Ingredients

Serves 1

1 Gosh! Mixed Seed, Quinoa, Carrot & Coriander Bake
1 bread bun of your choice
1 thick slice of a large tomato
A handful of shredded carrots and sprouts (these are optional)
A handful of shredded purple cabbage

For the cauliflower “steak”:

3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 tsp of turmeric powder
½ tsp of smoked paprika
Salt & pepper to taste
1 cauliflower

For the homemade hummus:

1 can of drained and rinsed chickpeas
1 heaped tablespoon of tahini paste
1 clove of garlic
The juice of ½ lemon
½ teaspoon of cumin powder
Salt & pepper to taste

For the homemade pesto:

½ cups of almonds – use sunflower seeds to keep it nut free
1 cup of fresh basil leaves
The juice of ½ lemon
3-4 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast (optional but give a nice cheesy flavour)
1 clove of garlic
Salt & pepper to taste

  1. Preheat oven to electric 200°c/fan oven 180°c/gas mark 4
  2. Add all hummus ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth, for about 2-3 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Put all pesto ingredients into a food processor and blitz until you have a fairly smooth and creamy consistency. Set aside.
  4. Remove all the leaves and stalk from the cauliflower. With a sharp knife slice the cauliflower into 1 ½ cm thick “steaks”.
  5. In a small bowl mix the olive oil, lemon juice, ground coriander, turmeric, smoked paprika cumin, salt and pepper. Brush the cauliflower steaks with the marinade and place them on a plate to marinate for ideally 1 hour, if you have time.
  6. Heat up a griddle pan on a medium heat. Place the cauliflower steak into the pan and cook it on each side for 4-5 minutes.
  7. Cook the Gosh! bake in the centre of the oven for 15-20 minutes
  8. Toast the bread bun either in the pan or in the oven.
  9. Spread some hummus on each side of the bread bun. Start by layering the shredded purple cabbage, add the tomato slice, Gosh! bake on top, cauliflower steak, a generous dollop of pesto and finish with the shredded carrots and sprouts (if using). Serve and eat straight away!
