Wagamama’s Bang Bang Cauliflower Recipe

Bang Bang Cauliflower

Wagamama’s Bang Bang Cauliflower is my favorite side dish. I always order this delicious dish whenever I go into Wagamama. I never realized how easy it was to recreate. Thanks to Wagamama starting a great campaign going where they would share the idea of ‘Wok from Home’. Their own chefs would share the ingredients and recipes for their classic dishes so that you can make your own firecracker sauce and bang bang cauliflower at home even when they aren’t in delivering distance.

I would love to tell you that I made this recipe from the ideas in my head, but I actually took this from Wagamama’s Instagram account. If you like this recipe I am sure you are going to enjoy my Firecracker Chicken recipe.
