  • 400 g cauliflower , cut into 3 thickish slices
  • 100 g kale , washed and shredded
  • 1/2 a red onion (50g), skin on, cut into wedges
  • 200 g cherry tomatoes on the vine
  • 250 g puy lentils , cooked
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 clove of garlic , minced
  • 3 or 4 sprigs of thyme
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Lemon wedges to serve


  • Pre heat the oven to 200 degrees C ( I use a fan assisted electric oven )
  • In a small bowl mix the olive oil, garlic, lemon and leaves from the a couple of sprigs of fresh thyme. Place the cauliflower steaks on a baking tray, brush liberally on both sides with the oil and lemon mixture. Add the tomatoes and red onion wedges, give them a brush of oil too. Season with a little sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Roast in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender.
  • Meanwhile bring a pan of water to the boil, add the lentils and cook for 10 minutes, steam the kale at the same time.
  • Serve the cauliflower steaks on a bed of kale and lentils, add the roasted tomatoes and onion wedges and serve with some lemon wedges.
