Cold, juicy, fresh salads may be a bit hard to stomach when it’s freezing outside, so at Sparkle HQ, we turn to making warm salads.
Cooking some of your salad ingredients makes all the difference and one of our go-to favorites is roasted cauliflower.
Also, spicing things up with cayenne pepper gives your salad some warmth and robust flavor.
Roasted cauliflower recipe:
½ head of cauliflower, chopped into florets
1 tablespoon of olive oil
½ teaspoon of garlic powder
½ teaspoon of paprika
Pinch of cumin
Pinch of cayenne
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
Mix everything together so the cauliflower florets are coated evenly with the marinade. Roast in the oven for 15 minutes at 180 degrees C or 400 degrees F.
Once it’s done baking, let the cauliflower cool for 10 minutes. In the meantime, put together mixed baby greens, canned unsalted garbanzo beans, raisins on a plate.
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon of honey
1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar
Pinch of sea salt
1 scoop of Sparkle Collagen with Verisol
Put all the ingredients into a small bowl and use a whisk to blend everything together till smooth. This spicy and tart mustard dressing will add more punchiness to this tasty, warm salad.
Top the salad with the spiced roasted cauliflower and drizzle the dressing all over.
