I love the umami flavour of Miso paste, it takes me back to Japan where traditionally you have it in a warming broth before your food. In this recipe, Emma from My Market Kitchen uses the miso paste in a slightly different way making Miso Roasted Cauliflower. It is not only a delicious and effective way of adding a big flavour impact with just one ingredient but miso is actually packed full of vitamins, minerals and folic acid. As a fermented food, miso provides the gut with beneficial bacteria that helps us to stay healthy, vibrant and happy!
In the marinade for the cauliflower, Emma mixes in some of our Crushed Chillies for a little extra kick of flavour as well as acting as a kick-start for your metabolism. This dish is both super tasty and healthy and is a nice vegetarian option to take a break from your regular chicken, pork or beef roasts.

Spices used in this recipe
Chillies Crushed – Med
Chillies are grown throughout the world and are used to add flavour and heat to many dishes. Dried chillies taste rather different to the fresh variety due to the caramelisation of the sugars that occurs during the drying process. They are used widely in Mexican, Asian, Indian and Italian dishes.
