INGREDIENTS

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1/2 tsp Chinese 5 spice
  • 1⁄2 tablespoon garlic chili paste
  • 1 cup Unsweetened Creamer
  • 1 cup cooked noodles of your choice
  • 1⁄4 cup soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

METHOD

To begin, start by marinating your cauliflower with cornstarch, creamer, chili flakes and Chinese five spice. Set aside.

Next, take your minced onions and minced garlic and sweat out with a drizzle of olive oil - about 3-4 minutes. Add your cauliflower in and let it sauté for another 10 minutes.

Add in your soy sauce, black soy sauce, garlic chili paste and whole dried chiles and let everything mix together. Once everything is incorporated, add in your veggies; snow peas, bell pepper and green onions.

The last step is to add in your cooked noodles, mix well and serve!
