Cauliflower, I can eat it every week. I love the classic Belgian dish with mashed potatoes and cauliflower, vegan white sauce and vegan sausage. But still, I like to vary with cauliflower. This time roasted in the oven with a peanut sauce.
Cut the cauliflower into florets and place in a large baking dish.
Peel the onion and cut into rings. Place the rings over and between the cauliflower.
Pour a dash of olive oil over it and add pepper.
Put in the oven for 20 minutes. Halfway you turn everything around well. If they are still a bit too hard after 20 minutes, leave them for 5 minutes longer. Prick regularly with a fork so that the cauliflower does not become too soft.
Meanwhile, prepare the peanut sauce.
Cut the chili pepper in half and remove the seeds. Shred fine. Peel the garlic and cut into small pieces. Peel the sweet potato and cut into small cubes.
Stew the chili pepper and garlic. Add peanut butter, water and sweet potato. Cook until the sweet potato is done. Leave on a low heat. Add tamari and lime juice. Mix the sauce.
Mix the chickpea flour with a little water to make a paste. Add this to the sauce while stirring. Turn up the heat a little until it simmers and as soon as the sauce thickens you lower the heat.
Pour the sauce over the roasted cauliflower. Toss everything well.
Chop 35 grams of peanut into small pieces and sprinkle over the cauliflower. Sprinkle pieces of spring onion and lime zest on top.
This is a side dish, so you can choose how you want to eat it. Some examples:
with some rice and tempeh
with a salad and couscous
as part of a buffet …
as a snack (cut the cauliflower into smaller pieces if necessary and provide small forks)
I find this dish to be the most delicious when it’s just out of the oven, but also very tasty when it is cold.
Are you going to try this dish? Let me know in a comment at the bottom of this page.
