Wholemeal Cauliflower Pockets

Recipe by:  Kavya Amarasinghe

Is it yummy?

 It’s got a blend of spices clinging onto the roasted cauliflower and a creamy acidic sauce drizzled on top accompanied with crunchy lettuce and all of this is stuffed inside healthy whole meal flat bread.

Is it sustainable?

I am using cheap seasonal vegetables like cauliflower. And the only animal product I am using is Greek yogurt however this can be substituted with coconut cream for vegans.

Is it healthy?

This meal is low in fats and is high in fiber from the whole meal flour and cauliflower. I also added peanuts for texture and taste but peanuts are also is high in protein.

The total cost for this meal is: $6.70

Serves 4 people

Method

Flatbread

  1. Mix up all the dry ingredients.
  2. Make a well in the center and add the oil and water.

  4. Keep the dough ball covered for 30 minutes.

Filling

  1. Wash the cauliflower and cut it up into bite size pieces.

  4. Turn on the heat then, pour oil onto the pan. Once the oil is heated up add the cauliflower. Keep the heat on medium.
