1. Wash and dry the cauliflower, then break into bite-sized florets and trim away the excess stems.

2. Combine the batter ingredients in a bowl using a whisk and dip the cauliflower florets making sure they are fully coated in the batter.

3. Heat 1/4 cup vegetable oil in frying pan.

4. Remove one floret from the batter at a time, gently shaking to remove any excess batter, and place in pan. Fry a few florets at a time (making sure they are not touching) and turning every couple of minutes.

5. Once lightly browned on all sides, remove from pan and place on paper towel. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until all florets have been fried.

6. Heat the toasted sesame oil in a pan, then add the garlic and ginger, and fry for a minute. Add the rest of the ingredients for the Korean sauce and simmer for a few minutes. Take the sauce off the heat and toss in the cauliflower using a spoon to coat.

7. Serve the Korean Cauliflower Bites with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and chopped spring onion.

    Please share what is Gocugang sauce (sp) and where I can buy it? I’m going to try to make this recipe tomorrow night without it because I have all the rest. I also have some Chinese Plum Sauce in the refrigerator So, I’m going to improvise. Still and all, I’d like to know what that sauce is and if I need to go to a special Asian market for it. Thank you for your time.

    1. Hi Adria. Gochujang is a spicy red chile paste. You can buy it from most Asian supermarkets. There are lots of articles on the internet that can explain the ingredients. I hope that helps!

  2. As far as I know, the common Gochujang sauce has a lot of honey in it, that’s not vegan?
    If you really want it to be 100% vegan, which I presume is the case for so vegan, one should take a good look at the ingredients and if you cannot find a vegan version: make it yourself and replace the honey with an alternative

    1. I bought a pretty expensive brand (17 dollars) at Hmart that has no honey in it.
