Justin Chapple’s riff on the Chinese-American classic, General Tso’s chicken, uses stir-fried cauliflower florets instead of deep-fried chicken, and adds Indonesian sambal oelek for a dose of heat. You can opt to use chicken broth, which will make it extra savory, or go with vegetable broth to make the dish vegetarian.
