My cauliflower and chickpea heaven…

Want. Gimme. Yum.

foodbod

This is one of my all time favourite dishes of mine, the flavours are phenomenal and the textures are perfect, the crunchy bits on the cauliflower, and the sticky cloves of garlic and the pop of the chickpeas…I can wax lyrical about this one for hours….!

The marinade/sauce is sharp and spicy. If you need to take the edge of the sourness, or to add some sweet stickiness, add a spoonful or two of honey to the mix.

I love it freshly cooked, cold the next day, reheated, or whizzed up into a dip if there’s any left (it’s a rarity!). If you try it, I hope you love it too…

Ingredients

1 whole head of a medium cauliflower

1 can/jar chickpeas, drained

3-5 lemons, squeezed for the juice

16 cloves garlic, peeled

150ml olive oil

3 tsp mayonnaise/natural yoghurt

1 tsp Harissa paste/spice mix

1 tbsp tomato purée

Another Way to Eat Leftover Turkey or “Turkey Roast”

Not only have I been posting a lot of Veggies Don’t Bite recipe links, but I’ve also been making and eating them. With the colder weather, an easy-baked pasta dinner is perfect and you can add in leftover turkey or any protein you want.

Are you ready for some pasta? Check out Baked Vegan Feta Tomato Pasta. For gluten-free pasta options, Dellalo and Jovial are both great for their flavor and texture.

I recommend Trader Joe’s Vegan Feta or Violife’s Just Like Feta for dairy-free options. Both companies have amazing feta-like taste and texture.

Remember to add Reiki.

Happy Friday!
