Roasted Cauliflower Salad

This is a mash of Jamie Oliver's and some other recipes. I want to try roasting cauliflower since reading rave reviews about it. It really has brought out another dimension to cauliflower. If you're a cauliflower hater, like my stepson, give it a go. He finished the box of leftovers. The nut and the pieces of toast give some crunch, and the herb gives a bit of freshness. You can substitute parsley with mint or coriander. The salad can be eaten warm or cold.

½ cauliflower cut into florets
Drizzle of olive oil
1 tbsp ground cumin seeds
1 tbsp  ground turmeric
1 tbsp ground garam masala
pinch of salt and pepper
½ red onion, sliced
2 pieces of bread
¼ cup of walnuts, roughly chopped
1 handful of parsley, finely chopped
1 tbsp butter

1.          Spread butter on bread, and sprinkle on some parsley, toast for about 5 mins each side, tear into 2cm pieces.
2.          Mix the spices, salt and pepper in a bowl with the olive oil and toss the cauliflower in to mix. Spread on a baking tray and bake in 200C oven for about 20-25mins. Sprinkle in the walnuts in the last 5 minutes over the cauliflower to toast the walnuts as well.

3.          When cool enough to handle, toss through the toast pieces, onion and parsley.
