I love cauliflower. Any cauliflower. In fact, when I was young we lived quite a distance from the market and it was not unheard of for little ole me to snack away on my poor mother’s freshly purchased cauliflower head during the car ride home.

I still adore raw cauliflower, but this yummy “crumbed” cauliflower is a pretty close second. The coconut and turmeric pair so beautifully together and the crunchy coating will have you going back for more… and more.

The Smokey Tomato Dip is the perfect partner to my Coconut and Turmeric Crumbed Cauliflower. The addition of cumin, which is known to aide digestion and improve immunity, gives it a subtle middle eastern flavour.
