|1 piece||Palm sugar, (3cm)|
|¼ cup||Soy sauce|
|1 clove||Garlic, crushed|
|4 tsp||Sesame oil|
|1 tsp||Finely grated root ginger|
|2 tsp||Diced chilli|
|¼ cup||Coriander leaves|
|1 serving||Lime juice, to taste|
- To make the dressing smash the palm sugar and mix with the soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, chilli, coriander and lime juice.
- Cut the purple and green caulis into florets. Blanch quickly then refresh in icy water to retain the colours.
- Very thinly slice the courgettes lengthwise. Blanch quickly. Refresh in icy water. Roll each slice into a coil
- Place the hemp oil in a hot pan and add the thinly sliced garlic and the florets and toss. Add the edamame beans and heat through.
- Place the spinach, toasted seeds and the mung beans in a large bowl. Add the cauli mixture and toss. Add the crispy garlic and shallots with a splash of the dressing.
- To serve, make a ring with the larger cauliflower pieces and fill the centre of the dish with the salad. Place courgette coils in between the larger pieces on the outside so they can be seen. Drizzle with more dressing.
