Remove leaves from cauliflower head, core, and cut into bite-sized florets. Combine miso paste and soy sauce in a large mixing bowl. Add cauliflower florets to bowl and toss thoroughly to coat.
Roast the Cauliflower
Move cauliflower to prepared baking sheet and season with ¼ tsp. pepper. Wipe bowl clean. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until browned and tender. Remove from oven and allow to cool at least 5 minutes.
Prepare Remaining Ingredients
Cut end off romaine, halve lengthwise, then coarsely chop. Peel and mince shallot.
Make the Dressing
In same bowl used to marinate cauliflower, add sesame oil, seasoned rice vinegar, half the shallot (add remaining to taste, as the flavor is strong), and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix until thoroughly combined.
Toss the Salad
Add romaine and matchstick carrots to bowl with dressing and toss together.
Plate the Dish
Divide salad between two plates. Add roasted cauliflower to each plate, then garnish with wasabi peas, sliced almonds, and Sriracha. Wasabi peas and Sriracha are spicy, so add with caution!
