Warm Cauliflower & Kale Salad [vegan]

Hearty and super tasty, this warm cauliflower & kale salad is tossed in a sweet lemon ginger dressing. I added some pumpkin seeds for a bit of crunch and chickpeas for protein.

  • 75 g kale - hard stalks removed
  • 350 g cauliflower florets
  • 250 g cherry tomatoes
  • 1 handful dessicated coconut - shredded not flaked
  • 400 g can chickpeas
  • olive oil
  • 1 handful pumpkin seeds

  • 1 garlic clove grated

  • Add kale, drained chickpeas and coconut to the tray and roast for a further 5-7 mins.
  • In the meantime, make the dressing by mixing together all the dressing ingredients above.
  • When vegetables are done, toss in dressing, pumpkin seeds and coriander. Serve straight away.
