Ginger-Hoisin Roasted Whole Cauliflower

This roasted cauliflower is savory-sweet and a non-spicy play on kung pao, the popular Sichuan stir-fry. The optional fresh chili garnish adds some spice as well as bright color. If you’re looking for even more burn, sprinkle the cauliflower with red pepper flakes, as well.

Sad to report this as the first Milk Street recipe I haven't enjoyed. Incredibly salty and too sweet as well. It looked beautiful, but was not good. Perhaps the salt amount was incorrectly printed as 2 teaspoons?

The first of what I hope will be many successful Milk Street recipes. I will definitely spice it up more next time!
