This recipe is almost an exact replicate as Sticky Sesame Cauliflower.  I had never really messed around with cauliflower too much in the past, outside of using it as mashed cauliflower, despite my awareness at how beautifully adaptable it is, as well as nutritious. I was a little disappointed by the “breading” result, and will try and work on some adaptations in the meantime, it tasted perfect so that was the least of my concerns.
