The Cauliflower often just gets boiled and served with cheese sauce. I have created a recipe for roast cauliflower salad where it is the star and is paired along side chives, lemon and sweet natural sultanas this dish is well-rounded in flavor and is amazing to eat by its self or paired with roast meats. Check below what I’ve paired mine with.
Roast Cauliflower and Sultana Salad
1/2 head cauliflower, thinly sliced
2 tbsp. sultanas, soak in 4 tbsp. warm water
1 tbsp. fresh chives, finely chopped
1/2 lemon zest and juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly cracked pepper
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/4 cup tasty cheese, grated
- Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees.
- In a roasting tray combine cauliflower, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil. Toss together and bake for 30 minutes until cauliflower takes on a golden brown colour.
- Remove from oven, place in a bowl. Strain sultanas from soaking water and add to the bowl along with juice and zest of lemon, chives and cheese.
- Toss together so the cheese melts, check seasoning and serve.
Yield: Serves one hungry person or a great side dish for 2 people.
Here is how I’ve served mine; Seared beef sirloin resting upon roast cauliflower and warm lemon salad, balsamic roasted cherry tomato’s and a dollop of beach spinach pesto to finish.
