Here’s my first attempt at baking a whole cauliflower and it was amazing. I looked online at some spice rubs and then made up my own.
Rub the cauliflower with a mix of the following:
2 tsp turmeric,
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup olive oil (add a bit more if needed)
It needed some chilli powder, so add to your liking, but at least 1/2 tsp
Sauce was made from greek yoghurt, tahine, lemon juice and minced garlic. I just made up the proportions and it worked. Probably 1/4 cup tahine, 1 cup yoghurt, 1 tsp garlic, 1 tsp lemon juice, salt and pepper.
I served this with baked sweet potato wedges with cherry tomatoes and grapes (a really good combination so it turned out), and some coriander (yes, it was definitely the end of the bunch…)
Baked beetroot from our garden
Couscous with barberries and orange blossom water
Eggplant and tomato tagine (recipe from the Moroccon Soup Bar cookbook)
Fig and pear and raisin jam which I adapted from a chutney recipe in Heston Blumenthal at Home.
It was a Wednesday night feast. When I go back to full-time work it will be a shock.
