3. Cauliflower Popcorn
- 1 head cauliflower separated into 2 x larger than popcorn pieces (they’ll shrink in the dehydrator)
- 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- Salt & fresh cracked pepper to taste
- 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Shake everything up in a large ziplock bag until all the pieces are thoroughly coated. Deep fry or bake it.
4. Chocolate filled Samosa
- 55g plain flour
- 12-15 tbsp water
- 20 sheets of spring roll/samosa pastry measuring approx. 20cm x 20cm
- 20 caramel squares or caramel truffles
- 100g milk chocolate, roughly chopped
In a bowl, combine the flour and water to form a paste. The paste should be ‘gloopy’. If it’s too thick add a bit more water or if it’s too runny then add a bit more flour – adjust until you get the desired consistency.
Take 1 sheet of pastry and fold it into a third and place it horizontally in front of you. Make the Samosa pocket. Place the caramel chocolate into the pocket, as well as some chopped milk chocolate.
Spread paste over the regions of pastry outside the pocket, and fold the triangle of filling continuously. Make your folds as tight as possible, making sure all point are sealed off and be careful not to let any filling spill out. The caramel square/truffle might give the samosa a bit of a funny shape but try to work it into a triangle.
Repeat above steps until all the pastry sheets have been used. Fry in hot oil for approx. 5 minutes or until they’ve turned golden brown on the outside. Best served warm
