Cauliflower, Coconut, Yoghurt Bach Hut


Serves four

  • 2 large cauliflowers - trimmed and washed, leaving as many leaves as possible
  • 140g harissa paste
  • 60ml olive oil
  • 2 lemons
  • Salt

For the yoghurt and dressing

  • 500g Coconut yoghurt
  • 100g Tahini
  • 2 Cloves garlic - peeled and finely grated
  • 1 large pomegranate - deseeded (cut in half and bash the skin with a wooden spoon
  • 25g mint - washed and picked
  • 25g coriander - washed and picked 
  • Olive oil for finishing


Preheat oven to 180C

  • Dilute the harissa paste with the olive oil.
  • Cut each cauliflower into 8 wedges and coat with the harissa paste, season with salt.
  • Place on a baking sheet as a single layer but next to each other to allow the cauliflower to steam and roast at the same time, creating textures and flavours.
  • Cut the lemon in half and place face down on the tray.
  • Bake at 180c for between 20 and 30 minutes depending on size. Check by piercing the thickest part with a knife which should be soft with little resistance. The leaves should be coloured from steamed green to golden, even blackened on the edges. The lemon should be blackened on the flesh side.
