what you need

  • a whole cauliflower, cut into florets
  • salt and pepper
  • extra virgin olive oil

  • baby spinach and/or rocket leaves
  • flaked almonds

what to do

Heat the oven to very hot, about 220C. Line a baking sheet with baking paper and spread the cauliflower florets out in a single layer. Season well with salt, pepper, and ras el hanout, and drizzle a good amount of olive oil on top. Roast until just cooked but still a little crunchy.

When the cauliflower has cooled spread out on a bed of the spinach and rocket, and sprinkle the almonds and raisins over the top. For the dressing whisk the herbs, some olive oil, sherry vinegar, salt and pepper in a jug and spoon over the top.
