Introduction

Delicious, quick and fresh-tasting spicy meal or snack. This is great eaten hot or cold, I've even been known to take leftovers to school for breakfast, where everybody wants a taste. The potato and cauliflower are cooked in advance, and if you do all your chopping, measuring and grating too, the actual cooking takes minutes. If you're doing WeightWatchers, just weigh the potato and measure the oil - everything else is point-free!

Additional Information

Coriander leaves are unavailable where I live, so I simply leave them out. Use them if you can, I'm sure they'll enhance the dish.

For vegetarians and vegans, make sure you use a vegetarian/vegan-friendly brand of Worcestershire sauce.
