Is there any better way to eat cauliflower ? Roasting it just makes it so soft and flavoursome with the right amount of crunch on the edges. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I used to think cauliflower was a bit of a meh vegetable, this salad has totally changed it for me. This combo is meant to be together, I first got this idea from Jess Cox Nutritionist (genius) and have put my own little twist on it. I eat this for a main meal or as a side, plus I always make sure I have some leftover to brighten my lunch for the next day #yayleftovers. This recipe is extremely versatile, use whatever beans, seeds or grains you want. I sometimes add in grated beetroot, and I’ve made it with sesame seeds and cannelinni beans >> it always turns out great.
