Cauliflower wings & zesty lentil salad
Toss cauliflower florets in a hot sauce and serve with lentils and salad leaves to make this healthy, flavourful and nutrient-packed dinner
- Serves: 2 persons
- 1tbsp olive oil, plus extra for the baking sheet
- 75g plain flour
- 1tbsp paprika
- 200g low-fat natural yogurt
- 265g cauliflower florets
- 25-50ml hot sauce (depending on how much heat you prefer)
- 2tsp honey
- 1lime, zested and juiced
- 150g salad leaves
- 250g lentils, cooked
Step 1Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Oil and line a baking sheet with non-stick baking parchment. Put the flour, paprika and a big pinch of salt in a bowl and whisk in the yogurt and 50ml water until you have a smooth batter. Toss in the cauliflower florets until coated and spread out in an even layer on the baking sheet.
Step 2Bake for 20-25 mins, tossing halfway through, until crisp and golden. Put the hot sauce and 1 tsp of the honey in a pan to heat up, toss the cauliflower in the mixture, put back on the tray and cook for about 5-8 mins more.
Step 3Meanwhile, whisk together most of the lime zest and all the juice, the remaining 1 tsp honey and 1 tbsp olive oil in a large bowl, and toss in the salad leaves and lentils. Divide between two plates and top with the cauliflower wings and the remaining lime zest, if you like.
