Whole Roast Cauliflower with Sumac & Cumin


“This dish is a really simple crowd pleaser. Cauliflower can be daunting to cook, I created this simple recipe to help get you started and hopefully fall in love with this delicious vegetable. Sumac is one of those spices I love to use, you can miss it out and try 1 tbsp tamari or a wheat free soya sauce instead.”

  5. Add the water to the bottom of the baking tray and bake in the oven for half an hour.
  6. Meanwhile, make your dressing by combining all of the ingredients in a jug stirring well.
  7. Once the cauliflower is soft (a knife should pierce it smoothly), remove it from the oven. Place over the bed of lambs lettuce and rocket (or salad of your choice) and sprinkle the onions and garlic on top. Drizzle the dressing all over to finish and enjoy.
