It’s nearly Christmas! In exactly one week it’s Xmas eve.. How exciting!! At least, I think it’s exciting, because I love Xmas. Cooking for my family, being with loved ones, visiting friends, family and making memories. Last Xmas I’ve had such a good time, that I’m overly excited about this one. In fact, I’m flying to the Netherlands in 5 days, woohoo! Did you plan out your Xmas dinner yet? Do you remember my last Xmas Dinner? This year I also have a lovely recipe for you, called ‘Turkcauli’. Many turkeys and chickens are eaten with Xmas and that makes me overly sad. That is why I kind of tried to make a statement with this recipe’s name, because no animal needs to die for a nice Xmas dinner. In fact, how can you be all about peace and joy during these festive times, whilst chewing on the flesh of a dead animal that suffered? Do you agree? Then this oven roasted cauliflower recipe will definitely look nice on your Xmas table!
1 medium cauliflower
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
1 tbs avocado oil
1-2 cloves of garlic
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1 tbs nutritional yeast
salt/pepper (to taste)
-Preheat the oven to 180C.
-Take the leaves off the cauliflower and cut off the bottom, so it will nicely stand up.
-Put the whole cauliflower and the salt in pan of boiling water and let it boil for about 5-8 min (depending on size).
-Mix all the ingredients for the marinate in the blender and blend until smooth.
-Put the cauliflower in a tray and cover (use your hands or the back of a spoon) the whole cauliflower with the marinate, nice and evenly.
-Put the tray in the the oven, for about 30-40 min (or until tender).
Are you having a Christmas dinner with family and/or friends and are you still looking for a nice recipe? If you didn’t decide yet, then I think this is a good option.
