  • 1 Small Cauliflower, washed and cut into small florets
  • 2 Red Onions, cut into thick wedges
  • 0.5 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp Fennel Seeds
  • 0.5 tsp Runny Honey
  • Sea Salt & Ground Black Pepper, to season
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2.5 tbsp Smooth Peanut Butter
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 0.25 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Lime, zest & juice
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 0.3 tsp Salt
  • 4 tbsp Water
  • Few handfuls Baby Spinach
  • 0.3 cup Toasted Hazelnuts
  • 0.3 cup Soft Raisins


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C. (160°C fan).
  2. Place the cauliflower florets and onion wedges in a large baking tray. Add the spices, honey, seasoning and olive oil and gently toss to coat all the vegetables. Place in the oven for about 15 mins, of until the cauliflower is tender, but not mushy. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  3. Make the peanut butter dressing by placing all the ingredients in a medium sized jar (or blender). Turn the blender on to a low setting and add the the water one teaspoon at a time, to achieve the desired consistency (bear in mind that if you let it sit for a while, it will thicken – you can always thin it out with a splash of water). Test and adjust the seasoning to taste.
  4. Place a handful of baby spinach leaves on each plate, followed by a good amount of cauliflower florets & onion wedges. Drizzle generously with the dressing and serve the salad, topped generously with toasted hazelnuts and raisins.
