I know I’m not the first to slice up a cauliflower and roast it, but, I just want to say how fantastically delicious it is! And I never knew.
In the UK, Cauliflower has slowly fallen out of favour in the last few years, but I think that vegans are doing amazing things with this humble vegetable.
My childhood memories revolve around Cauliflower Cheese, (cauliflower baked in a cheese sauce) and I always just prayed I would get lots of sauce and not much of the flavourless, watery cauliflower, which, sadly, was rarely the case. Now I think Cauliflower Cheese vegan style is definitely worth a go, but right now I’m in love with the way cauliflower soaks up a lovely spicy marinade such as the one I’ve described below, and brings amazing texture to a dish. It’s just another one of those combinations that seems to transcend the sum of its parts!
I served it with basmati and a quick green bean coconut curry , mango chutney and coconut yogurt.
And. It. Was. Just. So. Good.
