1
Preheat the oven to 175°C/gas mark 4
2
To begin, spread the cashew nuts or walnuts on a flat roasting tray and bake for 12 minutes, tossing them halfway through to ensure an even colour. Once roasted, remove the tray from the oven and leave to cool
3
To make the cashew milk, take 80% of the nuts and place in the blender along with a pinch of salt – reserve the rest of the nuts for the salad. Add 200ml water a little at a time while blending on high, until the mixture is smooth and creamy – it may need a little more water if it’s still too thick
4
Take one of the cauliflowers and cut off the florets. Shave half the florets into thin slices using a mandoline or grater and set the shavings aside for the salad. Roughly chop the remaining florets – these will be used to make the cauliflower purée
5
Heat a good layer of rapeseed or vegetable oil in a deep frying pan and sweat off the chopped cauliflower with a generous pinch of salt for 5 minutes. Add enough water to cover the cauliflower and cook until soft. Transfer the cauliflower to a blender using a slotted spoon and blitz until smooth and creamy, seasoning to taste. Adjust the consistency with the cooking liquid, if necessary
6
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4
7
To roast the cauliflower, take the second cauliflower head, remove the leaves and cut into 2cm thick steaks
8
Add a 1cm deep layer of rapeseed oil to a medium-sized frying pan and place over a medium heat. Coat the cauliflower slices in curry powder and salt, then place in the pan. Turn the cauliflower slices, browning on both sides and basting with the oil until lightly golden. Cook in the oven for 8 minutes until it reaches a deeper golden colour and is tender
9
To make the salad, mix the prepared cauliflower shavings with the extra virgin rapeseed oil, lemon zest, juice, roasted cashews and salt
10
To serve, add a generous spoonful of the cauliflower purée to each plate. Add some salad, drizzle over the cashew cream and top with the cauliflower steaks. Serve immediately
