Cauliflower with garlic and fennel

Side Serves 4 20 min
The sweet anise taste of fennel adds a lovely note to this gently spiced vegetarian side dish. To finish it off, squeeze over a little lemon juice and sprinkle with fresh herbs if you have any – coriander, mint and parsley all work well.

  • 2 tbsp fennel seeds
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 cauliflower, broken into florets
