METHOD

Preheat panggangan to 210C/190C fan forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Place cauliflower on 1 tray. Drizzle with 1 1/2 tbs oil. Season. Place sweet potato on remaining tray. Drizzle with 1 tbs oil. Season, then roast both trays for 30 minutes or until golden.

Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place tomato, cut-side down, on prepared tray. Drizzle with 2 tsp oil. Season, then roast for 15 minutes or until skins soften. Remove and discard skin. Coarsely chop.

Add cumin, ginger, cinnamon, coriander and allspice. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until aromatic. Stir in tomato and stock. Simmer for 1 minute. Add cauliflower and sweet potato. Reduce heat to low. Cook, covered, stirring occasionally, for 15-17 minutes or until vegies are tender. Stir in chickpeas. Simmer, uncovered, for 6 minutes until warmed through. Remove from heat. Stir through half the coriander.

Reduce panggangan to 200C/180C fan forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Roll up Lebanese bread. Thinly slice into rounds. Place bread and pine nuts on prepared tray. Drizzle with remaining oil. Season. Roast for 4-5 minutes until golden and crisp.

For the yoghurt dressing, combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Season. Sprinkle casserole with the remaining coriander. Sprinkle the bread with pine nuts. Serve casserole with the bread, yoghurt dressing and lemon wedges.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
