375.
Chop cauliflower into small bite sized pieces. Put cauliflower in a large bowl.
Pour almond milk over cauliflower florets, toss to coat evenly.
In a small bowl, combine flour, bread crumbs, red pepper & garlic seasoning, onion powder, and parsley flakes.
Sprinkle flour mixture over cauliflower florets and toss to coat evenly.
Spread cauliflower onto a non-stick baking sheet in a thin even layer. Try not to crowd them too much.
Bake at 375 for approximately 30 minutes, turning halfway. Poke cauliflower with a fork, if it is tender and easy to break, they are done. If there is still some resistance, put them back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes.
Make the sweet chilli heat sauce (directions below) while the cauliflower cooks.
Heat a small saucepan over medium heat.
Combine soy sauce, apricot jam, pineapple juice, sesame oil, red pepper & garlic seasoning, and sriracha. Whisk until fully combined.
Whisk in cornstarch. Start with 1 tsp, add more as required. Be patient! It might take a minute or two to fully combine and thicken!
In a large bowl, combine cooked cauliflower bites with sauce. Pour the sauce in a bit at a time, while tossing.
Optional: if you want a saucey and sticky cauliflower bite, serve immediately. If you want a more dry texture (like ours shown in the pictures) put sauced cauliflower bites back in the oven for another 5 minutes.
*I used Bonne Maman Apricot Jam, you can sub for a similar flavour such as orange if you prefer. The apricot is sweet but not too strong / offensive in flavour so it works perfectly in this sauce.
**Try using more sriracha for a spicier sauce. I can’t handle much heat so I don’t use very much!
***Use more or less cornstarch depending on how thick you like your sauce. Try adding 1 tsp for a thicker sauce. You can thin the sauce out by adding a bit (1/4 cup) of water.
I tossed the cooked cauliflower in sauce, then baked them in the oven for an additional 5 minutes to get a crispier (vs. saucey) texture. You can omit the last step and serve it sticky and saucey!
