Cauliflower is a wonderful filling ingredient, especially when you’re eating an all-plant diet. Without being too calorific, cauliflower is rather filling and full of fibre. Furthermore, cauliflower contains a lot of antioxidants and various nutrients, including significant amounts of Vitamins C, K and B6.

First, break up your cauliflower into florets. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a large pot. Then add ras el hanout and fry for 30 seconds until fragrant. If you don’t have any ras el hanout handy, it’s very simple to mix it yourself. Here’s the recipe for our ras el hanout spice mix.

Add cauliflower florets, ground almonds and stir to coat in spices. Then pour in the vegetable stock, cover with the lid, bring to the boil and leave to simmer on low heat for 20 minutes or until cauliflower is tender.

In the meantime, toast almond flakes in a dry pan until slightly browned and smelling nutty.

When the cauliflower is tender, tip into a liquidised or use a stick blender to make a silky smooth soup. Finally, divide between two bowls, drizzle with harissa and sprinkle with toasted almond flakes.
