Roast Cauliflower, Sumac and Rocket Salad
Now that the weather is nicer (and I have ten weeks and counting to the wedding) I'm starting to want to eat salads but in the evening also want a more substantial meal. This recipe is really good as it's chunky - cauliflower in a salad is a lot more filling than just cucumber - and it's also a very 'clean' recipe with simple flavours that makes you feel quite virtuous.
The recipe came from YOU magazine in the Daily Mail - I love the magazine so my parents keep it for me every week as I don't buy the newspaper. The recipe is also available online here.
To serve 4, you need:
500g small cauliflower florets
1 red onion, peeled and sliced
5 tbsp. "good olive oil"
1 heaped tsp coriander seeds, coarsely ground
sumac for dusting
2 handfuls rocket
Season with salt and scatter over the coriander seeds. Roast for 30 minutes then leave to cool.
Dust the cauliflower with sumac - a Middle Eastern spice - and mix with the rocket. Drizzle over another spoonful of oil and serve.
