Roasted Cauliflower with Hazelnuts and Almonds
  • Preheat oven to 220* C (420*F) Fan. Place an empty 30x35 cm non-stick baking pan in the oven. Allow it to get very hot.
  • With a small knife, cut the cauliflower into smaller florets and wash. Remove all of the florets from the core. Then, “peel” the core by slicing away the harder outer part. Cut each of the florets in half.
  • Place them all into a large bowl. Add olive oil, salt, sugar and pepper. Toss.
  • When the oven has heated to the appropriate temperature needed, open the door very quickly and carefully remove the hot pan. Transfer the cauliflower to the pan, making sure that the cut side is facing down on the pan. This will help the cauliflower cook faster (all this should be done very quickly so that the oven temperature doesn’t drop and the pan doesn’t cool).
  • Place the pan back in the oven and shut the door quickly. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until the cauliflower is done.
  • Remove from oven and immediately transfer the cauliflower to a bowl. If it stays in the pan it will continue to cook and we don’t want it to cook any longer.
  • In a small pan, toast the almonds over medium heat. This should take 3-4 minutes, or until the almonds have browned nicely.

For the hazelnuts

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350*F) Fan.
  • Put the hazelnuts in a small baking pan. Roast for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  • When they have cooled, put them in a towel. Wrap the towel around them and crush them with a pestle.

To serve

  • In a large bowl, add the cauliflower, roasted hazelnuts, grated zest of 1 lemon and juice from ½  a lemon, and quite a bit of olive oil.
  • Sprinkle with parmesan flakes, toasted almonds and parsley.
