Sesame Glazed Cauliflower

I was slightly skeptical about this cauliflower recipe, but it is easily one of my favorites now! I can't wait to make it again. I could eat a big plate of these for dinner, no problem!

For the sauce:

½ c light soy sauce
¼ c honey
½ tbsp grated fresh ginger
1 tbsp sesame oil
¼ c rice vinegar
1-2 sliced scallions
1 tbsp sesame seeds
For the cauliflower:
One large head cauliflower
½ c flour
½ c milk
½ tsp garlic powder
Optional additional sesame seeds and/or scallions for garnish, if desired

For the sauce:
Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Set aside.
For the cauliflower:
Preheat your oven to 450°F, and spray a baking sheet with oil or cooking spray. Cut the cauliflower into florets. The smaller they are, the faster they will cook and softer they will get.

Whisk together the remaining ingredients in a bowl. 
Toss the cauliflower in the batter until thoroughly coated. Arrange the cauliflower on the baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until slightly less done than you want them. 
Remove from the oven and pour the sauce over the cauliflower. 
Return to oven for another 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and gently flip and toss the cauliflower in the sauce on the sheet. Return to the oven for another 5 minutes.

Place the cauliflower on a serving plate or bowl, and if desired, sprinkle with some additional scallions and/or sesame seeds. 
If desired, pour any remaining sauce off of the baking sheet into a bowl for dipping.
