“This recipe is a take on a dish served at a NY restaurant. The dish is seasoned with both Asian chili paste and Chili Sauce (Heinz or similar brand). The red chili paste gives the dish some heat and the chili sauce provides a sharp tomato flavor. The recipe suggests that this dish be served warm, not hot.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot of boiling water, cook the cauliflower until crisp-tender, 5 minutes. Drain in a colander, then plunge into a bowl of ice water until cooled. Drain very well. This can be done 1 day ahead.
  2. In a medium skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and saute until golden, 6 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until the onion is lightly browned about 1 minute. Add the coconut milk. When it boils, reduce the heat to medium. Stir in the ginger, chili sauce, fish sauce and the chili paste.
  3. Add the cauliflower and saute until heated through, 2-3 minutes. Let the cauliflower sit briefly to serve warm, not hot.
