This fiery roasted cauliflower with lemon, caper and chilli dressing not only packs some feisty flavours, but is super healthy. It’s vegan, gluten- free, and works for both Mediterranean and low carb diets.

Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C.

Toss the cauliflower florets with 1 1/2 tbsp of the olive oil and spread them out over a large baking sheet. Season well, and then roast for 25 minutes, or until golden.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the remaining olive oil with the lemon zest and juice, chilli, capers and most of the parsley. Season with some freshly cracked black pepper. Arrange the roasted cauliflower in a serving dish. Pour over the dressing and toss to coat. Serve warm, scattered with the remaining parsley.
