Recipe from Monica Shaw




  • 1 x romanesco cauliflower
  • 1 x tsp olive
  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp raisins
  • 1 x red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1 handful dill, chopped
  • salt & pepper to season


  • Whisk the honey with the vinegar, then toss with the onions, raisins and a pinch of salt. If you have time leave this for 30 minutes to allow the raisins to plump up and the onions to soften.
  • Cut the Romanesco into florets and steam for about 4 minutes, so tender but still crisp.
  • Heat a grill pan on high heat, toss the cauliflower with olive oil then grill, turning occaisionaly so that it gets nice black crispy bits on all sides.
  • Toss the chargrilled cauliflower in a bowl with the vinegar-onion-raisin mixture. Season as needed, and serve sprinkled with the sliced almonds and dill.
