Lets cook: Start by heating the oven to 200oC. Blend the bread in a jug blender or food processor to make a fine crumb. Mix in the curry powder and some S/P. You can add more curry powder if you want more flavour. Cut the cauliflower into small florets. I went for some large ones and some small ones. Prepare 3 small bowls with some flour, some soya milk and the breadcrumbs like LINK. Doing one floret at a time, coat them in flour then dip them in the soya milk and then coat them with the breadcrumbs. Place them on a tinned-foiled tray and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, make the coleslaw. Grate the carrot, thinly slice the red cabbage and onion and cut to make smaller pieces. Mix the mayonnaise, wasabi, Dijon mustard, pepper and sesame seeds (if using) in a large bowl. Then add the vegetables and mix well. By now the cauliflower should be ready, so plate up the slaw and top with the florets  cutefacenobackground

  1. Sorry, pressed go there without meaning to! Toying with going vegan, but not quite brave enough to take the plunge. This could be a good compromise or a stepping stone in that direction. Really looking forward to trying out some of your recipes.

    1. Hi Jayne and thanks for your comment (sorry for the late reply). If you’re already a vegetarian, the change is super easy. Just make sure you get a well balanced diet. I tried going vegan for 2 months but it just didn’t suit my lifestyle (daily exercise, half marathon training, long hours spent on my PhD). I don’t think I got the balance right but will definitely give it another go sometime soon (Y)
