Korean BBQ Style Cauliflower Lettuce Wraps! Crispy roasted cauliflower tossed in a sweet and sticky Korean BBQ sauce, all topped with chives, peanuts, and spicy mayo. YUM.


Scale

Ingredients

Cauliflower Lettuce Wraps:

  • 68 cups small cauliflower florets (1 large or 2 small heads)
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • butter lettuce cups
  • crushed peanuts
  • minced chives
  • spicy mayo (see notes)

Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1-inch knob fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sambal oelek (or a spicy chile paste, or sriracha – use less for a milder sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch

Instructions

  1. Roast the cauliflower: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Toss the cauliflower with a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt. Roast for 30 minutes.
  2. Make the sauce: Blend everything in a food processor or blender until smooth. Simmer in a saucepan over low heat until it thickens slightly.
  3. Cauli meets sauce: Pour sauce directly onto the roasting pan – just enough to get the cauliflower nice and saucy. Toss gently to combine.
  4. Make it pretty: Arrange the sauced up cauliflower in lettuce cups. Top with extra sauce, crushed peanuts, chives, and a drizzle of spicy mayo. Mwah!

Notes

Spicy mayo: mix about 1/4 cup mayo with a squirt of sriracha! Thin it out as necessary, and adjust to taste. That’s it.

For the sauce: you can also just mince and whisk everything by hand, but I find it easier to use the food processor!

This is great with additional protein if you want to make it more substantial. I like it with ground chicken, turkey, or tofu.
