Spiced Baked Cauliflower

I usually grind up 4-6 times the spice requirement and store in a jar so that I can make this dish very quickly. If you don’t want to make the spice mix, you can buy baharat seasoning from most large supermarkets (Bart make a good one)

SERVES 4

SPICE MIX

1 tsp coriander seeds

1 tsp cumin seed

1 tsp fennel seeds

1 tsp turmeric

1 tsp smoked paprika

½ tsp Kashmiri chilli (optional)

SPICED CAULIFLOWER

4 smallish cauliflowers

3 tbsp of homemade spice mix or Baharat seasoning

4 tbsp vegetable oil

200g of homemade or shop bought hummus

2 tbsp harissa paste

pomegranate seeds, for garnish

mint leaves, torn for garnish

coriander leaves, torn for garnish

If your making your own spice mix, grind all the ingredient together.

Pre heat the oven to 2000C Fan. Trim the cauliflower and cut out a cone shape from the stem.

Mix 3 tbsp of homemade spice mix or baharat spice mix with 4 tbsp of oil to make a paste.

Using either a pastry brush or your hands (if you don’t mind getting messy) cover the cauliflower with the spice paste. Put on a baking tray and roast for between 35-40 minutes  or until tender when pierced with a knife.

While the cauliflower is cooking, add harissa to hummus and warm gently in a small saucepan. You want this to be just tepid.

  1. This is now my Go To for vegetarian and vegan guests but also for when I want something spicey and nicey side with a side order of smug for not using meat and getting more veggies in my diet. I absolutely love this. I have also cut the cauli up pre roasting for shorter cooking time.
