This soon-to-be summer classic uses roast cauliflower coated in a crispy, slightly spicy coconut coating as it's centerpiece. Then you combine this decadent cauliflower with minty peas, and stuffs the whole thing into a pita bread and finished it all with a fresh tahini dressing and crunchy seeds. The dish manages to be both comforting and fresh and light at the same time.

  • 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut

  1. Add the oats to a food processor or high-speed blender and blend them for a few seconds so that you get a semi-fine crumb.

  3. Add the almond milk and the rest of the cauliflower ingredients to a separate bowl and mix them together.
  4. Dip the cauliflower into the wet ingredients and then the dry mixture in batches then pop onto a large baking tray.
  5. Bake them at 375°F for 40 minutes until they’re golden and crispy.
  6. Add all the ingredients for the pea mash to your food processor and blend them together until you get a slightly chunky mash.
  7. Serve the crispy cauliflower loaded into flatbreads or pitas with the minty peas, lots of tahini dressing, mint, coriander, and toasted seeds.
