Preparation

  • Position a rack in the top third of the oven, and heat the oven to 425°F.
  • Cut the cauliflower into quarters. Grate the florets and some of the core on the large holes of a box grater over a rimmed baking sheet. You should have about 7 cups of grated cauliflower. Toss with 1 Tbs. of the peanut oil and 1 tsp. salt, spread evenly on the sheet, and roast until golden with some dark brown bits, tossing every 15 minutes, 45 to 50 minutes total.
  • When the cauliflower is done, swirl the remaining 2 Tbs. of the peanut oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the onion and cook until soft, stirring occasionally, about 1 minute. Add the garlic and ginger, and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the tofu, edamame, and jalapeño, stirring occasionally, until warmed through, about 2 minutes. Add the bell pepper and continue to cook, about 30 seconds more. Remove from the heat. Add the cauliflower, sesame oil, vinegar, and soy sauce, and stir until combined. Season to taste with salt and soy sauce, if you like. Transfer to a serving platter, and top with the celery, scallion greens, and sesame seeds.
