Kung Pao Cauliflower

Reading Time: ( Word Count: )

Spicy cauliflower, edamame, and peanuts served over lemongrass rice

Short History: It is believed that Kung Pao chicken – and therefore the sauce – was named after Ding Baozhen, who was governer of the Sichuan Province, and member of the Gongbao. He loved spicy food, chicken, and peanuts, so the combination dish was named after his title as a pun after he created it. Using the character 丁 in the chinese word of the dish is also a pun based off of his name – his surname “Ding” was a moderately common Chinese surname which also can be read to mean “small cube” – just like the chicken is prepared in the traditional dish. In this version of the dish by TVT, you will recieve fiber, antioxidants, Vitamin K, magnesium, and more!
