An article written by our guest author Selina Reusser
Autumn is right around the corner!
With autum slowly turning the leaves into all different kinds of colors, we thought it would be lovely to bring some of this yellow-golden mood onto our plate with this delicious recipe! Slow-roasting is an ultra-light and gentle way to prepare cauliflower. Seasoned with Ras El Hanout, a magical Moroccan spice blend, and with a pinch of Conflictfood Saffron threads, this dish is guaranteed to be a perfect autumn treat!
The glamorous spices and the roasting method make the golden cauliflower florets a perfect combination to our Conflictfood Freekeh, and we could hardly resist to snack on the roasted cauliflower after it was done baking!
1 big Cauliflower (ca. 1,5 kg)
2-3 tbsp Olive Oil
1 pinch of Conflictfood Safran
2-3 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
2-3 tsp Ras el Hanout (or your favorite curry powder)
1-2 tsp Paprika
Agave syrup to sweeten (optional)
250g Conflictfood Freekeh (prepare according to the leaflet found in your box)
Parsley to decorate (optional)
ca. 40 min
4 Portions (depending on the size of the cauliflower)
First you mix the olive oil with the Conflictfood Saffron threads so that they can transfer their beautiful color and their special taste into the oil – the mixture is best stored in a warm place, e.g. near the oven. After that, heat up the oven to 200°C and set up a large baking tray with baking paper.
In the meantime, you can prepare and simmer your Conflictfood Freekeh according to the instructions in your peace box.After you have washed the cauliflower, you divide it into little florets or try to cut strips. In a large bowl, marinate the cauliflower florets with your oil-saffron mixture.Add the remaining spices (Ras El Hanout, paprika, salt and pepper), the balsamic vinegar and optionally the agave syrup and mix everything well.After you have marinated your cauliflower, place the cauliflower florets on the prepared baking sheet and leave the rest of the cooking to your oven – after about 30 minutes, with occasional turning of your cauliflower, the golden yellow roses are ready and can be enjoyed with a portion of Conflictfood Freekeh!
