For the Cauliflower:
I head of cauliflower, cut into florets
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced

For the Sauce:

1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook 2 minutes until softened. Add the garlic, stirring for 30 seconds.

2. Add the ginger, pineapple, rice vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce and brown sugar. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring, about 5 minutes.

3. In a small bowl, mix the water and the cornstarch until smooth. Add to the sauce and bring to a boil. Cook for 1 minute and turn off the heat. Set aside until ready to eat.

Add the pineapple juice and cook covered another 10 minutes. (Go by the texture of the cauliflower, not the time because it will depend on how soft you like it!)

2. Pour the sauce over the cauliflower and serve.
