Crispy and flavourful tandoori cauliflower and chickpeas in warm tortillas with a creamy and spicy avocado chutney with pink slaw and fresh coriander leaves, sounds so exciting right? We are a huge fan of taco, whenever there is a warm weather and for me, it is very hard to stand in the kitchen to make full Indian meals, we opt out for al fresco meals where we can enjoy outdoor dining and weather.

For us, this year summer was unbearable, scorching and humid weather was making me tired. Every other day of the week I was skipping making full Indian dinner for the family, but that does not mean that my family would stay hungry or we go for a takeaway, instead, we would enjoy easy, simple but delicious and healthy meals like Tandoori cauliflower and Chickpea Taco. I just don't have to slave in the kitchen as I can cut up all the vegetables out in my back garden. And while they bake in the oven I would enjoy making avocado chutney and pink slaw which does not require any cooking after 30-40 minutes our meals are ready!

Tacos Turned out exceptionally well- so colourful and with an explosion of taste with every bite. So much freshness going on- it's fun food, just relax and eat.

How did I make Tandoori cauliflower and Chickpea Taco Vegan?

Usually, tandoori marinate is made using yogurt, but I used dry mango powder and lemon juice and I bought vegan wraps.

How can I make Cauliflower and Chickpea Taco under 45 minutes? 

Buy tortilla wraps and pink slaw from the store, instead of making at home. Use canned chickpeas. While cauliflower and chickpeas are baking in the oven for 30-35 minutes make the dressing or sauce. After 40 minutes you'll be rewarded with this ultimate Tandoori Cauliflower and Chickpea Taco with Avocado chutney.

There is something about the appeal of a dish, it always looks and tastes better when it is served in beautiful tableware. The type of meal and setting heavily influences the type of tableware used.

Recently, I was sent Nesting Bowls from the Studio Blue collection by Denby. Denby is a brand synonymous with Britain and with tableware so I was really happy to get the chance. Denby has been leading in pottery - all of which have been made in the UK for over 200 years.



The bowls were very stylishly packaged - they would be perfect as a gift! The bowls themselves are very beautiful - perfect but still rustic. And the colours are harmonious. I love the 4 different sizes for the bowls, ideal for serving a complete meal. They match perfectly with the summer season, with barbeques and get togethers but similarly would work fantastically in the cooler months. I can see myself cradling the bowl that's filled with hot stews!

These handcrafted bowls are freezer, oven, microwave and dishwasher safe, so there is no need to panic as the same bowl goes from the oven to freezer or freezer to oven, no extra tupperware needed and your manicure won't chip ;) 





I'm looking forward to using them more and more in my kitchen. I recently came across an article about how different coloured foods look on different plates, for example, blue pairs well with yellow/orange foods. It is such a happy coincidence that curries are so often made in my home. I think I'll just keep the bowls out all of the time - no need to neatly and safely store them!

As usual, my daughter has her eye on them too to take back to uni. Sorry Hayley, these ones are for mamma only!
