7. Pour the cailiflower onto a plate and then add all the other ingredients into the wok. Mix them together and then add the cailiflower into the wok again with the mixture.
8. Mix it together until the cailiflower is coated with the sauce.
9. Finally, pour it onto a plate and top with pepper.

I have not been posting much since a lot of the same recipes are made multiple times during the week. I hope there is going to be something new or I have to learn some lunch recipes.
