One vegetable that has been very difficult for me to feed my daughters is cauliflower.
I have really tried in so many ways to get them to like it.
And I was practically on the verge of giving up on getting them to like this wonderful vegetable when chef and food writer, Olia Herclues, came to do a guest chef session in my restaurant.
She roasted the cauliflower with a variety of spices and lots of different marinades, which inspired me to try, just one last time.
At home, I created my own version of the mariande to coat the cauliflower in, and, thankfully, my girls loved it.
Roasted cauliflower with rose harissa
1 small cauliflower
3tsp Belazu rose harissa
1tsp peeled and grated ginger
2 cloves garlic peeled and grated
1tsp sea salt
1tsp cumin and fennels seeds crushed
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and rub the paste all over the cauliflower and keep aside for 15 minutes.
Heat the oven to 160 degrees (fan oven) and place the marinated cauliflower in the middle shelf of the oven and cook for 40 minutes. Serve hot.
