    1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Put the cauliflower florets onto a baking tray and toss with the olive oil, cumin seeds and some seasoning. Roast for 20 minutes, until softened and golden. Meanwhile, put the lentils in a pan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until cooked, then drain.
    2. Tip into a large serving bowl. To make the dressing, put all the ingredients into a jar and season well. Seal the jar and give it a good shake. Pour the dressing over the warm lentils, add the tomatoes, celery, capers and cauliflower and toss to combine. Scatter over the basil leaves, to serve.
