Bang Bang Cauliflower

My £1 bang bang cauliflower has all the familiar Chinese-style sweet and spicy flavours but is a delicious and healthy alternative to those expensive takeaways.

To make 1 portion


Handful of cauliflower florets

1 garlic clove, sliced

Pinch of dried chilli flakes

Sesame oil

¼ cup of passata

2 tbsp honey

Pinch of sesame seeds

½ spring onion, sliced

Salt and pepper


Grab a saucepan, throw in the cauliflower florets, garlic and chilli flakes, season with salt and pepper, then fry in a splash of sesame oil over a medium heat.

Just before the garlic starts to brown, add the passata and honey.

Simmer for 5-10 minutes until the liquid reduces and sticks to the cauliflower, adding a tiny splash of water if the sauce gets too thick.

Once the cauliflower is soft, remove the pan from the heat and serve it with a sprinkle of sesame seeds, a drizzle of sesame oil and a garnish of sliced spring onion.
