  • 1 medium cauliflower - قرنبيط
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander - كسبرة ناشفة
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin - كمون
  • 1 pinch salt (or to taste) - ملح
  • 1 pinch black pepper (or to taste) - فلفل أسود
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder - بودرة ثوم
  • 1 drizzle olive oil - زيت زيتون
  • 2 medium lime - ليمون بلدي
  • 2 tablespoon parsley (chopped to garnish) - بقدونس

Step by step

  1. Cut the cauliflower into florets and wash them with fresh water. Next, cover the cauliflower with boiling water from the kettle and let it simmer on a low heat for 3-4 minutes. (You need slightly softer cauliflower, yet still crunchy.)
  2. Drain, then wash the cauliflower with cold water. Pat it dry with kitchen tissue, before you move it to the baking tray or oven dish.
  3. Season the cauliflower with all the spices. Add a drizzle olive oil, then toss the cauliflower together. Arrange the florets on the tray and bake it in a 200C pre-heated oven for 20- 30 minutes or until golden and crispy from outside.
  4. Genereously squeeze lime juice over the cauliflower. Garnish with fresh parsely and serve.
