Instructions

Coat the Florets
1
  • Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Chop the cauliflower into florets. Halve any large florets.
  • Pop the florets into a mixing bowl. Add half the aioli and toss to coat. 
  • In a separate bowl, mix the breadcrumbs with ¼ tsp salt and 1 tbsp oil (double both for 4p).
  • Add the breadcrumb mix to the florets and toss to coat evenly.
Bake the Cauliflower
2
  • Pop the coated cauliflower onto a lined baking tray.
  • Arrange in a single layer—make sure it's well spaced out. 
  • When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden and crispy, 20-25 mins.

TIP: If the florets don't fit in a single spaced out layer spread them across two baking trays.

Cook Your Rice
3
  • Meanwhile, add 300ml cold salted water (double for 4p) to a medium pot with a tight-fitting lid. 
  • Stir in the rice and bring to the boil. 
  • Once boiling, lower the heat to medium and cover with the lid.
  • Cook for 12 mins, then remove the pot from the heat.
  • Keep covered for another 12 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
Prep the Veg
4
  • Meanwhile, trim the carrot then halve lengthways (no need to peel). Slice widthways into 1cm thick pieces.
  • Trim the cucumber and halve lengthways. Thinly slice widthways. 
  • Trim and thinly slice the scallion. Separate the green portions from the white.
Make the Bang Bang Sauce
5
  • Place a large pan over high heat with a drizzle of oil
  • Once hot, fry the carrot until tender, 4-5 mins.
  • Add soy sauce and the whites of the scallion and cook for 1-2 mins.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and cover to keep the veg warm. Season with salt and pepper.
  • To make the bang bang sauce, combine half the vinegar (double for 4p), the sweet chilli sauce and the remaining aioli in a bowl.
Serve and Enjoy
6
  • Fluff up the rice with a fork and divide between bowls.
  • Top with crispy cauliflower, fried veg and sliced cucumber.
  • Finish with a drizzle of bang bang sauce and a sprinkling of green scallion.
