Miso Roasted Cauliflower with Tofu, Quinoa and Greens

This was last-minute-Monday night dinner at it’s most flavoursome. We love vegetables that can happily roast away whilst do other kitchen activities or even read. We love quinoa that can be bulk cooked to find itself on this merry plate, in a salad, or in a lunch box.

A magnificent way to get your veg in or celebrate a meat-free Monday. I hope you enjoy the wonders of your local grocer as well as the heroics of miso and its ability to transform dishes with minimal fuss and washing.


  • 1/2 head cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup quinoa (double if you are hoping to meal prep, its super handy to have in the fridge)
  • 250g tofu (I bought a pre-marinaded one but to make your own marinade you can simply mix a tsp of peanut butter with a tbsp of soy sauce and voila!)
  • a cup of any seasonal leafy greens like spinach or bok choy
  • tomato
  • 1 tbsp miso paste
  • mixed spice
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Slice cauliflower into florets and rub miso paste into them. Lay on roasting tray or arrange on air-fryer tray season. If using a conventional oven, roast at 200 degrees for 20 minutes. Otherwise, set airfryer to 190 degrees for 18 minutes.
  2. While you have that on the go, fill and pop on your kettle to get 1&1/2 cup of hot fresh boiled water. Pour into a pot with 1/2 cup quinoa, cook on medium heat 10-12 minutes.
  3. Slice greens and sauté on medium heat in butter, salt, pepper and mixed spice. Give it a loving stir in between slicing tomatoes and your other various kitchen activities. This should be ready in about 6 minutes. When the cauliflower is 4 minutes off, carefully remove from oven and arrange tofu within to heat it up.
  4. Once all has been roasted, sautéed, sliced and cooked arrange on a plate or in your lunch box to be enjoyed the next day. A tsp of left over marinade never goes a’mis on the greens, as pictured.
