    • 1 cauliflower broken into florets, tender leaves kept
    • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
    • 30 ml olive oil
    • 250 g pre-cooked puy lentils
    For the salsa:
    • 1 clove garlic peeled
    • 2 spring onions whole, roots cut
    • 5g fresh parsley
    • 5g fresh coriander
    • 12 baby plum tomatoes or cherry tomatoes
    • 45ml olive oil
    • 1 orange
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1 lemon
  • Method

    For the cauliflower:

    • Start with the cauliflower; break it into florets by hand and place it onto a large baking tray along with any tender leaves and the stalk sliced. Drizzle with olive oil, a pinch of salt and smoked paprika and roast in a preheated oven for 30 minutes.

    • Once done, immediately stir in the lentils with a little extra drizzle of olive oil.

    For the salsa:
    • While the cauliflower is roasting, make the salsa; cut the orange in half and drop the whole thing into the MultiPro Go along with the juice of half a lemon and the remaining salsa ingredients and pulse until you have a fine puree; add a splash of water to loosen if needed. Pour into a sterilised jar and reserve (can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days).

    For the steak:
    • Once the salsa is made, season the steaks very liberally with salt and pepper and place onto a pre-heated BBQ for 3 minutes on each side, then remove from the heat and leave to rest.

    To serve:
    • When ready to serve, slice each steak into six strips (use about half a steak per person), divide the roasted cauliflower mixture between your serving bowls, top with a few slices of steak per person and spoon over some of the salsa – enjoy!
