Roasted Cauliflower Steaks with Spiced Potatoes

Spicy and delicious- to serve two greedy people… (Photos to follow)

For the potatoes:
Ingredients
6/7 medium sized potatoes, cut into cubes

Spice mix:

1 tsp freshly ground garam masala
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp chilli powder
Pinch of salt

Rapeseed oil

Method
Boil the potatoes until just about cooked, drain them and return them to the pot. They should still be quite firm.
Heat a few tablespoons of oil on a roasting dish in the oven until smoking and pour into the pot with the potatoes.

Put the lid on and give them a shake to distribute the oil and fluff the edges. Pour them onto the roasting dish and spread them evenly in one layer- ideally they should be spaced out a little. Sprinkle over the spice mix. And return to the oven for around 45 minutes, turning occasionally.

Now start the cauliflower while they cook.

For the cauliflower

Ingredients
1 cauliflower
1 tbsp coriander seed
1 tbsp cumin seed
1 tsp mustard seed
1 tsp garam masala (unground or ground)
Rapeseed oil

Method
Cut 2 or 3 big slices from the centre of the cauliflower, transfer carefully to an oiled sheet, sprinkle with the spices and turn over so that they are coated.

Put in a preheated oven at 200c for 25-30 minutes. The cauliflower will be juicy and browned at the edges.

When the cauliflower is nearly done, make the broad beans.

I used the recipe above- roughly… Alternatively you could make simple spiced greens of almost any sort- spinach, broccoli, peas, kale…
