kikkoman products used:


For Pineapple-Teriyaki Sauce
¼ cup Kikkoman® Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce
¾ cup pineapple juice
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

For Cauliflower
1 large egg
⅓ cup unsweetened coconut milk
¼ cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon ginger powder
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon sea salt
1 cup Kikkoman® Panko Bread Crumbs
4 cups cauliflower florets, broken into bite-sized pieces
6 tortillas

For Pineapple Salsa
1 cup finely chopped pineapple
2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon minced jalapeño
¼ teaspoon sea salt


  1. Combine teriyaki sauce, pineapple juice and brown sugar in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Once simmering, gradually whisk in flour. Reduce heat to low and continue to simmer 5-7 minutes, until sauce reduces slightly and coats the back of a spoon. Transfer to a small bowl to thicken while preparing other steps.
  2. Heat oven to 425˚F and grease a large baking sheet with cooking oil spray. Whisk together egg, coconut milk, flour, ginger, garlic, cayenne pepper and sea salt in a shallow bowl until smooth. In a separate bowl add panko bread crumbs. Holding cauliflower by the stem, dunk the florets into the batter then coat in panko. Place on baking pan. Bake cauliflower for 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes for even browning.
  3. While cauliflower bakes, stir together ingredients for pineapple salsa.
  4. Remove cauliflower from oven and transfer to a large bowl. Drizzle half of pineapple-teriyaki sauce over florets and toss to coat.
  5. Place a few cauliflower florets in each tortilla and top with pineapple salsa and an additional drizzle of sauce if desired. Enjoy warm.


Even people who love soy sauce and use it all the time are often surprised to learn what it is and how it’s made. We make ours from just four simple ingredients—water, soybeans, wheat, and salt. Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
