Spiced Roast Cauliflower with Turmeric Dressing

So you’ve had yourself a merry little Christmas, now you feel a bit like 2017 Mariah and all you want for lunch is a salad. I hear you. Not just any old salad mind, a bowl of limp leaves sounds about as appealing as having to sit next to your handsy drunk uncle Jeffrey at the lunch table. However a big bowl of sunshine like this here roasted goodness should do the trick.


Preheat oven to 220 degrees Celsius.

In a large bowl mix together oil garlic, salt and spices. Add cauliflower florets and mix to coat in the mixture.

Transfer cauliflower to oven tray and roast for 30-40 minutes.

In the meantime mix together all dressing ingredients in a bowl.

Once cauliflower is cooked and cooled, arrange on plate, drizzle on dressing, scatter in nuts, raisins and coriander.
