Serves: 4
For the salad:
  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • a pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin sesame oil
  • ½ cauliflower head
  • 2 apples, such as Honey Crunch
  • 2 avocados
  • 3 handful of rocket
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • 4 strangs of dill
  • a few apple chips (optional)
For the apple-dressing:
  • 4 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of homemade apple sauce
  • ½ teaspoon of sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  1. Drain the chickpeas. Place them on a baking sheet aligned with baking paper. Drizzle a bit of sesame oil, cayenne pepper and sea salt on top and bake it for 25 – 35 minutes until crispy.
  2. Cut the cauliflower into florets. Pulse it in a food processor until it has crumbled down to a grain-like texture. Combine the cauliflower with the turmeric, olive oil and sea salt. Place it on a baking sheet aligned with baking paper and bake for 15 minutes. You don’t want it to be cooked through, just warmed up a little.
  3. Slice the apple and the avocado, wash the rocket, chop the onion, parsley and dill. Mix the ingredients for the dressing.
  4. To assemble, place the rocket on a large place or bowl, add the warm cauliflower, apple slices, apple chips, avocados, red onion, parsley and dill and drizzle with the dressing. Mix everything together and serve with the crispy chickpeas.
