Cauliflower and cashew salad

Cauliflower and cashew salad

This cauliflower cashew salad recipe is from the Veggie Tree Cookbook by Anna Valentine. Anna’s recipes also feature in our Vegetarian Living NZ magazine.

One of my kitchen essentials is a big beautiful salad bowl. It’s so nice to mix your salad straight into it and the fewer dishes used the better.

Serves 4-6

Gather your ingredients.
Prepare the following:
1/2 cauliflower, cut into rough chunks
1/2 c raw cashew nuts
Pulse these in a mini food processor (shake the processor while it’s pulsing to help cut the ingredients evenly) until it resembles couscous (finely chopped but not a purée).
Add this mixture to your beautiful salad bowl, then add the following:
1/2 c sprouted chickpeas
1/4 red cabbage, finely sliced, then sliced in half again
1 stick celery or 4 sticks celery herb, thinly sliced
1 avocado, diced
juice of 1 lime
1 handful fresh mint and parsley, finely chopped
60g mayonnaise
1/2 tsp salt and cracks of pepper
When everything is in the bowl, toss together well and serve.
