  • 1 large head of cauliflower (around 850g) cut into small, bite sized florets
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt and freshly cracked pepper
  • 2 chorizo sausages (220g) sliced into 50mm (around 1/4 inch) rounds
  • a large red onion (200g) sliced into wedges

  4. When the cauliflower has roasted for 10 minutes, remove from the oven and add the chorizo evenly over the tray on top of the cauliflower. Return to the oven for 5 minutes.
  5. After the chorizo has roasted for 5 minutes, add in the red onion wedges and roast for a further 10 minutes. Continue to prepare the salad ingredients. Slice the celery and finely chop the dill. Cut the lemon in half.
  6. Then add in the almonds to the tray bake and roast for a further 4 minutes.
  7. When the almonds have finished roasting, remove the tray from the oven and set aside to cool slightly for 5 minutes.
  8. Arrange the spinach and rocket on a large dish or bowl.
  9. Add the celery over the roasted ingredients and sprinkle with dill then with tongs arrange on the bed of salad leaves

It’s helpful to use your oven timer so that you remember to add in the ingredients to be roasted as you go.
