Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Wings

If you follow FoodFrom4 on Instagram you’ll know that I am doing Veganuary once again. I’ve always struggled with the ethics of dairy and egg production but I’m doing Veganuary more as a way of a) trying to shed a little middle aged spread, and to expand my repertoire and try new dishes. I once…

Whole Roasted Cauliflower

Cauliflower has become the vegetable of 2016. So versatile it works well in curries, pies, as a low carb alternative to rice, as a pizza base and of course smothered in cheese sauce. However roasting the vegetable whole is a new experience and makes for a perfect sharing platter or a meat free alternative to…

Fried Cauliflower and Broccoli with Cashew “Cheese” Sauce

Last year I went to Vegfest London. I was expecting a spectacular selection of meat free foods but instead I was presented with a vast array of meat and cheese substitutes. I tried a sample from one of the cheese shops. Quite possibly the most vile thing I have ever tasted and the taste lingered…

Cauliflower & Kale Tart

Tart, flan, quiche. Call it what you will, the combination of light, fluffy egg and thin, crisp pastry is something I never tire of. Frying the cauliflower until charred brings out flavour. Don’t be afraid if you think you are burning it. The more colour, the more flavour. I cheated here and used a ready…

Gluten Free Pizza

Not just gluten free, but also ultra low in carbs. Inspired by a recent cauliflower cheese tart where I used a cauliflower crust, I thought I’d try to use some of the glut of courgettes we get at this time of year on our allotment in another unusual way. The topping is a standard pizza…

Roasted, Spiced Broccoli with Paneer

I’ve been reading lately about the deliciousness of roasted cauliflower – just a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt, half an hour in a hot oven and out pops a delicious, charred side dish. I wondered if I could do something similar with cauliflower’s green cousin, broccoli. To make it more interesting…

Gobi Paneer

Cauliflower seems to be the perfect ingredient for making curry. I added paneer here to make it a little more interesting. Serve with Bhatura or other Indian bread, natural yogurt and spicey mango chutney. 2-3 tablespoons sunflower oil 1 head of cauliflower – chopped into rough chunks 1-2 tablespoons root ginger – finely chopped 200g…
