  • 1 cauliflower, cut into bite size pieces
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • ⅓ cup Chinook Honey
  • ¼ cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Chinese 5 Spice
  • 1 TB Minced garlic
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ cup water, cold
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch


  1. Preheat over to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Wash and pat dry the head of cauliflower.
  2. Remove stem and cut the cauliflower into 1-2 inch bite sized pieces.
  3. In a small bowl, add the eggs and whisk to create an egg wash. In a separate bowl, add the panko crumbs.
  4. In small batches, dip the cauliflower pieces into the egg wash and let any excess egg drip off. Add the egg washed cauliflower, a few pieces at a time into the panko crumbs. Toss the cauliflower generously in the crumbs to ensure each piece is evenly coated. Place on the baking sheet ensuring pieces aren't touching.
  5. Bake on centre rack for 20-30 minutes or until panko crumbs begin to brown and a fork can be inserted into largest piece. Remove from oven and place in a large bowl.
  6. While cauliflower is baking, in a small saucepan, mix together Liquid Honey, soy sauce, minced garlic, 5 spice, and onion powder. In a small cup, add the cornstarch and cold water and mix until cornstarch is dissolved. Add the cornstarch water mixture to the saucepan. Mix well. Cover and cook over medium heat until sauce begins to bubble and thicken - about five minutes. Add more water if too thick. Remove from heat.

    Pour thickened honey garlic mixture over baked cauliflower pieces and mix well to evenly coat.
