ONE-POT SPAGHETTI WITH ROASTED CAULIFLOWER
Don’t we all love quick one-pot dishes? Extra love for the dish that is loaded with flavor and nutrients. This week, I’ll try to share easy recipes with cauliflower as the star ingredient.
Here, the roasted cauliflower pairs wonderfully with the spicy, tangy tomato sauce.
Ingredients for roasted cauliflower
1 whole cauliflower head
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tbsp dried basil
1 tsp cashew parmesan (I used @pimp.my.salad)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1. Cut the cauliflower into florets, wash them thoroughly
2. Heat a cast iron skillet & add 1 tbsp olive oil
3. Add the cauliflower to the skillet, sprinkle some salt, pepper, dried basil leaves, cashew parmesan on the cauliflower
4. Sprinkle some water on the cauliflower, cover, cook on medium-high for about 3-4 min or until golden-brown
5. Uncover and flip the florets to cook further, cover, cook again until golden-brown. Make sure the cauliflower stems are cooked through & charred but still holding their shape. This whole process takes about 20-25 min
6. Once the cauliflower florets are done cooking, turn off heat & drizzle 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice over them. Transfer to a bowl & set aside for use later. .
For the pasta
1 lb dry pasta
1 lb ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 large leek, trimmed, the white & pale green part diced
7 cloves garlic
1 tsp red pepper flakes (more or less, adjust according to taste)

Salt, pepper, to taste
1/2 cup fresh basil
1 tbsp cashew parmesan (I used @pimp.my.salad)
1. Combine spaghetti, tomatoes, diced leek, crushed garlic, red-pepper flakes, olive oil, some salt, & water in a large pot
2. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring & turning pasta frequently until it is al dente (check package instructions) Turn off heat
3. Season to taste with salt, pepper & add cashew parmesan & fresh torn basil
4. Divide the pasta into separate serving bowls, top with the roasted cauliflower.
