Roasted Cauliflower Salad

Roasted Cauliflower Salad

I am into cauliflower a lot. Cooked, fried, roasted… I can even eat it raw. But the oven roasted cauliflower is the best. And if you are one of those people that do not like it, which I don’t get at all :), you might give it a try this way. Also, when roasted, it goes particularly good with cumin and it actually doesn’t need to be put in a salad. It’s that good to eat it all by itself :-D

Roasted Cauliflower Salad

1 whole cauliflower
1 tsp ground cumin
salt and pepper
olive oil
a handful of dry roasted walnuts
a handful of dried cranberries
fresh flat leaf parsley
200 ml greek yogurt
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 clove garlic, pressed

Divide cauliflower into relatively small florets that are similar in size. Put them all in a bowl and add cumin and salt and pepper. Pour enough olive oil so the florets are all coated in it. Place cauliflower on a large oven pan lined with baking paper and bake in a preheated oven on 200°C/392°F for about half an hour or until cauliflower is done.

Roughly chop some parsley. Mix yoghurt with lemon juice (taste it and put as much as you like, I prefer less acidity). Add garlic and season with salt to taste.

When the cauliflower is done, transfer onto serving plates and sprinkle the walnuts, cranberries and parsley over the top. Drizzle some sauce over everything and serve.

Serves two.

    Super izgleda! Ja volim karfiol i nikako ne razumijem ljude koji ga ne jedu.

    I love cauliflower too! I have eaten it prepared in every way and, like you, I particularly like it roasted. I could have a plate of your salad right now. Very nice combination of flavors. Thank you so much for contributing to WHB!

    I’m chiming in with the fact that I love cauliflower too. I love it steamed and served with a little freshly grated cheddar cheese. And au gratin. And in soup. And Indian-style with potatoes.

    Your salad looks and sounds phenomenal.

      Oh, yes, those Indian-style! I have forgot about it and actually, I adore it. Never made it at home though, only ate it in a restaurant. Thanks for reminding me! Time to give it a try :)
