  • Category: Salad


  • Coconut oil or olive oil for cooking
  • 1/2 head of cauliflower, cut into small florets (cut the bigger florets in half)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander seed powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 1 tablespoon almond flakes (optional)

For the salad dressing

  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 small clove of garlic, crushed or finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons raisins or sultanas
  • 1/2 teaspoon of orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons of orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey (can be halved, use maple syrup for vegan version)
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Heat coconut oil or olive oil (about 2 tablespoons) in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower florets to the pan (I put them flat side down first) and cook for about 5 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Use tongs or a fork to turn each piece over and cook for 3-4 more minutes.
  2. Evenly, sprinkle the spices and salt over the cauliflower pieces and add the almonds. Stir through over heat for a minute, allowing the spices to release their aromas. Turn the heat off and set aside.
  3. While the cauliflower is cooking, make the salad dressing. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and set aside to infuse.
  4. Transfer the warm cauliflower to the salad bowl and mix through, making sure everything is well coated. Serve with some fresh herbs on top or as is.
