Roast Cauliflower, Kale and Hazelnut Salad

Roast Cauliflower, Kale and Hazelnut Salad, Modern Food Stories, Cauliflower recipes

Today a light, roast cauliflower salad for spring. Crisped and roasted to perfection in coconut oil and tossed with fresh parsley, gut loving kale, toasted hazelnuts and a zingy dijon dressing. Simple pleasures in gutsy measures.

It’s a long standing joke me and my love affair with cauliflowers. Never a dull moment watching me attempt to cycle home with 5 on my back and 2 pumpkins. I like to pretend it’s weight training!

I’ve been thinking about setting up my lightroom presets this week and wondered if you’d like to see and hear more about my editing and shooting process, how I source my backgrounds, my top food styling tips etc. Is this something you’d like to see more of here on the blog? Let me know in the comments below. I’d love to share all i’ve learnt so far with you. Jo x
