Marinated Roasted Cauliflower with Peri Peri rice

A delicious vegan recipe that is full of flavour but easy to make. Moreish sticky marinated cauliflower sprinkled with sesame seeds for extra texture without the need of deep frying. Served with our Peri Peri rice for a kick of medium level spice.

Tildalicious twist: using smoked paprika is a great way of bringing the smoke of a barbecue with the convenience of using an oven instead.

  • Easy
  • Serves 2




  • 2 tbsp of white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp of cornflour
  • 90ml of sweet chilli sauce

  4. Tip the sticky cauliflower onto an oven tray lined with baking paper and sprinkle over the sesame seeds. Finally, drizzle over the sesame oil

  5. Cook in the middle of the hot oven for 15 - 20 minutes until golden and cooked

  6. Whilst the cauliflower is cooking, cut the tomatoes in half and spoon out the seeds. Roughly chop the flesh. Cook the peas in boiling water, then drain

  7. Just before the cauliflower is ready, heat the pouch of Tilda Peri Peri rice according to pack instructions then mix through the tomatoes and drained peas. Top the prepared hot rice with the cauliflower and sprinkle over the coriander. Serve straight away
