Foodacious Tips

  • If you are using frozen cauliflower florets, increase the roasting time or allow to defrost thoroughly before cooking them.

  • Spinach or kale are great alternatives to wild rocket. They can also be used in combination for a more flavourful salad.

  • If you can't find roasted almond flakes, just chop regular almonds and roast in the oven at 180°C (356°F) for 5 minutes.

  • If you want to make a meal out of it, you can add tofu or shredded chicken as a source of protein.
