cost per recipe: $7.57

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large head cauliflower, trimmed and cut into florets (about 8 cups)
  • 1 cup Swanson® Crafted Roasted Chicken Broth
  • 1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated peeled ginger root
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha hot chili sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 green onion, sliced (about 1/4 cup)


  • Tips

    • Recipe Note: The sauce mixture is delicious cooked with chicken!  Follow the recipe as shown, substituting 1 1/2 pounds skinless boneless chicken breast strips for the cauliflower.  Serve the cooked chicken mixture over hot cooked rice.
  • Step 1

    Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over high heat.  Add the cauliflower and cook for 5 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring often.  Add 1 cup broth and heat to a boil, stirring to scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.

  • Step 2

    Stir the remaining 1/2 cup broth, the soy sauce, maple syrup, rice vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, sriracha and cornstarch in a small bowl.  Add the broth mixture to the skillet and cook and stir for 4 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender and the sauce is thickened.  Sprinkle the cauliflower mixture with the green onions before serving.
