Black Olives Marinated in Herbs ingredients: Black olives, vegetable oil, herbs (oregano, savoury, thyme, rosemary), sea salt
Summary: Mediterranean cuisine is renowned for it's abundance in vegetables and olive oil. This vegan, gluten free Turkish inspired warm aubergine, courgette and peppers salad is a great example. A bit like a sautée salad if you wish, this recipe takes minutes to make and is guaranteed to become a family favourite. Great as a light lunch or dinner, or served with a veggie burger at home or at a barbecue.
Try adding some pre-cooked chickpeas or white beans for a more substantial dinner.
Summary: Can pizza contribute to your 5 (or 7) a day ? Yes.
Especially if you swap flour for cancer-fighting cauliflower and make this wheat free, gluten free, grain free, low carb cauliflower pizza base.
Of course, many will argue that this is a world apart from a fire oven crop pizza crust, and they would be right, but cauliflower pizza crust is actually surprisingly delicious and super quick to make. And a really brilliant idea for those who want to reduce their carbs intake, whilst still enjoying pizza, with the added bonus of cauliflower's health benefits.
A square or rectangular cauliflower cut up in small squares would also make great healthy finger food at a party.
For a vegan pizza crust, replace every egg with 10g (about 1 tablespoon) chia seeds and 2 tablespoons water, mixed well and allowed to set for at least 30 minutes. Use all vegan toppings and leave out the cheese or use your favourite melting vegan cheese substitute.
