As bizarre as this dish sounds, it is unbelievably good and possibly one of my favourites! I urge you to make it as soon as possible. The dressing is super-versatile and can be used to drizzle over a load of steamed or roasted vegetables as well.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
35g goji berries
1 cauliflower, cut into small florets
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
2 small red onions, sliced
35g flaked almonds
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

For the turmeric dressing

Quantity Ingredient
4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 lemon, zested and juiced
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/4 large, ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
1 tablespoon ground turmeric
1 tablespoon raw honey
pinch sea salt

Method

  1. Put the goji berries in a bowl of water and set aside to soak for 10 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180˚C.
  2. Toss the cauliflower in the coconut oil – really rub the oil into it. Season with salt and black pepper, place on a baking tray and roast in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove the tray from the oven, add the sliced red onions and roast for another 15–20 minutes until tender. Transfer the roasted vegetables to a large bowl.
  3. Toast the flaked almonds on a baking tray in the hot oven for 3–5 minutes. Drain the goji berries and add to the roasted veggies, along with the toasted almonds.
  4. Combine all the dressing ingredients in a blender or food processor and blitz until you get a bright orange dressing. It’s wonderful to look at and taste. Serve the salad with the dressing and devour!

Note

  • Turmeric is a natural and potent anti-inflammatory that has been shown to work just as well as many anti-inflammatory drugs, but without the side effects. Studies are even suggesting that turmeric could slow the progression of Alzheimer , s disease by removing amyloid plaque build-up in the brain.
