Oven Roasted Cauliflower and Broccoli with Garlic

Cauliflower and Brocolli

These vegetables keep showing up in our vegbox and we decided to find something quick, easy and tasty. This recipe from Delia’s Vegetarian collection did the trick. Check out her recipe online.

8 oz (225 g) cauliflower
8 oz (225 g) broccoli
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 heaped teaspoon whole coriander seeds, coarsely crushed
2 garlic cloves, peeled
salt and freshly milled black pepper
Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 6, 400F (200C). 

All you do is trim the cauliflower and broccoli into florets, 1 inch (2.5 cm) in diameter, and place them in a mixing bowl, then sprinkle in the crushed coriander seeds. Crush the cloves of garlic together with 3/4 level teaspoon salt in a pestle and mortar until you have a paste.

Whisk the oil into this, then pour the whole mixture over the broccoli and cauliflower. Use your hands to toss and mix everything together to get a nice coating of oil and coriander, then arrange the florets on the roasting tray and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until tender when tested with a skewer, and serve straight away.
