Roast Cauliflower and Chickpea Salad with Tahini Dressing

½ cauliflower
¼ red cabbage
200gm cooked chickpeas
1 tablespoon slivered pistachios
1 tablespoon slivered almonds
1 generous handful flatleaf parsley

4 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon tahini
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Pinch brown sugar
½ teaspoon Sumac
Salt and pepper to taste

First roast your cauliflower. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius, break your cauliflower into little florets and pop on a baking tray (no oil necessary). Roast for 20-30 minutes, they should be slightly browned when done.  When cooked, allow to cool slightly before compiling your salad.

Slice up your red cabbages and parsley finely.  Toast slivered nuts in a dry frying pan until just golden, being sure to keep a close eye on them – they burn so easily.

For the dressing, simply combine all dressing ingredients, tasting as you go.

Pop all your salad vegetables in your serving bowl, add dressing, mix and serve immediately.
