"This recipe is inspired by the popular Taiwanese street food: popcorn chicken. For a vegetarian twist, I replaced the chicken with cauliflower and to make things a lot easier, there’s no deep-frying involved! The hot honey gives the cauliflower a sweet and spicy flavor. If you have some leftover, store it in an airtight jar and use on toast, in salad dressings, or as a finishing glaze to roasted vegetables or meats. To make this recipe vegan, simply substitute agave syrup or rice syrup for the honey. These crispy bites are good company for casual dinners on the couch or as a light snack at your next party."
