The other night my friend invited me over for dinner and told me we were going to have cauliflower and quinoa.
I mean I’m open about new food but that just didn’t sound too exciting. (Sorry S!)
I just didn’t have a very fond memories of cauliflower.
Kinda tastes weird and is a bit meh.
But I shouldn’t have been so quick to judge because what she created (based on this recipe) was so good!
So a couple days later I had to make it myself.
The first time I had it we had some pita bread with it too.
And a glass of wine.
‘Cause any good girls night with food should include wine.
(Should serve about 3 depending on how hungry you are)
♦ Cauliflower head broken into small pieces
♦ 1 onion finely chopped (I kept mine as little half moons)
♦ 2 tsp ground cumin
♦ 1 tsp ground coriander
♦ 1 tsp turmeric
♦ 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
♦ 2 tbsp rapeseed oil (I used olive oil)
♦ 1 tsp sea salt flakes
♦ Ground black pepper
♦ 1 lemon
♦ 120g quinoa/bulgur wheat
♦ Fresh coriander
♦ Yoghurt, to serve
Preheat your oven to 190ºC.
Cook your quinoa/bulgur wheat according to the packet.
On a baking tray/dish place the cauliflower pieces, onion, fresh coriander and add the ground spices.
Drizzle with oil and mix it well. You want your cauliflower to be yellow.
Roast the cauliflower for about 15-20 min, not too long, you want there to be a slight crunch.
Serve the quinoa onto a plate, add the cauliflower, some fresh coriander and sprinkle with lemon juice.
Yoghurt on the side gives a nice contrast to the spices.
And dig in!
Optionally you can have it with pita bread.
Hope you all had a great and frightening and fun Halloween!
