LUXE / HEALTH turmeric cauliflower and cabbage salad…

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Whoever said ‘you don’t make friends with salad’, has obviously never been in my kitchen.  A good salad can be life-changing, especially when it comes to the monotony of weekday work lunches so while this dish is certainly simple, trust me when I say – it will hit the spot!  It’s also a great way to include a generous dose of the anti-inflammatory super spice, turmeric, in your daily diet too.  Enjoy!

LUXE / HEALTH Turmeric Cauliflower and Cabbage Salad

Ingredients:

1/2 head of cauliflower, broken into florets
1/4 red cabbage, thinly sliced or shredded
2 spring onions, finely sliced
1 small lebanese cucumber, cut into matchsticks
Juice of 1/2 lime
1-2 tsp. ground turmeric
Olive or coconut oil
Handful of fresh coriander, roughly chopped
Handful of fresh mint, roughly chopped
Handful of rocket
Goats cheese
Black pepper

Method:

  • Preheat your oven to 180.
  • In a large bowl, toss cauliflower florets with a good glug of olive or coconut oil, a couple of teaspoons of turmeric (depending how much you like the flavour) and a good crack of sea salt and black pepper.
  • Pop seasoned cauli onto a baking sheet and roast for 15-20 minutes until the florets have started to turn golden brown and the cauli has softened.
  • Meanwhile, in a large salad bowl, mix together cabbage, spring onions, cucumber and rocket.   Add the cooked cauliflower then drizzle with a little olive oil and the juice of half a lime.  Add the coriander and mint then toss again.
  • Serve with a generous crumbling of goats cheese and devour!

Love, life and loss…

If you follow my Instagram account, you’ll probably already be aware of the ups and downs of my life of late – but I thought it was important to write a blog post to bring myself a sense of closure and comfort as I grieve the loss of my grandmother.

My Vecamami, as I called her, taught me so much about life.  She was humble and gracious, loving and endlessly generous and although I can’t see or talk to her every day, I know a part of her will always be with me.

But for someone who writes every day, it has been heartbreaking to have lost a little of my inspiration recently.  I’m just trying to trust the process and know that soon enough, the inspiration will return.  With some exciting new content in the works for LUXE / HEALTH, I can’t wait to throw my energy back into this project.

But for now…it’s time for a much needed holiday, so me and hubby are off to chase the sunshine.  Have a beautiful week!
