- 1/4 c olive or avocado Oil (extra if needed)
- 1 tbsp or more dukkah (see notes for homemade mix)
- 1 tsp minced garlic minced or 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 cup chopped mixed greens (spinach, kale, or shredded brussel sprouts)
- 1/4 c raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
- pinch of black pepper
- pinch of sea salt
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- 2 mint leaves (chopped, to garnish) – optional
- 1 sprig of oregano leaves, to garnish
- sliced lemon to garnish
- Micro-greens or sprouts to garnish
- Optional crumbled feta or parmesan to serve (omit for paleo/vegan)
- Optional dried fruit to garnish.
- optional creamy dressing of choice
- Preheat oven to 425F. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper or grease. Set aside.
- In large bowl, place all your diced/chopped cauliflower, mushroom, tomatoes, and onions.
- Toss in 1/4 cup oil and then add in your dukkah spice mix, garlic, salt, pepper, and toss again.
- Mix in your chopped greens and toss again. Feel free to add in any more vegetables if you’d like more bulk to the salad.
- Lay the chopped vegetables on the baking sheet and sprinkle the pumpkin seeds on top.
Season with salt, pepper, and fresh lemon juice.
- Roast in oven for 15-20 minutes, checking at 15 minutes for doneness.
Once cauliflower is golden brown, remove from oven and toss in pan.
- Garnish with just a touch fresh mint leaf (optional), lemon slices, and a few leafs of fresh oregano.
Serve onto plates with extra green or sprouts. You can also just place in large serving bowl.
- Drizzle with extra olive oil if needed. Or use your favorite creamy dressing. I love using my warm onion dressing.
If you want to make this salad more filling, add in a few tablespoons of chopped dried fruit and crumbled feta.
If you don’t have dukkah spice, you can making your own, easy! Replace 1 tbsp of dukkah seasoning with the following:
• 1 tsp cumin
• 1 tsp sesame seeds
• 1/2 tsp coriander seeds
• 1/4 tsp sea salt/pepper each
• 1 tsp finely crushed toasted nuts or hazelnuts
• A pinch of sugar, red pepper flakes, and optional fennel seeds.
This roasted salad is great by itself or free to add in a cooked grain, dried fruit, feta, lentils, chicken, or beef.
