How many times can I enthuse about the versatility of the humble cauliflower..many more times it seems! This is a dish that could be used at room temperature as a salad or warm as a side dish.  I adore roasted cauliflower and the nuttiness of the walnut goes so well with it.  Tasty, and nutty! 


1 head of cauliflower, trimmed and cut into florets

2-3 tblspns olive oil

1 cup walnuts

1/4 cup olive oil

Juice and zest of 1 lemon

1 clove garlic, peeled and chopped

1/2 tspn salt

Cauliflower walnut


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F degrees.
  • Place the cauliflower on a baking sheet and drizzle the tablespoons of olive oil over it.  Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden and tender.
  • Place the walnuts, garlic, lemon zest and juice, salt, and olive oil in a blender/food processor and blitz until smooth.
  • When the cauliflower is cooked, remove from the oven and toss in the walnut sauce.
  • Eat and enjoy!
