  • To make the cauliflower, combine 1/4 cup cornstarch, water, and salt and pepper together in a medium bowl. Place the panko bread crumbs on a separate plate. Toss the cauliflower florets into the cornstarch mixture and then into the panko breadcrumbs. Place the florets onto the baking sheet.
  • When all the cauliflower has been coated, place the baking sheet into the hot oven and bake for 30-40 minutes until the cauliflower is tender in the middle when pierced with a fork
  • Meanwhile, add all the ingredients for the sauce into a small pot and whisk well. Place over a medium heat and bring the sauce to the boil. Now lower the heat and continue to simmer for 5-7 minutes until the sauce thickens.
  • Remove the baked cauliflower from the oven and place it onto a serving dish. Pour over the orange sauce and garnish with sesame seeds to serve.
