1 small cauliflower with leaves
1 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp olive oil
150g halloumi, cubed
390g tin green lentils, drained and rinsed
30g fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
½ lemon, juiced
100g cherry tomatoes, quartered
Method1. Preheat the grill to medium. Peel off the cauliflower leaves, breaking up any large ones if needed, and set aside. Coarsely grate the cauliflower florets and the stalk, then spread out on a large baking tray. Sprinkle with the cumin seeds, 1 tbsp oil and some seasoning; toss to coat evenly.
2. Grill for 6 mins, then stir. Rub the cauliflower leaves with a little oil, add to the baking tray and grill for 6 mins.
3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the halloumi and fry, stirring occasionally, for 2 mins until golden and crispy.
4. Remove the tray of cauliflower leaves from the grill, then mix the cauliflower rice on a serving plate with the lentils, parsley and lemon juice. Serve topped with the crispy cauliflower leaves, halloumi and tomatoes.
Choose a cauliflower with small green leaves that don’t cover the whole head, so you won’t have to break them up before roasting. Halve any larger leaves.
If you don't have cauliflower try using broccoli.

I had never heard (or thought of) using cauliflower leaves like that. Thanks for the tip.
I'd try that.

Sounds very good....I am sorry for all the cauliflower leaves I have wasted! Carrot tops can make a broth or be added to soups...

I haven't heard of halloumi. Good to learn something new!

I must admit I never use the leaves what a great idea so their is no waste.
I've never used cauliflower leaves, I bet there's so many parts of vegetables that get wasted.

OOh I like very much rice in salads ! I put lots of ingredients Jan.

I learned something new today, Jan. I had NO idea I could use the cauliflower leaves. This sounds wonderful and I must remember this recipe the next time I purchase a head of cauliflower.
Now that's my kind of dish.
This Cauliflower Rice and Halloumi Lentil Salad looks delicious. I had not a salad with rice before, thank you for sharing this new kind of recipe. Wishing you a wonderful weekend, Stay Safe, my friend!
I never thought of using the cauliflower leaves! Lentils are cooking on my stove right now for a lentil salad with feta cheese.
I have cauliflower in my garden I will try the leaves.
