Marcus Wareing’s whole roasted satay cauliflower elevates the humble veg to star ingredient. The moreish satay marinade works with many dishes – it’s great with chicken. This recipe is from Marcus’ Kitchen by Marcus Wareing (Harper Collins £22).

Our spiced roast cauliflower with barley couscous is a great meat-free option for midweek.

Ingredients

  • 1 large cauliflower, outer leaves removed and stalk trimmed
  • 50g unsalted peanuts, toasted in a dry pan, then chopped
  • ¼ bunch coriander, leaves and tender stems chopped

For the satay marinade

  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • Thumb-size piece fresh ginger, peeled
  • 1 red onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tbsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tbsp garam masala
  • ½ tsp hot chilli powder (or to taste)
  • 3 tbsp kecap manis (sweet soy sauce)
  • 100g chunky peanut butter
  • 400ml tin coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 160°C fan/gas 4. First, make the satay marinade. Put the garlic, ginger, onion and salt in a food processor and whizz to a coarse paste. Add the rest of the ingredients for the marinade and whizz until smooth.
  2. Make sure the cauliflower can sit flat on its stalk, then place it in a large, deep casserole. Pour the satay marinade over the cauliflower and cover the dish with the lid or foil. Put in the oven and bake for 1 hour, basting it regularly during the cooking. Halfway through cooking, add 100ml water to ensure it doesn’t dry out.
  3. Once baked, the cauliflower should be soft. Check it by piercing it with a knife – there should be no resistance. If the cauliflower isn’t quite ready, pop it back in the oven for 10 minutes and check again.
  4. To finish the cauliflower, sprinkle it with the chopped toasted peanuts and coriander and serve it from the casserole (or transfer it to a serving plate if you prefer, sprinkling it with the peanuts and coriander once it’s on the plate).

  1. Marcus’ tips:  “Next time, swap the cauliflower for 4 chicken breasts. Brown the breasts, then add to a casserole and pour over the satay marinade. Cook for 35-40 minutes until cooked through, then serve with rice.”

  2. Make the satay marinade in advance. It will keep for a couple of days in an airtight container in the fridge.
