Method
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Prepare the cauliflower by removing the outer green leaves and discarding them. Break into florets, place in a food processor and whizz in batches until coarse.
  • Empty the cauli-rice into a mixing bowl, then add the olive oil, cumin, turmeric and salt and pepper and mix well.
  • Mix the harissa with the extra virgin olive oil. Cut the tomatoes in half and toss in the harissa oil, then place into a small roasting dish.
  • Next, toast the spices in a dry frying pan until fragrant. Place into a pestle and mortar with the walnuts and grind to a medium/fine texture.
  • Prepare the kale by removing any woody stems. Massage 2 teaspoons of olive oil into the leaves, making sure they all get an even coating, then sprinkle with 2 teaspoons of the walnut spice mixture.
  • Tip the cauli-rice out onto two baking trays lined with parchment and roast in the oven for 12 minutes. Roast the tomatoes for 15 minutes, and lay the seasoned kale out on a flat tray lined with parchment and roast for 15-20 minutes.
  • Boil the eggs for 5 minutes (or a little longer if you like the yolk to be cooked through).
  • Mix the chickpeas into the cauli-rice and spoon into two large bowls, then top with the kale and roasted tomatoes. Peel the eggs and roll into the walnut spice mix, then place on top to serve.
