**ROASTED CAULIFLOWER & DAHL**

cauli1

I cant get enough  of cauliflower… it’s a staple at my weekly farmers markets to roast up for my week ahead.  You can roast it whole and eat it as a “steak”, or try this as a tasty dish chopped up to use for packed lunches.

1 whole cauliflower, chopped in a tray and drizzled with lots of extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, 3 tspn of turmeric, 2 tspn of smoked paprika & 2 tspn of cayenne pepper.

Whilst it was in the oven I made some red lentil Dahl (so easy in a pan with lentils, ginger, curry powder etc or you can buy organic packets if you’re cheating!). Once the Cauli was in for about 45 minutes and starting to get a little crispy, I combined them and served up. Keeping it all #plantbased with a sprinkle of pan fried nuts & seeds (almonds,  sunflower seeds & pinenuts, sesame seeds)  plus  some chopped dried fruit for extra sweetness (cranberries i had around, but raisins etc all work!).

Cauliflower is very low in calories yet high in vitamins, and as per other cruciferous vegetables, its particularly high in glucosinolates and isothiocyanates, two groups of antioxidants that have been shown to slow the growth of cancer cells, so eat up!

Look forward to seeing  your creations! 📸📸
