Cauliflower Teriyaki + Tofu Alternative


Who doesn’t love a good “boneless wing” appetizer? Endless pieces with a moist yet crisp exterior and a tender center; all marinated in your favorite sauce. Even though I’ve transitioned to plant based eating I still love this classic appetizer and don’t want to lose out on my B-dubs experience (if you know, you know). I already have a recipe for my top tier sauce option, BBQ, here & here. However, I also love a good Asian style sauce and this Teriyaki Sauce recipe is a hit.

This post is a two for one; I will show how I prepare this sauce over Cauliflower and Tofu. Both options are easy to make and the base methods are the same once you’re finished preparing your ingredients.

Let’s get straight into it.

What You Need:

For the “meat”

1 Large Head Cauliflower or 1 1/2 Pack Firm Tofu * 1 Vegan Egg Substitute (I use Just Egg (1/3 Cup) or Follow Your Heart Vegan Egg)

1 Cup Flour (White or Wheat)

Salt & Pepper to Season Flour (about 1/2-1 TBSP each or to preference)

Oil for Frying (Grapeseed or Avocado)
