Vegan Teriyaki Style Roasted Cauliflower

I was thrilled when I discovered black and white sesame seeds at the grocery store. I mean, how fun is that?! It’s funny because even though I love devouring any food, prettier food seems like it tastes 100x better. If you’re looking for a vegan dish, this is it. My newfound love for roasting cauliflower knows no bounds and this teriyaki style roasted cauliflower dish is delicious. Serve it with rice for a perfect vegan dinner for two (or one depending on how hungry you are).
