spiced cauliflower & pomegranate salad

I first had this delicious salad at book club made by fellow book clubber Rosie, and it was a recipe from Waitrose. I’ve adapted it to make it more flavoursome. 

Cauliflower and chickpeas are roasted with fragrant garam masala to give this veg-packed salad a gently spiced warmth. I like to serve it with roast chicken, pizza or salmon.

simple dhal recipe

A classic vegetarian recipe that is so easy to make and my recipe has gone around the world! Over the years, I’ve emailed it to friends who have enjoyed cooking it on repeat.

I love this vegetarian and vegan recipe; it’s so healthy – lots of protein, very little fat, and it tastes better the next day.
