Calling all cauliflower lovers! No doubt you've seen cauliflower in recent months all over menus -- and we're especially big fans of the Korean Fried Cauliflower made with spicy Gochujang and a Korean pepper sauce from Moxie's in Houston.
Whisk well until smooth and free of any lumps. Keep in a bowl and keep cold in the fridge until needed.
Korean Pepper Sauce
Weigh ingredients into a small sauce pot. Bring to a slow simmer on medium heat, whisk to incorporate. Once simmering for 1 minute, remove from heat. Transfer to a small container to cool, hold for use.
Toss the cauliflower in flour to lightly dust them. Transfer the dusted cauliflower to tempura batter, then mix around to coat in batter. With a slotted spoon, lift out of the batter and gently place in hot oil. Fry for 3 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
To serve, toss cooked cauliflower with Korean Pepper Sauce and garnish with cilantro leaves.
