Convection Roast or Convection Bake Mode

Cauliflower certainly lends itself to many different preparations and this spicy “Kung Pao” version is one of the best. The sauce requires quite a few ingredients but if you enjoy Asian cooking they are all great ingredients to have on hand.


The addition of bacon is of course delicious but if you prefer a vegetarian version you will be just as pleased.
