Ingredients (Serves 2)

1
cauliflower, divided into florets
3
tablespoon
olive oil
6
garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
170
ml
olive oil
12
pimientos de Padron (Padron peppers)
100
g
almonds, roasted and coarsely chopped
1
bunch
parsley, chopped
1
tablespoon
dark chocolate, finely grated
1

Preparation:

  • Preheat the oven on the grill setting. Drizzle the cauliflower with olive oil, salt and spread on a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Grill for about 15 minutes until the florets are nicely browned, then turn over and grill until they are evenly browned.
  • Meanwhile, heat 170ml olive oil with the garlic in a frying pan over medium heat until the garlic is caramelised and golden (4-6 minutes); transfer to a bowl and leave to cool. Heat some olive oil in the pan, fry the peppers over high heat until they blister and are lightly browned (4-6 minutes).
  • Drain the peppers on kitchen towel and season with salt. Now stir the chopped almonds, parsley, chocolate, sherry, salt and pepper in the prepared garlic oil to make a salsa, season to taste and spread on a serving platter.
  • Spread the grilled cauliflower on top, garnish with roasted peppers and some fresh parsley.
