I love salads and these days I am on cauliflower kick, I am trying to make as many salads as with cauliflower! 🙂 In India there are a lot of dishes with cauliflower such as Aloo Gobhi (potato and cauliflower stir fry), Stuffed Parathas (flatbreads) and many more, however I am not a big fan of most apart from the parathas. 😛
Anyway without diverting the subject anymore, I would like to share this incredible, simple, vegan and gluten free recipes packed with fresh flavours.
This is how you make this salad.
- 2 cups steamed cauliflower
- 1 cup blanched snap peas
- ½ cup blanched french beans
- 1 onion thinly sliced
- 2 tbsp fresh dill
- 2 tsp coriander seeds
- 1 tsp black peppercorns
- 1 tsp fennel seeds
- 1 tsp sumac
- Red chilli flakes to taste
- Salt to taste
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp butter
- ¼ cup roasted pistachios
- 1 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 tsp lemon juice
Dry roast coriander seeds, fennel seeds, black peppercorns, put them in mortar with sumac and crush it roughly, keep it aside.
Heat 1 tsp butter and olive oil, add the steamed cauliflower and toss it well with salt and red chilli flakes. Keep it aside in a bowl.
In the same pan add some more olive oil and toss in the onions. Sauté for just a minute to get rid of the rawness. Place it in a cauliflower bowl.
Repeat the same for snap peas and french beans, place all of them in a bowl.
Make a simple vinaigrette of olive oil and lemon juice.
Add the spice powders, salt, fresh dill and vinaigrette. Toss the salad well and add the pistachios.
Serve this salads for brunch or as a side!
