Good Afternoon everyone! I hope your Sunday has been good so far. This recipe was one of my favourite vegetarian recipes because it was so simple but full of good flavour. It’s amazing what a little chilli, garlic and cumin will do to cauliflower, these wraps were packed with flavour and left me feeling full. You could also try this recipe using pitta bread instead of wraps.
Recipe: Spicy Cauliflower Wraps(serves 1)
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 red onion – finely sliced
1/2 carrot – cut into sticks
1/5 cucumber – cut into sticks
Pine nuts – toasted
2x tortilla wraps
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5.
Wash and cut the cauliflower into bites sized chunks, put into a bowl and add the oil then season with the chilli, garlic, tumeric, cumin and salt.
Place the cauliflower onto a baking tray and cook for 35-45 minutes.
Sprinkle some pine nuts into a dry pan and fry until lightly golden, then leave to cool down.
In the meantime, prepare the salad, washing and slicing to your preferred way and mix together in another bowl.
5 minutes before the cauliflower is done, place the tortilla wraps in the oven to heat through.
When everything is done, fill your tortilla wraps with some salad and cauliflower and a squirt of your favourite sauce (I used tomato ketchup).
Fold the tortilla wraps into a parcel, slice in half and enjoy.
Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. Today’s recipe is a nice and easy salad, perfect for a light lunch or as a side with your dinner. In the photo you can see that I ate the salad with Potato and Kale Fritters (another recipe I will be posting soon). I like this salad because it is random and uses a basic range of ingredients that aren’t too expensive. I think the taste would suit most people but feel free to play around with the ingredients and use orange juice and zest, walnuts, pistachios, pumpkin seeds or shallots.
A’s Salad – you can decide how much of each ingredient you want to use depending on how many people are eating it. I made this as one portion.
Small handful of raisins – soaked in orange juice
50g brown rice
1 tbsp pine nuts – toasted
Handful of lettuce – shredded
Few slices of red onion
Zest of 1/2 an orange
1 tbsp orange juice
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper
Put the raisins to soak in orange juice overnight.
Rinse and cook the rice, I like to use salt, thyme and butter but you can make it plain if preferred.
Toast the pine nuts and set aside. Wash the lettuce, shred it finely and leave to fully dry. Finely slice the onion and set aside.
Zest the orange and put in a bowl with the pine nuts, lettuce and onion.
Make a super basic vinaigrette using 1 tbsp of orange juice, 2 tbsp of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Once the rice is cooked, mix in the with salad, add the raisins and drizzle the vinaigrette over the top.
