Hey Simone!

I was thinking exactly the same thing this week!  I made resolutions: a little less coffee, a little more green juice. (mm, could we turn this into a funky tune? ;-))

I put this salad together yesterday, with the vegetables that were lying around in my fridge. It was a speedy action, but I was pleasantly suprised! Cauliflower, by the way, what a spectaculair comeback for a vegetable nobody younger then 30 seemed to look at anymore. Mushy cauliflower with bechamel, no thank you, mam! But sinds paleo, or Ottolenghi...not sure which, it is cauliflower galore in trendy foodland! It's roasted in garlic, dressed in exotic spices, made into healthy pizza's (yours is delicious! Care to share?) and processed into fluffy clouds of grainfree rice or couscous. Even I have a renewed respect. Mjamm! Like...
