Roast the cauliflower for 25 minutes, flipping the florets over after 15 minutes. While the cauliflower is roasting, heat the sesame oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and ginger and sauté for 2 minutes. Add the orange juice, sugar, rice vinegar, liquid aminos, orange zest, and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil and then adjust the heat to medium-low, stirring occasionally. Whisk the water and arrowroot together and then add to the orange sauce, whisking until combined. Cook for 2 to 3 more minutes until the sauce has thickened and coats the back of a spoon. When the cauliflower is out of the oven, put it in the pan with the orange sauce and toss until well coated.
