A little early in the day for dinner but i am submitting an image to an online contest and wanted to have the recipe posted with it. Roasted cauliflower is one of my all time favourites.

Purple Cauliflower spread

November 1, 2019

  Purple cauliflower is not always available but when it is at the market I grab it, if only for its colour. I like mixing the white, yellow and purple cauliflowers in salad, roasting them or making soup with one or two colours together. This purple dude was sitting in my fridge and I just didn’t get around to it so finally I thought I’d roast it and make a beautiful purple dip or spread... View Article

I had the cauliflower and enjoyed it so here is my version of this dish. If you have summer fresh cauliflower be... View Article

The curry is inspired by Vij’s at Home cookbook, I had to simplify as I didn’t have all the ingredients and anyway, I always adapt recipes. This... View Article

Israeli couscous with cauliflower “rice”

May 20, 2018

  Israeli couscous is not really a couscous. Real couscous is made with crushed grains of durum wheat and what is known as Israeli couscous are tiny little toasted pasta balls developed in Israel in the 1950s to replace rice which was then unavailable. Israeli couscous is easy to cook and good on its own or combined with other vegetables in salads or warm dishes. I like to brown the couscous in a little olive... View Article

Saffron roasted cauliflower and potato salad

June 30, 2017

Roasting cauliflower completely changes its flavour profile, bringing out caramelized, sweet and deep flavour. For this roast I drizzled the florets with a little saffron dissolved in water to get the golden colour that you see in the image. If you don’t like the flavour of saffron this dish will not cut it for you. You can try and substitute with turmeric, curry or even a little paprika instead, or leave the cauli plain. To...
