If you’re joining in with Veganuary and are in any way concerned about missing meat you have to try our Cauliflower Steaks. Once this super veg roasts it caramelises and becomes unctuous and delicious. We love the humble cauliflower and it’s many and varied health benefits. Cauliflower Steaks are a powerhouse of nutrients, including anti-inflammatory Vitamin C, digestive-supportive fibre and glucosinolates, which are sulphurous compounds that help us detoxify and neutralize carcinogens.

Ineke’s note ** I have recently started using the brand “Belazu” which I love, they make there tahini using traditional stoneground methods and the tahini is runny and has a slightly hint of salt from the methods they use to make it
*** You can also use honey, which some people prefer. Or omit it entirely if strict keto.
